Title: Procedures for Asylum and Withholding of Removal; Credible Fear and Reasonable Fear Review 
Abstract:

On June 15, 2020, the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security (collectively, "the Departments”) proposed to amend the regulations governing credible fear determinations so that individuals found to have such a fear will have their claims for asylum, withholding of removal under section 241(b)(3) of the Immigration and Nationality Act ("INA” or "the Act”) ("statutory withholding of removal”), or protection under the regulations issued pursuant to the legislation implementing the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment ("CAT”), adjudicated by an immigration judge within the Executive Office for Immigration Review ("EOIR”) in streamlined proceedings (rather than in proceedings under section 240 of the Act), and to specify what standard of review applies in such streamlined proceedings. The Departments further proposed changes to the regulations regarding asylum, statutory withholding of removal, and withholding and deferral of removal under the CAT regulations. The Departments also proposed amendments related to the standards for adjudication of applications for asylum and statutory withholding.
