On January 10, 2019, Al Otro Lado joined the Immigration Justice Campaign for a discussion about volunteering at the U.S.-Mexico border to help protect asylum seekers’ rights. Katharine Gordon, Pro Bono Coordinator for Al Otro Lado, joined recent volunteer attorneys, Amanda Alvarado Ford from the AILA Santa Clara Valley Chapter and Ruby Powers from the AILA Texas Chapter, to offer insights about volunteering on-the-ground in Tijuana.
The Administration wants to block some people who come to our borders from applying for asylum. But what does U.S. law say? In this webinar, the Immigration Justice Campaign provides an inside glimpse into the latest developments at the border. Our legal and policy experts discuss current enforcement at the border, the Trump administration’s plans, what U.S. law in fact allows, and how you can volunteer to represent asylum seekers with the Justice Campaign.
