A Perilous Playground: The Juvenile Jungle Gym of Immigration Enforcement on Children

  • Neglect of Children in America’s Immigration Enforcement Policy

  • Collateral Damage on Children Left Behind

  • Documenting the Emotional Trauma of Families Split by Deportation

  • Removal Proceedings; Crying Out for Justice: Cancellation of Removal as a Form of Relief, asylum for juveniles, “T” and “U” visas

  • Immigrant Visa Waivers for parents of Children Left Behind

  • What’s Special about Special Immigrant Juveniles?

Increased interior immigration enforcement action by Immigration Customs Enforcement, in the form of worksite raids and home raids, has resulted in the arrest, detention and deportation of record numbers of undocumented immigrants over the past several years. In the process, tens of thousands of children of undocumented immigrants, including citizen children, have seen their families torn apart. This seminar will address the effects of our immigration policies, the limited relief available to immigrant families, and how best to make the case to keep families together or reunite them if parents of citizen children are deported.
