Public Description:  

H.R. 6175 would make aliens identified on the terror screening database inadmissible and place non-LPR aliens in expedited removal proceedings if on the terror watch list. The bill allows the removal/inadmissibility to be waived with unanimous concurrence of the Secretary of DHS, Attorney General, FBI Director, Director of National Intelligence, and Secretary of State. The bill would also remove asylum, withholding/cancellation of removal, voluntary departure, adjustment of status, and torture protection from terror watch list aliens and make them ineligible for any relief.
