ABSTRACT

Processing of Adults and Family Units Arriving at the Southern Border Without Valid Documents [January 14, 2020] [infographic]   [open pdf - 627KB]

From the Document: "The Trump Administration has implemented a series of policies that change the processing of non-U.S. nationals (aliens) who arrive at the southern border without valid entry documents, many of whom claim asylum or a fear of persecution. These policies include metering, the Migrant Protection Protocols, an interim final rule that makes aliens ineligible for asylum if they reach the southern border through third countries (with limited exceptions), and safe third country agreements with Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador (these agreements are at varying stages of implementation). These policies generally apply to adults and family unites only. (The interim final rule, however, also applies to unaccompanied alien children in formal removal proceedings.)"
