Sessions expected to issue decision on U.S. asylum for domestic violence victims

Sessions expected to issue decision on U.S. asylum for domestic violence victimsBy Reade Levinson and Sarah N. Lynch FALLS CHURCH, Va. (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Monday he will issue a decision on asylum policies that will “restore the sound principles of asylum and longstanding principles of immigration law.” In a speech at the department’s Executive Office For Immigration Review, Sessions said immigrants were taking advantage of the asylum system “to the detriment of the rule of law,” and said his ruling will provide more clarity for immigration judges ruling on the validity of claims. Sessions did not elaborate on what decision he was referring to and a Justice Department spokesman did not provide any details. The head of the immigration judges union, however, told Reuters she believes Sessions is referring to a crucial case known as the “Matter of A-B-,” about a woman from El Salvador who is seeking asylum after she was raped and beaten by her ex-husband.
