32M Central Americans Would Have Right to Migrate to U.S. Under Asylum Plan by Dems, GOP

Weakened asylum rules being pushed by Democrats and the Republican establishment would allow the entire populations of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador the right to migrate to the United States.
House Republicans and Democrats pushed forward two amendments that would block Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ tightened asylum rules that raise the standards of so-called “credible fear” in the asylum process.
The rules block foreign nationals from seeking asylum by claiming they are fleeing gang violence and domestic abuse. Experts say those foreign nationals, primarily arriving in the U.S. illegally from Central America, should seek asylum in the first safe country, which is more often not the U.S.
Sessions’ memo also reasserts that unemployment, gang violence, domestic abuse, and lack of economic opportunity are not grounds for asylum in the U.S.
House Republicans and Democrats, though, want to reverse these cleaned up asylum rules by opening asylum to all foreign nationals who allege domestic violence and gang violence.
