Waiver for a sylum seekers

Thankfully, the Bush administration has finally realized that its policies associated with the REAL ID act and asylum seekers -- specifically the issue of "providing material support to terrorists" were inhumane. It trapped asylum seekers who were coerced into providing material support to terrorists as well as others who were actually fighting repressive regimes.
There is still a lot of concern among human rights activists over the logistics of the waiver, when it will be implemented, who will qualify etc., but right now, it certainly is a step in the right direction.
