First Friday Coffee & Case - Anti-Blackness in the Immigration System
Issues: Asylum , Legal Representation , Migrant Rights
The Black Immigrant Collective will be joining The Advocates to discuss the unique challenges Black and African migrants face in coming to the United States and to the US-Mexico border; the disparate treatment of Black and African migrants at the border and in the immigration system in the US; the double or triple criminalization of Black and African immigrants in the US; and other considerations for attorneys representing Black and African clients in the immigration system.
Designed for new and existing volunteer attorneys, this discussion
series provides space to connect with other attorneys handling cases
with similar topical issues. The Advocates staff will guide informal
discussions related to the topic of the day and share timely information
with group participants.
