They have found another way to keep from being deported, just claim they are victims of domestic violence in their home country and they will get to stay in America.

"Mirna said her 17-year-old daughter, who came to the United States with her, also suffered physical abuse. One time, her husband grabbed the girl by the hair and pushed her face into a pot of beans."

For them it works out better then amnesty as they immediately qualify for all welfare benefits.
Holder made this ruling back in early August.

Asylum? How about locking up the "victims" in low security places till their cases are heard? Def DON'T let them run free on the streets. Sheesh!

And how is anyone going to prove that they are indeed victims of domestic violence? Given the countries they come from, I'm sure that there are no police reports to back up their claims.

Word will quickly get out that all a woman has to do is make up a story about how she was abused and voila! She gets to stay here.

What is galling is that there are women who are truly victims of domestic abuse in this country who have trouble getting away from it and getting their lives in order. There are not enough shelters for them and what shelters there are tend to be filled with capacity.

Our citizens come first.

It's the same as those Central Americans who crashed our borders. They knew if they claimed that their lives were in jeopardy in their homelands that we would take them in. Our government needs to stop encouraging fraud to gain entrance into our country.

Domestic violence now grounds for asylum

This law has been in place for years and was just renewed in the last year. This law is anti male and has put more American men in jail on accusations of domestic violence ever. All the immigrant has to do is claim the man hit her or somehow abused her and she is clear for a green card and path to citizenship. The law is called VAWA and was introduced by Joe Biden.

It ruins the lives of men that marry women from certain countries that are advised from their groups to file charges in order to gain a faster way to green card status.

Not to say there is no domestic violence, only this law doesn't work on proof.

Yep no proof and now I hear these creative ways to gain access I do not believe these stories.

Verify Visa and doc
Speed trial
Deport in 72 hours
back charge the country of origin or deduct from any foreign asst.

It's just another phoney way to gain entrance into our country. The same thing goes for these so-called refugees. I would be willing to bet that the majority of the claims of spousal abuse or one's life being in danger due to violence in their own country are bogus.
