U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requested public input in April 2022 on specific processes, programs, regulations, collections of information, and policies for the agency to consider modifying, streamlining, expanding, or repealing in light of recent executive orders. Specifically, CBP stated in its request for input that it aims to ensure that its policies align with Executive Orders 13985, 13990, and 14008, which call on federal agencies to advance equity for all, including those in underserved communities; protect public health and the environment and restore science to tackle the climate crisis; and bolster resilience from the effects of climate change, particularly for those disproportionately affected by climate change.

In its response, NIPNLG focuses on two issues that CBP must systematically and urgently address-language access for persons with limited English proficiency and asylum access and safety for all at the border.
