Noted, tweeted, shared, and signed. It would appear they would be able to be here because their lives were threatened and if they go back they will be killed.They should be given asylum.

Done. That's the situation in El Salvador and many other Central American countries. The gangs are very powerful and the police are actually either afraid of them or are on the take.
