FAIR has a good legal analysis of S.744 as it relates to refugees/asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 8, 2013

More refugees, a potentially greater variety (whole classes of people would be eligible at the discretion of Homeland Security), easier asylum rules, etc. —all with no hearings.  As we said before, Congress should strip out all of the refugee/asylum sections from the monster Gang bill.

Federation for American Immigration Reform:

Title III Subtitle D of S. 744 undermines current asylum and refugee law by eliminating preexisting requirements aliens apply for asylum within a certain time frame of entering the U.S., allowing asylum officers to bypass immigration judges before granting asylum to unlawful aliens, and giving broad authority to the Administration to create new categories of refugees and stateless persons to be admitted into the country.
