KIND, the National Immigration Project (NIPNLG), and Public Counsel, in their capacity as counsel to the certified class in J.O.P. v. DHS, No. 8:19-cv-01944 (D. Md.), have responded to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS’) invitation for public comment on its recent revisions to the asylum application form and instructions. KIND and its co-counsel suggested ways to improve the quality and clarity of information in the instructions and on related web pages relevant to the nationwide class of asylum seekers who previously received “Unaccompanied Alien Child” (UC) determinations.
