Though his legal activism has only inched the process forward98 percent of refugees from Mexico are still denied asylumhis myriad legal cases and the resultant media fallout has increasingly put US immigration policy, the corrupt state of Mexico, and the political basis of immigration, asylum, and deportation decisions on the spot
