Under a decision by the DOJ’s board of immigration appeals, a Guatemalan woman need only claim to be the victim of domestic violence and she will be awarded asylum in the United States.
But the unbelievable news doesn’t stop there. For border-crashers there is another, even sweeter reward for their adventure to the land of free everything and lawless government. Their children are granted American citizenship as well as inclusion in federal health, education and retirement programs.
Windword, it is a shame that their own police can't do anything about it. What the hell do they have police for, if not to look after their people? Man!

Hasn't this been around for awhile now? I thought Bush signed an executive order when he was in office that women and children in domestic abuse situations and human trafficking could seek asylum in the U.S.? I don't understand why people keep talking about this like it's some new thing.

This is ridiculous!!! So now they will all claim this and get to come love their dream!
As someone who was a victim of domestic violence as a citizen this pisses me off. I was laughed at and let's just say treated like I was the one in the wrong!
Sorry if you want to come here do so legally!! I have no problem with immigration it's the illegal immigration I have issues with. I could go on about this forever because where I live it's a problem. I have had illegals harass me and steal from my porch. I did get the last laugh when the house they lived in was raided and they were hauled off in cuffs!
This country needs to first and foremost help their own citizens FIRST! I guess it's better on the outside looking in when you help the poor Guatamalan woman than your own people.

Regardless of which Arab country you are from, you always get positive Asylum in Germany or the Netherlands if you tell the authorities that you are gay. As a gay from Arab countries it's too easy and they don't even test it.
