Frivolous Asylum Claims

USCIS has announced a rule to deter aliens from illegally entering the United States and from filing frivolous asylum applications in order to obtain employment authorization.

The proposed rule will better allow USCIS to extend protections to those with bona fide asylum claims. USCIS also seeks to prevent certain criminal aliens from obtaining work authorization before the merits of their asylum application are adjudicated.
