MCLE: One Hour of General Participatory MCLE
This program will cover the legal and humanitarian issues arising from the current Migrant Protection Protocols affecting asylum seekers.
Under the current Migrant Protection Protocols, certain foreign individuals seeking asylum at the U.S. southern border are required to wait in Mexico for the duration of their legal proceedings. This program will discuss the legal and humanitarian issues that are arising as a result of this situation, and the work of the Cross-Border Initiative (CBI) program, which is providing legal services to families and children waiting in Mexico while seeking asylum in the United States.
