USCIS and EOIR notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) under which claims for asylum, statutory withholding of removal, and CAT protection raised by individuals subject to expedited removal and found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture would be initially adjudicated by a USCIS asylum officer. In addition, the government would return to the regulatory framework governing the credible fear screening process in place before various regulatory changes made from the end of 2018 through the end of 2020, so as to apply once more the longstanding “significant possibility” screening standard to all protection claims, but not to apply the mandatory bars to asylum and withholding of removal (with limited exception) at this initial screening stage. Comments are due 10/19/21. (86 FR 46906, 8/20/21)
