Public Description:  

H.R. 5851, the Refugee Protection Act, would make dramatic reforms to the Refugee program making it much easier for foreign nationals to come to the United States and claim refugee status. The bill virtually allows anyone who can make it to the United States to be approved for asylum process -- a number that could potentially affect more than 10 million people.
