  5. Tom Jawetz:

    When Congress in 1996 enacted sweeping immigration enforcement legislation — putting in place the expedited removal system that today allows Border Patrol agents to quickly deport people Border Patrol agents apprehend without any court process — it specifically created the credible fear process to preserve the right of people to seek asylum when they are apprehended between the ports of entry, congress did that knowing that if it circumscribed the right to seek protection, then it would run afoul of our obligations under Tom Jawetz and international law to not return people to face persecution abroad. The interim final rule issued today acknowledges this history even as it attempts to undo it entirely.
