Establishment Republicans Sell Us Down the River...

•, by Chris Menahan

Two asylum rules pushed by Rep. David Price (D-NC) as well as Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) and approved by the GOP-majority House Appropriations Committee would allow foreign nationals seeking refuge in the U.S. to migrate based on claims that they are fleeing domestic abuse or gang violence.

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.
