Immigrant Families & Asylum: How Has President Biden Shifted the Policy Landscape?

August 26, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The Center for Immigration Law and Policy (CILP) is hosting a conversation about the Biden Administration's policies toward families seeking asylum at the border. The conversation, hosted by CILP's Gabriela Domenzain, will explore two strategies the Biden Administration has now started to employ: Expedited Removals and Expedited Dockets. The conversation will highlight what UCLA Law Professor Ingrid Eagly's research shows on these subjects, the first-hand experience of Suny Rodriguez, a Honduran mother who experienced both policies under the Obama Administration, and the on-the-ground defense work of Elora Mukherjee, the director of the Immigrants' Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School, that resulted in Suny, and many other detained families, being released and then winning their asylum cases.
