The American Immigration Council just released a report detailing how “fast-track” deportation methods negatively impact asylum seekers. These “fast-track” methods such as expedited removal, in conjunction with detention, disproportionately disadvantage one of the most vulnerable groups of non-citizens currently in the U.S. immigration system: women and their children held in detention centers in isolated locations.

The authors drew from a database of thousands of case files to identify families who faced serious obstacles trying to access the asylum process. The report details numerous challenges experienced by asylum seekers, including:

  • High Incidence of Psychological Trauma among Detainees
  • Medical Conditions Adversely Impact the Ability to Pursue Protection
  • Limited Access to Language Services
  • Complexity of the Legal Standard Applicable to Credible Fear Screenings
  • Problems in the Credible Fear Interview Process
