Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 204 / Wednesday, October 21, 2020
"On December 19, 2019, the Department of Justice (‘‘DOJ’’) and the Department of Homeland Security (‘‘DHS’’) (collectively, ‘‘the Departments’’) published a notice of proposed rulemaking (‘‘NPRM’’) that would amend their respective regulations governing the bars to asylum eligibility. The Departments also proposed to clarify the effect of criminal convictions and to remove their respective regulations governing the automatic reconsideration of discretionary denials of asylum applications. This final rule (‘‘final rule’’ or ‘‘rule’’) responds to comments received and adopts the provisions of the NPRM with technical corrections to ensure clarity and internal consistency. DATES: This rule is effective on November 20, 2020."
