Temple Micah Migrant Support Symposium Asylum: Lifeline or Limbo?
Register to attend either in person or on Zoom.
This program will examine two of the most significant and problematic programs along the U.S.-Mexico border in recent history and explain how to support a more just asylum system in the United States. Newly-arrived immigrants from Afghanistan, Honduras, Ukraine, and elsewhere all deserve an equitable and efficient pathway to long-term legal status.
Taking a careful look at the policies governing our southern border, as well as the many ways that HIAS provides legal services to asylum seekers in need, allows us to think about how to approach the broken immigration system we face today and how to demand better on behalf of those seeking safety at our shores.
Featuring HIAS VP of Policy and Advocacy Naomi Steinberg; Senior Director of Legal and Asylum Smita Dazzo; Director of Clergy and Congregations Rabbi Sarah Bassin; Temple Micah Migrant Support Paralegal Erin Namovicz; and more.
