Department of Homeland Security Finds that Domestic Violence Constitutes Sufficient Grounds for Asylum

Rate this Entry
The New York Times has reported that the Department of Homeland Security, in a one-paragraph document, has determined that spousal abuse is a sufficient ground for asylum eligibility.

Department of Homeland Security spokesman Matthew Chandler has stated that the Department "continues to view domestic violence as a possible basis for asylum".  Mr. Chandler further advised that the Department is in the process of writing regulations to govern asylum claims based on domestic violence.

Score one for the little guy.
