    New border plan: Migrants get 15 days to prove asylum claim — or leave

    Frustrated with the nonstop surge of illegal immigrants pouring over the U.S.-Mexico border, a new and bipartisan solution has emerged to give migrant families 15 days to prove they deserve asylum or be sent home.


    Called “Operation Safe Return” and proposed by the influential Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, it would provide migrants with legal and medical attention, translators, and multiple hearings with officials to prove they had “credible fear” of returning home, the key to winning asylum.

    But if they are denied credible fear by a judge the migrants would be sent home.


    The program, which immigrants would enroll in, would not require any new laws or rules and would allow for a shift of funds to impacted areas on the border. Those with convictions or other legal troubles would not be eligible for Operation Safe Return.

    “Aren’t you sick of this,” said the author of the plan, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate panel, at a Wednesday immigration roundtable. “Let’s start to do something.”


    A goal of the program would be to speed up asylum considerations and limit the freeing of illegal immigrants who are not eligible for asylum. A committee official said, “It’s important to address the current incentives to make the treacherous journey and come here that are resulting in an overwhelmed system.”


    Johnson sent his proposal (shown below) to the White House, Justice Department, and Homeland Security Department Thursday morning.


    In the letter, signed by Republicans and Democrats, the committee said, “We have worked with your agencies to develop a streamlined process to rapidly, accurately, and fairly determine those family units that do not have a valid legal claim and safely return those individuals to their home countries. The process would use existing authorities, but surge necessary resources to a limited, particular location on the southern border.”


    The letter said the border is in a much worse crisis than when President Barack Obama in 2014 called the situation he encountered a “humanitarian crisis.” The numbers, said the letter, prove that true: In 2014, 137,000 families and unaccompanied children were apprehended at the border compared to 389,000 caught in the first eight months of fiscal year 2019.


    The key features and timeline of Operation Safe Return:


    • Within 1-3 days, families would receive a U.S Border Patrol interview. Those who do not claim credible fear would be deported.
    • Those who do claim fear of returning home would get a second interview within the next two days. Translators would be provided.
    • Over their first 4 days in the U.S., all would receive a medical exam and be provided "fair access" to attorneys.
    • Within 9 days, asylum officers would conduct an interview.
    • Within 1 day of that interview, the officer’s determination will be sent to DOJ and homeland security.
    • Over the next 2-4 days officials would judge the case.
    • Within a total of 15 days, homeland security would remove family units “whose negative credible fear determinations are affirmed by the immigration judge.”
    • Those found to have a credible fear of returning will be steered to file an asylum claim.


    Changing the asylum system has been a focus of the administration which this week instituted rules requiring asylum seekers to ask for it in the first country they pass through. Many illegal immigrants pass through Mexico first.


    The availability of asylum is considered a strong “pull factor” that attracts illegal immigrants to the United States.

    Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution." ... Rendering true victims of persecution to their persecutor is a violation of a principle called non-refoulement, part of the customary and trucial Law of Nations.

    Right of asylum - Wikipedia


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_of_asylum

    ================================

    Right of asylum

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    The Egyptians, Greeks, and Hebrews recognized a religious "right of asylum", protecting criminals (or those accused of crime) from legal action to some extent. This principle was later adopted by the established Christian church, and various rules were developed that detailed how to qualify for protection and what degree of protection one would receive.[3]

    The Council of Orleans decided in 511, in the presence of Clovis I, that asylum could be granted to anyone who took refuge in a church or on church property, or at the home of a bishop. This protection was extended to murderers, thieves and adulterersalike.


    That "Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution" is enshrined in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 and supported by the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees.[4]

    Under these agreements, a refugee is a person who is outside that person's own country's territory owing to fear of persecution on protected grounds, including race, caste, nationality, religion, political opinions and participation in any particular social group or social activities.


    United States[edit]


    The United States recognizes the right of asylum of individuals as specified by international and federal law.

    A specified number of legally defined refugees who apply for refugee status overseas, as well as those applying for asylum after arriving in the U.S., are admitted annually.


    Main article: Asylum in the United States

    Since World War II, more refugees have found homes in the U.S. than any other nation and more than two million refugees have arrived in the U.S. since 1980.

    During much of the 1990s, the United States accepted over 100,000 refugees per year, though this figure has recently decreased to around 50,000 per year in the first decade of the 21st century, due to greater security concerns. As for asylum seekers, the latest statistics show that 86,400 persons sought sanctuary in the United States in 2001.[19] Before the September 11 attacks individual asylum applicants were evaluated in private proceedings at the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS).


    Despite this, concerns have been raised with the U.S. asylum and refugee determination processes. A recent empirical analysis by three legal scholars described the U.S. asylum process as a game of refugee roulette; that is to say that the outcome of asylum determinations depends in large part on the personality of the particular adjudicator to whom an application is randomly assigned, rather than on the merits of the case. The very low numbers of Iraqi refugees accepted between 2003 and 2007 exemplifies concerns about the United States' refugee processes. The Foreign Policy Association reported that:[20]

    Perhaps the most perplexing component of the Iraq refugee crisis... has been the inability for the U.S. to absorb more Iraqis following the 2003 invasion of the country. To date, the U.S. has granted less than 800 Iraqis refugee status, just 133 in 2007. By contrast, the U.S. granted asylum to more than 100,000 Vietnamese refugees during the Vietnam War.
