Protecting Asylum in America: A HIAS Briefing Call

United States

Separating children from their parents. Prolonged detention in jail-like conditions. Court proceedings without adequate legal representation or interpreters. This is not how America should be treating people who are seeking protection from violence and persecution in their home countries who are seeking our help.

Join HIAS for a briefing call on May 24 at 4:00pm EST for an overview of the current state of the U.S. asylum system and how HIAS is stepping up to help and protect asylum seekers and their families.
