Does the U.S. Asylum System Need to Change?

Discussion

Right now, thousands of migrants seeking asylum are being detained along the U.S./ Mexico border. Many are seeking refuge from severe gang violence in Central America. Migrants can apply for asylum if they are from persecuted groups drawn by lines of race, nationality, religion and some social groups, but not if they fear gang violence. Should the asylum system change?
