Harder For Women and Kids to get Asylum

CNN Trump admin drops asylum protections for domestic violence victims

VOX Jeff Sessions has all but slammed the door on survivors of domestic and gang violence
"Asylum: protection from arrest and extradition given especially to political refugees by a nation or by an embassy or other agency enjoying freedom from what is required by law for most people ." Merriam Webster
Though it seems cold, I guess it kind of makes sense. I mean:
  • How would a person prove their life was at risk?
  • Do we really want to accept everyone who has a hard life in another country?
  • Wasn't asylum more specifically defined before?
