US, El Salvador sign asylum deal, details to be worked out

NEW YORK (AP) — The United States on Friday signed an agreement that paves the way for the U.S. to send some asylum-seekers to one of the world’s most violent countries, El Salvador.

But both countries must first take necessary legal actions and implement major border security and asylum procedures before it would take place, according to a draft copy of the agreement obtained by The Associated Press.
