Court opens door for gu­atemalan asy­lum

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

SAN FRAN­CISCO — A fed­eral ap­peals court rul­ing cre­ated the pos­si­bil­ity that Gu­atemalan women could qual­ify for po­lit­i­cal asy­lum in the U.S. be­cause of the high fe­male murder rate in the Cen­tral Amer­i­can coun­try. The 9th U.S. Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals is­sued a strongly worded rul­ing re­vers­ing the de­por­ta­tion or­ders of two im­mi­gra­tion courts that said such a claim ap­plies too broadly.
