U.S. citizens who suffer gang and domestic violence have nowwhere to seek asylum

In light of a judge blocking a policy by President Donald J. Trump that limits what immigrants can seek asylum, let's look the lack of services for Americans who suffer gang and domestic violence.

So a federal judge has blocked the Trump Administration's policies that prevented immigrants suffering from gang or domestic violence in their home countries from seeking asylum (“Judge blocks restrictions on who can apply for asylum,” Dec. 21).

I wonder if the good judge has any advice for American citizens who suffer from gang or domestic violence (that pretty much describes conditions for many citizens living in Baltimore) on how or where to seek asylum from the daily violence in their lives. Gang and domestic violence is a reality in all countries and should not be a reason for asylum to be granted.
