Title: Credible Fear Reform 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will propose to amend regulatory provisions to streamline credible fear screening determinations. DHS plans to establish various measures, such as applying the mandatory bars to asylum eligibility to certain credible fear screening determinations, and removing provisions related to novel or unique issues that merit consideration in a full hearing before an immigration judge.
