NIPNLG submitted a public comment strongly opposing a DHS proposed rule, which would allow asylum officers to apply complex bars at border fear screenings for the first time ever. These bars which may result from false criminal charges by persecutory governments, or mistaken identity on U.S. watchlists, would result in asylum seekers being removed at the border without ever having an opportunity to have the issues determined by a judge.
