Policy Corner: Defending the Right to Asylum-A Sysyphean Task

  • Webinar
  • Immigration

Forty years ago, Congress created an asylum system to ensure that the U.S. protects those seeking refuge from persecution and conforms with international law. Asylum law did not stay uniform for long however, with the past four years bruising and abusing it beyond recognition. As we approach 2021, NIJC reviews the state of asylum today and how you can advocate for and defend the timeless right to seek asylum. NIJC's Policy Corner are monthly presentations open to all community members and pro bono attorneys to provide updates on policy matters affecting immigration.
