Government notify asylum seekers - Atlanta Immigration lawyer | Best immigration attorneys Atlanta GA

Last Thursday, a federal court judge in Seattle ordered the government to notify asylum seekers that they are required by law to file their asylum applications within one year of their entry. They also need to implement a procedure that will ensure that applicants are able to file their asylum applications by the deadline.

Without any notice, too many asylum seekers do not learn about the one-year filing deadline until it is too late. This means they face deportation back to the country that they fled, without ever being able to present their asylum claim. For many asylum seekers who are aware of the requirement and seek to file a timely application, the government imposes additional hurdles that make meeting the deadline an impossibility.

The federal court’s decision will apply nationally to thousands of current and future asylum seekers. Specifically, the court has ordered the government to adopt a notice within 90 days explaining the one-year deadline. Going forward, the government must provide all individuals who enter the United States and express a fear of return to their home countries with written notice of the one-year deadline when they are released from custody.

The government must also recognize any asylum application received within one year of this new notice as filed in a timely manner. This gives asylum seekers who missed the one-year deadline because they were unaware of it will have another opportunity to file an asylum application.

Finally, the decision also requires that the government must adopt, publicize, and implement uniform procedures to ensure that these individuals are able to timely file their asylum applications within the next 120 days.

In reaching its decision, the court recognized the vulnerability of the asylum-seeking population—many have suffered severe trauma, do not speak English, are unfamiliar with the United States’ complicated immigration legal system, and do not have access to immigration attorneys.

El gobierno debe notificar a solicitantes de asilo del plazo para hacerlo

El jueves pasado, un juzgado federal en Seattle ordenó al gobierno a notificar a los solicitantes de asilo del plazo de un año desde su entrada en el país.

Sin esta información, muchas personas no saben este requisito hasta que es demasiado tarde. Como consecuencia, se enfrentan a la deportación al país del que huyeron, sin poder siquiera presentar su solicitud de asilo. Además, a muchas personas que lo hacen en el plazo solicitado, se les ponen trabas que hacen imposible presentar toda la documentación a tiempo.

La decisión aplicará en todo el país y se podrán beneficiar solicitantes de asilo. De forma específica, el juzgado ha ordenado que el gobierno adopte y les notifique en 90 días explicando el plazo. En adelante, el gobierno debe proveer documentación escrita explicando el plazo de un año a todos aquellos que entren en el país y expresen miedo de regresar a su país de origen.

El gobierno debe también aceptar una solicitud de asilo recibida en el año siguiente a esta normativa como recibida a tiempo. Esto facilita a los solicitantes que no presentaron su solicitud a tiempo una nueva oportunidad de hacerlo.
