State Dept. wants social media details from all visa applicants

Each year, approximately 15 million people apply for U.S. visas. The State Department has just announced that it will require every one of them to provide their social media user names, past email addresses and previous phone numbers with their application. Previously, the information had only been required from people who had been selected for additional scrutiny.

Sessions seeks to reduce 'rampant fraud and abuse' in asylum

The immigration courts work somewhat differently from other courts in the U.S. Rather than being independent and staffed by judges who base their authority on a constitutional mandate, they are considered part of the Department of Justice and are staffed by administrative law judges. That means that the head of the DOJ -- Attorney General Jeff Sessions -- has a certain amount authority over immigration judges.
