Barr Eliminates a Commonly Faked Claim for Asylum, That One Is Being "Harassed by Gangs"

Pretty much anyone could say this and there's never any evidence for it -- so the government would have trouble disproving it, even if anyone was trying to disprove it.

This is simply not "political persecution," even if genuine.

Attorney General William Barr ruled Monday that being a member of a family harassed by gangs is not enough to qualify for asylum.

In a ruling that will likely block a large number of immigrants from lodging successful asylum claims moving forward, Barr overturned a previous decision made by Board of Immigration Appeals, which found that being a member of family targeted by gangs or other criminal organizations could qualify them as a “particular social group” worthy of U.S. asylum.

Here's something for a laugh -- the "Party Bros" on Howard Stern.

You probably remember this pair -- they appeared before the San Clemente City Council a couple of years back to fight for their right to party.

And they've been appearing in front of a lot of city councils since then.

And if you like those, check out their heroic efforts to unite the country through the erection of a properly-gigantic statue of departed Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker.

These guys are brilliant at adding in specific details and specific names that are very funny in context.
