US Attorney General Jeff Sessions told immigration judges that domestic violence and gang violence will no longer qualify as reasons to grant asylum to immigrants. He stated that asylum was never meant to alleviate all serious problems that people have every day all over the world. This order closes a loophole that was used by the recent caravan of immigrants from Central America who demanded asylum based on gang violence.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Monday domestic violence and gang violence no longer qualify as sufficient reasons to grant asylum to immigrants.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced this ruling at an annual 3-day conference of the Executive Officer for Immigration Review (EOIR) in Virginia.

In a speech to immigration judges Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “It will be your duty to carry out this ruling.”

“Asylum was never meant to alleviate all problems, even all serious problems, that people face every day all over the world,” Sessions said.

Sessions also said in his speech that the American people voted for safe secure borders when they elected Trump in 2016:

“Let’s be clear: We have a goal. And that goal is to end the lawlessness that now exists in our immigration system. The American people have spoken. They have spoken in our laws and they have spoken in our elections. They want a safe, secure border and a lawful system of immigration that actually works and serves the national interest. Thank you for what you do, let’s deliver this for the American people.”

Asylum applications exploded under the Obama administration thanks to a dangerous ‘catch and release’ policy.

Obama’s failed policy created a surge in illegal immigration with thousands of migrants demanding asylum at the US-Mexico border every year.

In April, a huge caravan of illegal aliens from Central America marched their way through Mexico to the US border seeking citizenship, stating gang violence as their reason to be granted asylum.
