HIAS Briefing on the actual "National Emergency": Threats to Asylum

United States

In the first months of 2019, the Administration has already announced numerous policy changes related to asylum seekers and the U.S.-Mexico border. 

There is no crisis or emergency at the southern border, except the one resulting from the Administration’s own policies, which have put the safety and rights of people seeking asylum at risk.

Join the HIAS team as we discuss the President’s national emergency declaration, the Remain in Mexico policy, increases in immigration detention, refugee arrivals, activity in the 116th Congress, and more.
