Procedures for Credible Fear Screening and Consideration of Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and CAT Protection Claims by Asylum Officers
Document Number: 2021-17779
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-08-20
Agency: Executive Office for Immigration Review, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security
The Department of Justice (``DOJ'') and the Department of Homeland Security (``DHS'') (collectively, ``the Departments'') are proposing to amend the regulations governing the determination of certain protection claims raised by individuals subject to expedited removal and found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture. Under the proposed rule, such individuals could have their claims for asylum, withholding of removal under section 241(b)(3) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (``INA'' or ``the Act'') (``statutory withholding of removal''), or protection under the regulations issued pursuant to the legislation implementing U.S. obligations under Article 3 of the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (``CAT'') initially adjudicated by an asylum officer within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (``USCIS''). Such individuals who are granted relief by the asylum officer would be entitled to asylum, withholding of removal, or protection under CAT, as appropriate. Such individuals who are denied protection would be able to seek prompt, de novo review with an immigration judge (``IJ'') in the DOJ Executive Office for Immigration Review (``EOIR''), with appeal available to the Board of Immigration Appeals (``BIA''). These changes are intended to improve the Departments' ability to consider the asylum claims of individuals encountered at or near the border more promptly while ensuring fundamental fairness. In addition, among other changes to the asylum process, the Departments are proposing to return to the regulatory framework governing the credible fear screening process in place before various regulatory changes made from the end of 2018 through the end of 2020, so as to apply once more the longstanding ``significant possibility'' screening standard to all protection claims, but not to apply the mandatory bars to asylum and withholding of removal (with limited exception) at this initial screening stage.

Document Number: 2021-17187
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-08-12
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a temporary moving safety zone around M/V ZHEN HUA 24 during its transit through certain waters of the Chesapeake Bay and Coastal Virginia. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters during the movement of the M/V ZHEN HUA 24 while it is transporting four new Super-Post Panamax container cranes to the Port of Baltimore, anticipated to arrive between September 4, 2021, and September 29, 2021. The Captain of the Port Virginia has determined that limited maneuverability and unique cargo of this vessel are potential hazardous to any person or vessel within the proposed safety zone. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from being in the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Virginia or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
