Event Details

The ABA Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) invite you to a webinar presentation. As advocates help youth navigate the legal immigration process, it is important to have an understanding of the areas where children migrate from and reasons for migration. Most children arriving unaccompanied migrate to the United States from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
