Hundreds Of Thousands Of Filipino TNTs In America Apply For Political Asylum

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles. San Francisco Bureau) – Following a San Francisco  Immigration judge’s decision to grant political asylum to a Filipino couple who arrived in the U.S. for sight-seeing in 2000 and now claims persecution by President Rodrigo Duterte if they return to the Philippines, hundreds of thousands of undocumented Filipinos living in America have filed asylum  applications with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). For the same reason.

It is estimated that there are at least 300, 000 Filipino TNTs (Tago Ng Tago)   —those hiding from Immigration — in America today.

Obviously, President Donld Trump is not happy about this. Neither is President Duterte.
