WRC’s Comment on Proposed Rulemaking on Security Bars and Processing for Asylum Applicants

The Women’s Refugee Commission submitted a comment on August 10, 2020, in opposition of the joint notice of proposed rulemaking issued by the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice on July 9, 2020, entitled “Security Bars and Processing.” This proposed rule would impose unprecedented new barriers to applicants seeking asylum, withholding of removal, or protection under the Convention Against Torture in the United States based on their fear of persecution in their home country.
