The media learned about a new Directive on asylum in the United States


The new Directive of the Ministry of internal security of the United States prescribes “to raise the level of the initial selection” for persons who have requested asylum. The document reviewed by Reuters. He had not yet circulated, said the Agency.

Immigration officers must, under the Directive, to conduct in-depth interviews with refugees and carefully to find out whether the applicants have good reasons for requesting asylum.

The document obliges immigration officers “to elicit all necessary information” to ascertain that the applicant has good reason to fear for their safety at home.

Thus, notes Agency, in the document there is no clear criterion that can be considered such grounds.
