US Attorney General curbs asylum for immigrant victims of violence

US won’t give asylum to victims of gangs domestic abuse

Earlier, a 2014 immigration review board ruled that "depending on the facts and evidence in an individual case, "married women in Guatemala who are unable to leave their relationship" can constitute a cognizable particular social group that forms the basis of a claim for asylum".

Last year, the Trump administration used an executive order to put a travel ban in place, banning refugees from entering the USA from certain countries.

"Generally, claims by aliens pertaining to domestic violence or gang violence perpetrated by non-governmental actors will not qualify for asylum", Sessions said in a ruling.

The Trump administration has chose to stop granting asylum to victims of gang violence and domestic abuse - essentially blocking tens of thousands of people from seeking refuge in the United States, many of them women.

Sessions took aim at one of five categories to qualify for asylum - persecution for membership in a social group - calling it "inherently ambiguous".

Sessions' decision drew immediate rebukes from dozens of immigration rights advocate groups and lawyers.

"The Trump Administration's inhumanity and heartlessness know no bounds", Pelosi said in a news release.

It was not immediately clear how many cases the decision could affect.

In immigration court, certain opinions published by the Board of Immigration Appeals, the highest immigration court, serve to set national legal precedent. House votes against reviving tech office MORE announced the change in policy on Monday, saying the asylum system was being "abused to the detriment of the rule of law".

Sessions has been unusually active in this practice compared to his predecessors by exercising his intervention authority to make it harder for some people to legally remain in the United States.

Sessions told immigration judges in Washington that illegal immigrants are misusing the asylum system.

He noted that, for the last five years, only 20 per cent of asylum claims have been found to be meritorious after a hearing before an immigration judge.

An investigation by Reuters previous year found that Couch orders immigrants deported 89 percent of the time. "It is nearly certain that women will be killed as a result of this decision that will return them to their abusers". "The Trump immigration approach is increasingly defined by immorality and depravity".
