  • Tahirih Comments on Tip Form

    The Tahirih Justice Center submitted comments in opposition to the proposed new Form G-1530. The new proposed “tip” form will allow individuals to report claims of immigration benefit fraud anonymously, which will embolden violence abusers and make it easier for them to carry out their threats.

  • Tahirih Comments on Rule Expanding Definition of “Public Charge”

    The Tahirih Justice Center filed comments in opposition of the new proposed rule by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds, which will expand the definition of “public charge”. Tahirih is deeply concerned about the impact of the rule on families, and the possibility that it will discourage survivors from accessing critical, life-saving services.

    The Tahirih Justice Center submitted comments opposing the new rule, Aliens Subject to a Bar on Entry under Certain Presidential Proclamations; Procedures for Protection Claims, which  bars refugees who enter the U.S. between Ports of Entry from claiming asylum. Tahirih urges the Department of Justice Executive Office of Immigration Review and the Department of Homeland Security to abandon the rule in favor if policies and practices that will ensure asylum seekers have a fair opportunity to seek safety in the U.S.

  • Tahirih Comments on Proposed Revisions to Fee Waiver Request Form

  • Tahirih Comments on Flores Regulation

    The Tahirih Justice Center submitted these comments to the Department of Homeland Security in response to the proposed rule relating to the apprehension, processing, care and custody of alien minors and unaccompanied alien children, which will allow the indefinite detention of immigration children. We advocate instead for policies and practices consistent with the Flores Settlement Agreement’s mandate to minimize detention for children, and maximize their health and safety when detention is deemed necessary.
