NIPNLG, SPLC et al., Apr. 27, 2022 - Systemic Deficiencies at the Houston Asylum Office in Assessments of Credible and Reasonable Fear Cause Harm and Irreversible Damage to Asylum Seekers
"We, the undersigned organizations, jointly file this complaint to request an investigation into the severe violations of due process and statutory obligations in the conduct of credible fear interviews (CFIs) and Reasonable Fear Interviews (RFIs) by representatives of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). While many of the issues we raise have occurred in numerous asylum offices, the Houston Asylum Office has a particularly egregious record of conducting these screenings and we therefore ask that you investigate the Houston Asylum Office’s conduct."
