LGBT asylum seekers traveling from Central American countries to the U.S. may have to “prove” their status in order to claim asylum in the U.S., said a University of California researcher. Earlier this month, around 80 LGBT members of the more than 6,000-strong caravan of Central American asylum seekers traveling to the U.S. split with the main group after facing discrimination from fellow travelers. The group of LGBT asylum seekers was among the first to arrive in Tijuana, the Mexican border town which sits across from San Diego. But they are likely to face a “unique set of challenges” in their bid to gain entry into the U.S., University of California researcher Stefan Vogler wrote in an article for The Conversation. One challenge may be having to demonstrate that they are part of a group facing persecution in the first place.
