Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

CERTAIN ASYLUM APPLICANTS WILL NO LONGER BE DETAINED

Rate this Entry

The AP is reporting that the White House will alter their policies and will stop detaining asylum seekers who have a credible fear of persecution in their home countries. Applicants who pass a credible fear screening and can prove their identities will be released in the US. Applicants will still spend time in detention at the outset when they undergo interviews and their backgrounds are checked. But this is a major, major change and brings us closer to being in sync with international standards applicable to asylum petitions.

People already in detention will be able to benefit from the new policy.

    All have to say about this.....the cuban asylum policy all you have to do is make it to land and proof that your are cuban, after that the gates open, you get a green card and your life improves 10 fold in no time!!! I got to give it to them they have it made. Glad to hear that some other people will have a shot too.
