During the past several years, the number of cases involving INTERPOL Red Notices and diffusions before the U.S. immigration courts has risen significantly. This suggests that the number of individuals subject to government requests disseminated through INTERPOL who seek asylum or other immigration relief in the U.S. has also increased. The U.S. government’s handling of visa applications is generally not subject to judicial review, and there is no publicly available and reliable data on the number of U.S. visas denied or revoked due to INTERPOL alerts.
