New Asylum Amendment Passes

 

The House Appropriations Committee voted on Wednesday to allow victims of gang violence and domestic abuse to enter the US under new asylum rules.

In June, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a decision to stop granting asylum for such claimants. On Wednesday House Republicans overturned this.

The amendment passed on a voice vote.
