Online CLE - WIDEN Immigrant Removal Defense for Non-Immigration Attorneys
Time & Location
About the Event
We have been inspired by the number of attorneys who consistently reach out to ask how they may put their attorney skill set to use to protect the due process of detained immigrants. As you know, the COVID crisis has not slowed down immigrant detentions, and we expect a surge in the future due to various changes in immigration policies such as the Public Charge rules. The Supreme Court is also expected to rule on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals by June of this year, which could overturn protection for those known as Dreamers.
In response, we partnered with the Washington Immigrant Defense Network (WIDEN) and others to plan an in-person training day to train Washington State, non-immigration attorneys in removal defense. With the COVID-19 crisis, we have now transitioned this training to take place entirely online. We hope that you can join us.
