This "final interim rule" skips usual due process and goes into effect NOW, because #MigrantCaravan
"PROCLAMATION-BASED INELIGIBILITY FOR #ASYLUM"
Proclamation. Based. Ineligibility.
This is horrific precedent.
Absolutely NOT what 212(f) is for.
If the govt determines the person in front of them entered illegally & was part of "THE CARAVAN," they will be subjected to a much tougher "reasonable fear" interview. This is a higher standard than usual screening. Sessions was pushing to make it even harder.
This arbitrarily applies that to certain first-time asylum seekers. BUT THEY ENTERED ILLEGALLY, you say. Eh.
