DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AB79 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: New Asylum and Withholding Bars for Recruitment or Use of Child Soldiers 
Abstract: The Child Soldier Accountability Act of 2008 (CSAA) establishes a criminal offense for the recruitment or use of child soldiers, and also establishes grounds of inadmissibility and removability for aliens who have engaged in such recruitment or use. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ), therefore, are amending their companion immigration regulations to specify that aliens who are inadmissible or deportable for recruitment or use of child soldiers are considered ineligible for asylum and withholding of removal due to the serious nonpolitical crime bar.
