This rule amends 8 CFR 1003.42 (h) to reflect the implementation of ACA other than the U.S.-Canada agreement. In particular, the rule will make technical changes to 8 CFR 1003.42 (h) (1) and (2) to clarify that these paragraphs apply only to the existing agreement between the United States and Canada. The rule creates new 8 CFR 1003.42 (h) (3) and (4) to reflect the distinction that screening threshold officers in non-Canadian CAAs offers abroad the opportunity to prove that they are more likely to be persecuted or tortured because of protected soil. Paragraph h, paragraph 3, prohibits an IJ from verifying that an official has found that Article 208 (a) (A) prevents a foreigner from seeking asylum. In any event, an IJ acquires the responsibility of verifying a finding of credible negative anxiety in all cases where a foreigner either proves that he is eligible for the ACA exemption or claims more likely harm in the third country concerned, thereby prohibiting the application of the ACA to that foreign national. (In such a case, the asylum officer would grant a credible fear screening abroad and initiate an IJ court to verify the negative results of that official.) The new h (4) specifies that a foreigner who is admitted to life under an ACA does not have the right to apply for CTU withholding and facilitation in the United States, as well as asylum, as explained in the detailed legal framework of the rule. Start printed Page 64004 Prior to the suspension of the ACA on 16 March 2020, local non-governmental partners of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) had interviewed some of those transferred under the ACA and found that about two-thirds of those interviewed had international protection problems. [5] However, only a small proportion of those who feared returning to their country of origin applied for asylum in Guatemala, according to UNHCR. Many also told UNHCR partners that they were not ready to stay in Guatemala and stressed their inability to source their own supplies, and the authorities and Guatemala`s proximity are wary of their country of origin, fearing that their persecutors will reach them.
