Attorney General Jeff Sessions Says Domestic and Gang Violence Are Not Grounds for Asylum

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the White House is overturning protections for those seeking asylum from gang and domestic violence.

After this change from the Department of Justice victims of violence can now only qualify for asylum if they can prove their native country will not protect them from additional danger.

FOX 7 Austin’s Mike Warren and Rebecca Thomas talked to Immigration Attorney, Chito Vela about the new changes to asylum policies.
