At least 100,000 additional nationals from Northern Triangle countries shall be admitted as refugees each year from FY2020 through FY2024.

The bill requires the hiring of additional Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers, immigration judges, and related staff.

The Department of Homeland Security shall establish standards of minimum care for individuals in CBP custody and additional guidelines and standards relating to children in CBP custody.

The bill expands penalties related to smuggling and establishes criminal penalties for certain actions related to evading border controls.

The bill contains various other immigration-related provisions, including (1) limits on when asylum applicants may be removed, (2) an expansion of alternatives to detention programs, and (3) a requirement that the Department of Justice provide counsel to children and particularly vulnerable individuals in immigration proceedings.
