Many asylum seekers with claims before the immigration court have had their hearings bumped on and off the docket but are now preparing for their day in court as the Fort Snelling Immigration resumes non-detained hearings.  Legal representatives need to be prepared as asylum caselaw remains in a state of flux and new immigration judges are just starting to make their record issuing decisions in asylum claims.  Join local immigration practitioners discuss the state of play for asylum claims in immigration court.  Discussion will include yet another shift in guidance from The Board of Immigration Appeals and Attorney General on asylum claims for DV survivors and those fearing persecution based on family ties and asylum claims based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
