Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended his decision to overturn asylum protections for domestic violence and gang violence victims, saying the Trump administration will return to the “classical” and “legitimate” definition of asylum.

“We are really returning to the classical understanding of what asylum is,”

Sessions’ asylum decision this week reverses a push by the Obama administration to provide asylum to women with credible claims of domestic violence.
