Abstract/Citation: Streamlines the adjudication of asylum applications submitted to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). Asylum officers who adjudicate the applications of persons who have no legal immigration status will no longer prepare detailed denials. Instead, in almost all cases, asylum officers will grant meritorious applications and refer applications that they do not grant to immigration judges, who will adjudicate the claims in either exclusion or deportation proceedings. The rule restricts employment authorization to applicants for asylum or withholding of deportation whose claims either have been granted or remain pending after more than 150 days, a period which would not run until the alien has filed a complete application and which would not include delays sought or caused by the applicant.
