    So now being afraid of their husband is worthy of asylum. And 100+ million women around the world plan to come to America over this newfound stupidity.
    I once considered leaving the US for that reason.

    The ACLU issued a statement on the proceedings:
    Our clients on that deportation flight, Carmen* and her daughter, fled El Salvador to escape two decades of horrific sexual abuse by her husband and death threats from a violent gang. Carmen was repeatedly raped, stalked, and threatened with death by her abusive husband, even when they were living apart. In June 2018, she and her daughter escaped, seeking asylum in the United States. Despite asylum officers finding that their accounts were truthful, they were ultimately denied them asylum protection because they did not have a “credible fear of persecution.”

    This disconnect is the direct result of new policies issued by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that wrongly instruct asylum officers to deny whole categories of asylum claims, specifically gutting protections for immigrants fleeing domestic violence and gang brutality.

    Sessions has now characterized these types of persecution as insufficient to invoke asylum protections, despite decades of settled domestic and international law which recognize gender-based persecution as a basis for asylum. Federal courts have also recognized asylum claims in a variety of circumstances involving gang brutality.

    Seeking asylum is not a crime. It is protected under U.S. and international law. From the introduction to the CONVENTION RELATING TO THE STATUS OF REFUGEES:
    The Convention further stipulates that, subject to specific exceptions, refugees should not be penalized for their illegal entry or stay. This recognizes that the seeking of asylum can require refugees to breach immigration rules. Prohibited penalties might include being charged with immigration or criminal offences relating to the seeking of asylum, or being arbitrarily detained purely on the basis of seeking asylum. Importantly, the Convention contains various safeguards against the expulsion of refugees. The principle of nonrefoulement is so fundamental that no reservations or derogations may be made to it. It provides that no one shall expel or return (“refouler”) a refugee against his or her will, in any manner whatsoever, to a territory where he or she fears threats to life or freedom.

    Not that we bother with niceties like adhering to international law anymore. (Or to any other kind of law, for that matter.)

    The administration breaks the law nearly every day and the Republicans in Congress pretend it's all perfectly fine and there is nothing wrong at all. I hope they understand how they're going to go down in history.

    Not to mention that the gang violence is so minor that it can't be used to justify fleeing but it's so major that it is routinely used to justify the need to build a 2000 mile long wall.

    More of that conservative dissonance.

    A bill introduced in Congress would automatically deny asylum claims to anyone who passed through Mexico or other nations and did not claim asylum in those nations.

    Asylum claims have risen because of the increase in violence and breakdown of the societies in certain countries.

    The refugees do go to other countries.

    But in Central America, the safety issues often follow people when they try to move internally. And those fleeing violence there are increasingly likely to seek refuge in other countries of Central America. Though the vast majority of asylum seekers still make their way to the U.S., the number who have gone to Belize, Panama, Mexico and Costa Rica has grown as well, according to the United Nations Refugee Agency.

    And even if they head to the U.S., they are increasingly likely to be stopped en route. Approximately 94,800 people from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras were apprehended crossing into the U.S. in 2017, but an additional 81,100 people from those three countries were stopped at the Mexico border.

    In all, just a fraction of people fleeing violence and poverty in Central America each month is attempting to come to the U.S. And those who do make it to the U.S. have often moved internally before making the dangerous journey north, according to interviews by UNHCR and others.

    The Trump administration’s recent policy shifts are supposed to deter only the fraction that make it to the U.S. border. It may work for a time, but policy changes at the border won’t improve the underlying causes of displacement in Central America. And other Trump administration policies combined with growing turmoil in Nicaragua could cause displacements to rise.
