Summary

An immigrant family crosses the border into El Paso, Texas, in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.The Justice Department on Wednesday threw out a decision by former attorney general Jeff Sessions that made it virtually impossible for immigrants to win asylum because they were fleeing domestic violence in their home countries.The decision was celebrated by immigrant advocates and attorneys across the US, who had often lamented the extremely limited access to asylum that Sessions had instituted through the case.In order to win asylum, immigrants have to prove they've suffered or fear suffering persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. The administration tried to close the door on asylum claims involving domestic violence and fear of gangs, in addition to precluding claims based on persecution due to family membership, she said.“The vacating of these decisions allows these cases to be treated like any other — fairly and without bias or prejudgment,” Musalo said.Some immigration judges also hailed the move to vacate Matter of A-B-."An important step to correct a clearly flawed interpretation of our asylum law," one immigration judge, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told BuzzFeed News.
