On 10/3/2008, President Bush signed into law the Child Soldiers Accountability Act of 2008 (PL 110-340).
The Child Soldiers Accountability Act amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to render any alien who has recruited or used child soldiers inadmissible or deportable.
It also directs the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security to promulgate final regulations to deny asylum or withholding of removal to aliens who are either inadmissible to the United States or deportable for recruiting or using child soldiers.
