Expedited Removal Process to Expand

August 10, 2004

The Dept. of Homeland Security will expand the expedited removal process to areas within 100 miles of the U.S. border. Expedited Removal was established by Congress in 1997 to allow for the quick removal of certain inadmissible individuals from the U.S. , including those who arrive at ports of entries and illegally attempt to enter using improper documents. Up until now, it has only been implemented at land and air ports.

Additionally, DHS has indicated that it will soon issue a new rule that will allow Border Crossing Card holders to remain in the U.S. for up to 30 days. BCC holders can currently remain in the U.S. for a 72-hour period.
