Earlier this week, over 60 members of HIAS’ Board of Directors and other HIAS supporters convened in Washington, DC for the annual HIAS Advocacy Mission. Although several of the meetings with government officials were cancelled, the program included in-depth discussions on issues related to the Syrian refugee crisis, U.S. asylum policies, African asylum seekers in Israel, screening procedures for Haitian migrants, the need for processing Colombian refugees, and the impact of recent terrorist attacks on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi on refugees and asylum seekers in Kenya.
