Last Day to Comment on Rule Tightening the Bars to Asylum Eligibility
It is the last day to comment on the new rule: Procedures for Asylum and Bars to Asylum Eligibility. Comments close at 11:59AM EST. Sample comment: I support the proposed regulation. People who request asylum are guests in our country and they ought to appreciate what we have given them. People who flagrantly violate our laws and endanger U.S. citizens have no right to claim entry into our country. While I feel sorry for people who face persecution in their homeland, if they wish for us to protect them they need to respect our laws and avoid putting our citizens at risk. Moreover, people who have previous immigration offenses are unlikely to be making the claim of asylum genuinely and are simply looking to loophole their way into the United States. Anything else is allowing the safety and well-being of foreigners to be prioritized over that of Americans. That is all.
