Three months ago, he re-opened Matter of A-B (named for the woman's initials) - which affirmed the asylum status of a woman from El Salvador who was the victim of domestic violence - to make his announcement, as the case went to the Board of Immigration Appeals.

The decision came hours after Sessions' latest criticism on the asylum system, which he and other administration officials consider rife with abuse.

Sessions declared that claims of domestic violence, or violence from criminal gangs that flourish across much of the region, do not meet the threshold for an asylum request at the U.S. border.

Alleged false claims of persecution back home usually made by 80 per cent of illegal USA border crossers who seek political asylum seem to have prompted a crackdown.

The attorney general noted the asylum system has been abused to the detriment of the rule of law, and is being flooded by invalid asylum claims.

The attorney general's ruling said it is still possible that crime victims could win asylum in the United States, but they would have to pass a tougher test in the courts, including showing that their home government is unable or unwilling to protect them, and that they cannot safely relocate to another part of their own country. Sessions reopened the case for his review in March.

Last year, the Trump administration used an executive order to put a travel ban in place, banning refugees from entering the US from certain countries.

The Los Angeles Times reported on Monday that attorney general Jeff Sessions had issued the directive to immigration judges.

Such a group can not be overly broad or diffuse, Sessions said, overruling a previous asylum decision which accepted married women who are victims of violent relationships as a persecuted group.

"Today's decision by the Attorney General is yet another attempt to close our doors, " Beth Werlin, executive director of the American Immigration Council. "It is nearly certain that women will be killed as a result of this decision that will return them to their abusers". In a speech earlier on Monday, Sessions told immigration officers that "asylum was never meant to alleviate all problems - even all serious problems - that people face every day all over the world".

Sessions says this action is necessary to maintain "the rule of law", which is a pretty clear indication that his idea of "the law" includes neither justice nor mercy.
