Sessions excludes domestic, gang violence from asylum claims

There are 40 comments on the KFMB-am story from Jun 12, 2018, titled Sessions excludes domestic, gang violence from asylum claims. In it, KFMB-am reports that:

Immigration judges generally cannot consider domestic and gang violence as grounds for asylum, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday in a ruling that could affect large numbers of Central Americans who have increasingly turned to the United States for protection. "Generally, claims by aliens pertaining to domestic violence or gang violence perpetrated by non-government actors will not qualify for asylum," Sessions wrote in 31-page decision.

Seems Sessions is using the dark side of his heart to get on the favorable side of Trump.

I just love it when the liberals choose favoring crime just to disagree with us. Landslide for Trump coming up.

Why do right wing creeps like Sessions love to go out of their way to be cruel to people?

Why do left wing people have such a difficult time with obeying the law? Just because one President asked that a new, less restrictive requirement be put into place does not prevent another President from going back to the original requirements. If you want to weaken the requirements elect a weaker President.

Or maybe a mentally intact president.

The law uber alles, eh? Some laws have been proven unjust. There was once a law forcing racial segregation. Would you have respected that one? Don't answer that.

There is nothing unjust about requiring the people you permit to enter the country have some semblance of being free of criminal activity. We have become the world's mental health clinic. We don't need any more mental cases. We have enough of our own.

Not sure what you are talking about. It is my understanding that Sessions wants to ban asylum seekers whose lives are being threatened by gang violence.
Where do you get the idea that these are criminals?

Before this new ruling we took in everyone. How do you know if people are in fear of their lives, or looking for a free ride? You cannot let people stay in America just because they are still breathing. That is how we got thousands of gang members now terrorizing our people.

With proper screening, that problem would barely exist.

I'm afraid my concerns about Sessions and most of right wing leadership are true. There just appears to be a lack of conscience in these people. They seem to go out of their way to brutalize others. And all this is celebrated and encouraged by the so-called president.

I just hope Trump supporters will come to their senses, and awaken their better natures.

I thought gangs only fought amongst other gangs. At least that's what the liberals claim about Chicago. No innocent victims involved in the weekly gang violence and death. Go figure.

How will you screen these people. If they will try to enter another country by lying about their problems, they are not the kind of people American needs. Women lie about abuse all the time. These women know if we let them in, later they can bring their whole useless family.
