Jeff Sessions further curtails Due Process of Foreign Nationals

DOJ announced that Attorney General Jeff Sessions notified all U.S. Attorney’s Offices along the southwest border of a new “zero-tolerance policy” for offenses under 8 U.S.C. §1325(a), which prohibits both attempted illegal entry and illegal entry into the United States by an individual. Sessions further directed the U.S. Attorney’s Offices to prosecute all DHS referrals for §1325(a) violations to the extent practicable.

The Ninth Circuit denied a petition for review brought by a former Salvadoran professional soccer player and deputy to a Salvadoran congressman, holding that he was statutorily barred from asylum and withholding of removal relief under the serious nonpolitical crime bar, because there was probable cause to believe that he was complicit in the murders in Guatemala of three Salvadoran representatives to the Central American Parliament.
