Comment Request

ACTION: Notice of Information Collection under Review: Application for 
Asylum and for Withholding of Removal.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service 
(INS) has submitted the following information collection request to the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance in 
accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.
    The INS published a Federal Register notice on August 7, 2000 at 65 
FR 48252 to solicit public comments for a 60-day period regarding the 
proposed revision of Form I-589 (Application for Asylum and for 
Withholding of Removal). The proposed revisions included both the 
Instructions to completing the Form I-589 and the application form 
itself. At the close of the public comment period on October 6, 2000, 
the INS had received three responses regarding the proposed revisions. 
The public comments received have been addressed in the accompanying 
Supporting Statement.
    The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for 
public comments. The proposed draft of the revised information 
collection published with this notice is for public review and comment 
only and may not be used to obtain immigration benefits. Comments are 
encouraged and will be accepted until April 5, 2001. This process is 
conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 1320.10.
    Written comments and/or suggestions regarding the items contained 
in this notice, especially regarding the estimated public burden and 
associated response time, should be directed to the Office of 
Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 
725 17th Street, NW., Room 10235, Washington, DC 20530; Attention: 
Lauren Wittenberg, Department of Justice Desk Officer; 202-395-4318.
    Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected 
agencies concerning the proposed collection of information should 
address one or more of the following four points:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    Overview of this information collection:
    (1) Type of Information Collection: Revision of currently approved 
collection.
    (2) Title of the Form/Collection: Application for Asylum and for 
Withholding of Removal.
    (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the 
Department of Justice sponsoring the collection: Form I-589, Office of 
International Affairs, Asylum Division, Immigration and Naturalization 
Service.
    (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individuals or Households. The 
information collected on this form will be used to determine whether an 
alien applying for asylum and/or withholding of removal in the United 
States is classifiable as a refugee, or eligible for protection under 
the Convention Against Torture, and is eligible to remain in the United 
States.
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 53,000 
responses at 12 hours per response.
    (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: 636,000 annual burden hours.
