  • ASYLUM CRACKDOWN: Sessions Moves to ‘BLOCK’ Asylum Seekers from Entering US

The woman could still potentially appeal the case again to the Board of Immigration Appeals, then a federal appeals court and ultimately the U.S. Supreme Court. Gilman expects the decision will ultimately be reversed, but until then, she believes it makes a clear statement that the US does not want asylum seekers to come into the country, while putting vulnerable people in potentially deadly situations. "In my judgment, this is a correct interpretation of the law".

In the law's current interpretation, foreign nationals can apply for US 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. "It will help you to rule more consistently and fairly", Sessions said, The Hill reported.

"The mere fact that a country may have problems effectively policing certain crimes - such as domestic violence or gang violence - or that certain populations are more likely to be victims of crime, can not itself establish an asylum claim".

Monday's decision marks Sessions' latest effort to greatly restrict immigration.

Michelle Brané, director of the Women's Refugee Commission's Migrant Rights and Justice program, said in a statement: "Women and children will die as a result of these policies".

"While I do not decide that violence inflicted by non-governmental actors may never serve as the basis for an asylum or withholding application based on membership in a particular social group, in practice such claims are unlikely to satisfy the statutory grounds for proving group persecution that the government is unable or unwilling to address", Sessions added.

The attorney general did not reveal the specifics of the changes to the law. "Turning our backs on victims of violence and deporting them to grave danger should not be the legacy sought by any administration".

And immigration courts overall face a backlog of about 700,000 cases of all types. Such criminal prosecutions mean separating parents from their children. The woman said her ex-husband had raped her, and his brother, a police officer, had also threatened her.

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. Some said the decision could have wide-ranging impacts on immigrants fleeing gang violence and gender-based violence, including female genital cutting or honor killings.

The case is one of severalSessions has assigned to himself since becoming attorney general. Sessions´ decision followed his unusual move to personally intervene in the case, known as the "Matter of A-B-".

Steve Vladeck, a University of Texas law professor, said a key point in Sessions' ruling was that applicants needed to demonstrate that "the government condoned the private actions or demonstrated an inability to protect the victim".
