What is Asylum? 9 Things the Bible Says You Should Do for Refugees
Definition of asylum A judge tears up the ICE playbook
1: an inviolable place of refuge and protection giving shelter to criminals and debtors : sanctuary

What are US Asylum Laws?
We have US Code:
(a)Authority to apply for asylum
Any alien who is physically present in the United States or who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in international or United States waters), irrespective of such alien’s status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section or, where applicable, section 1225(b) of this title.
The USCIS Website?
Affirmative Asylum Processing With USCIS
To obtain asylum through the affirmative asylum process you must be physically present in the United States. You may apply for asylum status regardless of how you arrived in the United States or your current immigration status.
You must apply for asylum within one year of the date of their last arrival in the United States, unless you can show:
Changed circumstances that materially affect your eligibility for asylum or extraordinary circumstances relating to the delay in filing
You filed within a reasonable amount of time given those circumstances.

No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Neither Obama or Bush broke this law. They never detained people seeking asylum. What the GOP is wrongly calling Catch-and-Release now. Fact check: Did the Obama administration separate families?
