AbstractAsylum decisions are an integral part of immigration, but its processes are seemingly unknown. To understand how this system operates an in-depth analysis of how asylum works, its outcomes, and the factors that affect its results are studied. In this review, there is an exploration into historical factors and the creation of current policies. It then transitions to the role of Immigration Judges, regulatory groups, asylum seeker characteristics, and relevant legislation on asylum decisions. After these topics have been studied there is a discussion of potential solutions for asylum cases, and areas to explore.
