DHS Issues Proposed Rule to Speed Up Asylum Screening for Migrants Viewed as National Security or Public Safety Risk

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a proposed rule that aims to speed up asylum processing at the southern border. The proposed rule addresses the stage at which migrants can be found ineligible to apply for and receive asylum. Under the current system, eligibility is determined based on a number of factors during the asylum interview stage. In the proposed rule, DHS seeks to apply these standards during the initial screening stage, which would effectively allow the U.S. to expedite the removal of migrants whom officials see as potentially ineligible to stay in the country due to national security or public safety risks.
