As if Jeff Session was a principled man! HAH!
Nah. He's got a tingle up his leg for private prisons and wet dream fantasies over seizing migrant children and imprisoning those trespassing asylum seekering parents of theirs!
GTFO with the weasel terminology. Everyone seeking what is from their perspective a welfare utopia isnt seeking "asylum".
An ICE spokeswoman told Reuters five federal prisons will temporarily take in detainees awaiting civil immigration court hearings, including potential asylum seekers, with one prison in Victorville, California, preparing to house 1,000 people.
A new agreement between ICE and the Justice Department makes about 1,600 prison beds available and is expected to last 120 days, giving ICE time to secure more space for detainees. It comes amid a crackdown by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on both illegal border crossings and people seeking asylum.
To obtain asylum through the affirmative asylum process you must be physically present in the United States. You may apply for asylum status regardless of how you arrived in the United States or your current immigration status.
A defensive application for asylum occurs when you request asylum as a defense against removal from the U.S. For asylum processing to be defensive, you must be in removal proceedings in immigration court with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).
A couple articles using the word doesnt legitimize it.
Neither does some details about the process itself determine who is or is not a "refugee".
