Forwarding of Asylum Applications to the Department of State
Document Number: 2011-28117
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-10-31
Agency: Executive Office for Immigration Review, Department of Justice
The Department of Justice is planning to amend its regulations to alter the process by which the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) forwards asylum applications for consideration by the Department of State (DOS). Currently, EOIR forwards to DOS all asylum applications that are submitted initially in removal proceedings before an immigration judge. The proposed rule would amend the regulations to provide for sending asylum applications to DOS on a discretionary basis. For example, EOIR could forward an application in order to ascertain whether DOS has information relevant to the applicant's eligibility for asylum. This change would increase the efficiency of DOS's review of asylum applications and is consistent with similar changes already made by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

This rule also revised the remaining provisions in part 1274a to reference the applicable DHS regulations.
