Unaccompanied Children & Immigration 101

CILA recognized the need to have introductory videos detailing the foundational concepts in working with children in immigration proceedings. The staff recorded the videos below in 2019 for anyone who is new to the field or needs a refresher. The Introduction to Asylum, Introduction to Removal Proceedings for Unaccompanied Children, Family-Based Immigration and VAWA for Unaccompanied Children, Options for Child Survivors of Crimes, and Research and CILA Resources videos were updated in 2022. Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) & SIJS-based Adjustment of Status 101, Ethical Representation of Unaccompanied Children, Introduction to Working with Unaccompanied Children, and Trauma Informed Lawyering with Unaccompanied Children were updated in 2023. The videos are also available for pro bono attorneys working on immigration related cases.
