The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 authorized the INS to quickly remove certain inadmissible foreign nationals from the United States. The authority covers foreign nationals who are inadmissible because they have no entry documents or because they have used counterfeit, altered, or otherwise fraudulent or improper documents. This authority covers foreign nationals, who arrive in, attempt to enter, or have entered the United States without having been admitted or paroled by an immigration officer at a port-of-entry.
This law allows the immigration authorities to order the removal of a foreign national without a hearing before an immigration judge. Unless the foreign national can show that he/she has a legal status in the United States or demonstrates a credible fear of persecution if returned to his/her home country.
