He passed every hurdle to receive asylum

This was heard on the MSNBC Chris Hayes show.  It is a nice congruent conflation of “cleared every hurdle” and “passed every test”.   A big thanks to “Eagle-Ear” Frank King for hearing this one.  He also mentioned that you don’t get credit for passing a hurdle, or for clearing a test.  Word.
