What You Need to Know About Credible Fear When Seeking Asylum
Now, more than ever, it is important to stay up to date and in the know about the changes and processes that are involved for the purpose of establishing credible fear when seeking asylum in the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has implemented a new rule that gives asylum seekers less time to amend, correct, and seek redetermination of their negative credible fear results when an Immigration Judge affirms the denial of their credible fear. DHS has explained that with this new rule, individuals who are found to be ineligible for asylum “will be promptly removed rather than remaining in the U.S. for years while their cases are pending.” Now, individuals will only have 7 days to complete the process for redetermination. Meaning, individuals will only have this amount of time to gather their evidence, find a way to effectively tell their story, and ask USCIS to take another look at their case so that they do not get removed from the United States.
