Jeff Sessions excludes domestic, gang violence from asylum claims

Attorney General Sessions to Unveil Changes to Asylum Rules, Reduce Reasons Used for Asylum

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".

Michelle Brané, director of the Women's Refugee Commission's Migrant Rights and Justice program headquartered in NY, said, "Attorney General Sessions' decision to limit the reasons why people can claim asylum is a devastating blow to families who come to our country seeking protection and safety". ´"Unlike the federal judiciary system, the USA immigration courts fall under the Justice Department´s jurisdiction, and the attorney general can intervene".

The attorney general said during his speech his impending decision would restore "sound principles of asylum and long standing principles of immigration law".

Immigrants say they have credible fear about returning to their home countries, so border agents have no choice but to place them in asylum proceedings.

In the law's current interpretation, foreign nationals can apply for USA asylum if they claim persecution or fear because of race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group or political viewpoint, the report said.

The American Immigration Council, a nonprofit immigrant advocacy group, said Sessions is "taking away a vital lifeline" for victims of severe domestic and gang violence. 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". "It is nearly certain that women will be killed as a result of this decision that will return them to their abusers".

A Charlotte, North Carolina-based immigration judge denied the woman asylum.

Earlier this year, Sessions declared he would attempt to ensure that every person who crosses the border illegally would be prosecuted, and he has staunchly defended a new policy of separating women and children at the border, including those seeking asylum.

Hours before he issued Monday's decision, Sessions told immigration judges that it will be their "duty to carry out this ruling".
