Developed by the Catholic Legal Immigration Network in 2014. The toolkit provides information about the surge in unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S. border in 2014 and the common forms of relief available to them.
This webinar, by the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC), addresses advocacy on behalf of unaccompanied children residing with sponsors and relatives across the United States as they await their immigration hearings. Panelists provide updates on where the children are living, their impact on local communities, and steps you can take to welcome them.
This webinar is an opportunity for staff of torture treatment programs to review current issues in U.S. asylum law and how those challenges impact healing for survivors of torture. During this update on asylum law & trends for service providers working with torture survivors we focus on credible fear interviews and asylum presentations especially on the Southern border, including what happens to clients in the process, where they go after entry, and differences between those claims and affirmative cases.
Service providers who work with survivors of torture and forced migration know that their clients face many challenges in navigating environments that feel unsafe and out of their control. Concerns about their safety and their family's safety may be associated with living in a high-crime neighborhood, where "there is nothing 'post' about PTSD"; with fearing the police or other people in uniforms due to their trauma triggers; or with concerns about what seems to be an increase in anti-immigration rhetoric and the larger and, for now unanswerable, concerns around immigration and deportation.
