Default ACLU sues Trump administration for denying asylum to those fleeing domestic and gang

And they will win


https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...iolence-766101


Quote:
The American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday filed a federal lawsuit against the Trump administration over its decision to remove asylum protections for victims of domestic and gang violence.

The ACLU is arguing against “expedited removal” policies, put forth by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, that it says “generally” deny claims of violence of that nature.

“This is a naked attempt by the Trump administration to eviscerate our country’s asylum protections,” Jennifer Chang Newell, managing attorney with the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said in a statement. “It’s clear the administration’s goal is to deny and deport as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.”
Quote:
The lawsuit, Grace v. Sessions, was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in conjunction with the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.
I pray our Constitution can withstand the assault by this administration.

Failure to uphold our laws, and some people don't even blink. Upholding our laws, and those same people throw a conniption.

I'm not seeing an 'assault' on our Constitution.

That's because your an independent thinker evaluating facts instead of repeating talking points based on stupidity.

You mean after the last administration weaponized the IRS, DOJ and FBI to take down political opponents. That was OK, right?

Absolutely. Asylum is outlined in our law.

Indeed asylum or refugee status is established by law with defined criteria.

Quote:
Asylum has three basic requirements. First, an asylum applicant must establish that he or she fears persecution in their home country.[4] Second, the applicant must prove that he or she would be persecuted on account of one of five protected grounds: race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or particular social group. Third, an applicant must establish that the government is either involved in the persecution, or unable to control the conduct of private actors.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asyl..._United_States

Fear of criminal gangs doesn't fit any of the 5 criteria for asylum status. The central American gangs like MS 13 are equal opportunity exploiters of victims.

As for the government's failure to eradicate to eradicate gangs being a basis for asylum. Violent gangs operate in many countries including the US. Fear of gang violence doesn't mean the civil government cannot control domestic gangs.

The open borders Left wants to use the judiciary to override immigration law again.

Exactly where did I say, or anyone else for that matter, that it wasn't? But there are requirements to be met for asylum status, and sneaking in the backdoor of the country isn't one of them., and THEN declaring it... talk about a two step when caught.

For those who present themselves properly, then by all means, be reviewed and if found covered under asylum standards, be welcomed into this country.

Those are few and far between.

They should be suing the Obama administration for allowing gang members to come here and thrive thus threatening the civil liberties of all Americans and our foreign "guests."

BTW, Is there even legislation, or much less, a Constitutional mandate requiring the extension of asylum to anyone?
