Rules for asylum seeker interviews change suddenly
Very recently USCIS has changed the rules as to how it will schedule asylum seekers for interviews, to more or less a LIFO process. Usually the most recent asylum applications are heard first, now.
That could matter for LGBT asylum seekers with longstanding applications.
DC Center Global has a long piece on the issue. There article would not expand properly in Facebook, but when I reposted it to my timeline, it did, so here is the link.
Please bear in mind that as I add more entries to the timeline, the CG piece will be pushed farther down. As soon as I have a more stable URL I’ll update this post and put it here.
See also my International Issues blog today for more links of a general nature.
