The Homeland Security Department re-issues asylum rules to immigration officials. This follows concerns that asylum officers have been misinterpreting decisions about which immigrants get to see a judge for asylum claims. Donald Kerwin, executive director of the Center for Migration Studies, explained to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp how the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has had an uptick in credible fear claims.
