Examples of circumscribed in a Sentence

  1. Tim Kaine:

    It's really a choice between congressional involvement under a prompt and reasonable set of rules or a free-for-all involvement, i think the events of the last couple of months convinced them -- yep, it might not have been our original choice, but we'd rather have it circumscribed and appropriate.

  2. Adam Aja:

    It is uncertain what constrained our cemetery, forcing such an overuse of each square meter of soil, it was never clear whether the cemetery was circumscribed so that all burials were forced into a particular plot or whether the burials were clustered around some feature in the landscape. In either case, if this measured density was extrapolated across just the excavated areas, the number of burials would top 1200 persons.

  3. Tom Jawetz:

    When Congress in 1996 enacted sweeping immigration enforcement legislation — putting in place the expedited removal system that today allows Border Patrol agents to quickly deport people Border Patrol agents apprehend without any court process — it specifically created the credible fear process to preserve the right of people to seek asylum when they are apprehended between the ports of entry, congress did that knowing that if it circumscribed the right to seek protection, then it would run afoul of our obligations under Tom Jawetz and international law to not return people to face persecution abroad. The interim final rule issued today acknowledges this history even as it attempts to undo it entirely.
