!!! For Remain in Mexico, @USCIS is creating a NEW type of interview: an MPP assessment.

This looks like a reasonable fear interview, with one key difference: the officer assesses whether or not the asylum seeker is barred from ultimately receiving asylum or withholding...
Those bars (pictured below), are difficult to assess during a full adjudication in court. But for migrants subject to MPP, they'll have to argue them w/in days or hours of first asking for asylum, & they CANNOT have an attorney present.

Raising some obvious due process concerns.

Giant h/t to @ReichlinMelnick
EDIT: I was wrong to write that the interview will be "like" a reasonable fear interview, because the "more likely than not" standard is actually MUCH harder.

So again, the MPP assessment is a new beast, in a league of its own.
