Comment on Security Bars and Processing Regulation

August 5, 2020

The American Immigration Council and the American Immigration Lawyers Association submitted a comment opposing the regulation "Security Bars and Processing." 

The regulation would ban asylum and end withholding of removal (an alternative form of relief for an individual fearing persecution in their country of origin) for anyone who passed through a country where there was a COVID-19 outbreak.

The comment explains how this violates America's responsibility to avoid deporting people to places where they will be persecuted and is in violation of domestic and international law.
