Date AnnouncedJune 12, 2020
Through Policy Memo 20-14, EOIR rescinds five Operating Policies and Procedures Memoranda (OPPMs) issued in 2006 or earlier that are deemed to be outdated, unnecessary or superseded by statute.
Included among the OPPM rescinded is OPPM 06-05, Asylum Grants Based on Coercive Population Control Methods, which (1) required EOIR to track asylum grants based on coercive population control (CPC) claims, (2) instructed IJs to determine if asylum applications raised CPC claims; and (3) for asylum applications brought by Chinese citizens, instructed IJs to ask respondents if their application involved a CPC claim and note this on the IJ worksheet.
The other rescinded OPPMs pertain to employee leave and compensation practices.
