The ABA Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) invites you to a webinar presentation providing a review of substantive and procedural changes in immigration law affecting unaccompanied children over the past year. The presentation will highlight both the ups and downs of the past months including ways to preserve the rights of unaccompanied children. Topics covered will include, The Trump Administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the immigration system; litigation updates on the detention of unaccompanied children; regulatory, procedural, and adjudicatory changes at EOIR and its effects for unaccompanied children; regulatory and procedural changes to asylum as well as significant case law updates; and regulatory and policy changes to Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.
The presentation aims to provide guidance, including ethical considerations to attorneys on how to litigate in a constantly changing environment, as well as point them to resources to guide them along the way.
