Featured Speaker: Kelly Hewitt, Immigration Law and Asylum: Demystifying the Asylum Process

Community Moment: Jim Fisk

Asylum law is so complex, an entire semester of law school could be spent on it. This presentation endeavors to briefly explain the asylum process to help participants understand the alleged “crisis” at our southern border. It will focus on the legal path to asylum in the United States and debunking the myths and lies prevalent in the media.

Note: Due to the terrible situations asylum seekers are fleeing, this presentation may include mention of violence, domestic violence and sexual assault. None of these situations will be described in detail.
