Today, Jeff Sessions and the Trump Administration continue to use damaging and factually inaccurate rhetoric when discussing the asylum system. This rhetoric has the potential to upend serious discussions about necessary reforms that will ensure access to fair hearings for those in need.
Please join Human Rights First and a panel of legal experts for a lunchtime discussion on the real-world impact of immigration court changes, proposed changes, and backlogs on access to counsel, access to asylum, due process and fairness. The panel will discuss the findings of our new report—Tilted Justice: Backlogs Grow While Fairness Shrinks in U.S. Immigration Courts—highlighting how Trump Administration policies have exacerbated the court backlog; risk rushed proceedings; and undermine access to counsel, asylum, and fairness at the immigration courts.
Panelists will also address new challenges that your clients may face as they seek refuge here in the United States.
