US, El Salvador Sign Asylum Deal, Details to Be Worked Out

Epoch Times: NEW YORK—The United States on Friday, Sept. 20, signed an agreement that paves the way for the U.S. to send some asylum-seekers to one of the world’s most violent countries, El Salvador.

However, both countries must first take necessary legal actions and implement significant border security and asylum procedures before it would take place, according to a draft copy of the agreement obtained by The Associated Press.

  1. Could they tell us any more about how violent El Salvador is? — the implication that the US is bad for sending people there.

    I thought it was racist to say that these countries were anything but heaven on earth.

  2. To those considering a move to America:

    Fill out the required forms and mail them to the United States Dept of Immigration and Naturalization Services.
    Your REQUEST for admittance will be considered in the order received.
    Stay home until your application is approved.
    Please note the current backlog is approximately one million cases.

    So don’t hold your breath.
