The Joe Biden government this Wednesday presented a reform of the management system for asylum applications, aimed at reducing significant delays by files processed across Mexico’s border. Can stay in the United States.
Under the scheme, ordinary asylum cases will no longer be referred automatically to the collapsed immigration system run by the Department of Justice, but will instead be overseen by the asylum authorities of the Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is part of the Department of the Interior.

Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
“People who meet the requirements will get help quickly, while not being evicted quickly,” National Defense Secretary Alejandro Myorgas declared.
Before the plan can be adopted as a new policy, a period of public opinion must pass.
The immigration court system experiences a historic delay of about 1.3 million cases. The government of former President Donald Trump imposed strict criteria for asylum and forced immigrants to seek protection in Mexico and Central America.
The reason for Biden’s change is that the number of asylum seekers under US law has increased in recent years, especially along the US-Mexico border.
As the system now operates, those who are spotted at the border or detained by border guards and identified as asylum seekers must pass a so-called credible fear interview. The USCIS Asylum Officer determines whether a person is being persecuted on the basis of race, religion, national origin, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion in their country.
Even if approved, your case will then be transferred to an immigration judge, and it may take several years to reach a settlement.
The theory behind the proposed change is that USCIS’s experienced asylum officers can quickly categorize cases. People who have been denied asylum can appeal and decide their case in immigration court. Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
The Department of Homeland Security plans to hire 1,000 asylum seekers and 1,000 support staff to cope with the additional workload that this change will bring.
Doris Meisner, former Commissioner of Immigration and Naturalization Services (before USCIS), was asked to accept the change, saying in a recent Immigration Policy Institutional Opinion that it would balance humanitarian security as a “possible game changer”. With the need to control the boundary.
“The increase in visits to the U.S.-Mexico border, which is the latest in a series of spikes, makes this change even more compelling,” wrote Meissner, now a friend at the company.
The percentage of asylum granted varies greatly depending on the country of birth and the circumstances of the person. Applicants from Honduras received 10% coverage, while the rate for immigrants from China was 37%, according to the latest figures from the Office of Immigration Review.
