Summary
This report examines recent developments in US asylum policy, as well as some problems of a continuing nature, such as the interdiction of Haitians on the high seas. The first part provides a background to recent policy changes designed to stem the influx of asylum seekers. A discussion follows on the operation of Immigration and Naturalization Service policy and its immediate impact on the refugee scene in South Texas and Miami. Described next are the conditions in certain immigration detention centres. There is a section entitled 'Interdiction and detention of Haitians' which explains that interdiction circumvents rights to due process since it is carried out on the high seas, rather than on territory subject to US jurisdiction. General reflections on US asylum policy are offered. This is followed by a set of conclusions and recommendations relating to safe haven, interdiction, access to counsel, deterrence and conditions of detention
