This is a recording of an AILA University Video Roundtable free for members, hosted on Friday, June 25 at 1:00 pm Eastern.

With a new increase in Unaccompanied Minors (UCs) at the border and a new president, it is essential to not only review the state of the law but also stay on the cutting edge on trends for success. This panel will discuss:

  • Current Obstacles UCs Face in Removal Proceedings including De-Designation of UCs
  • Which Memorandums Are Currently Controlling?
  • The Benefits and Obstacles Facing Approved Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) Petitions
  • Drafting Winning Particular Social Groups (PSG) for Asylum Cases at the Asylum Units and/or Court
  • An Overview of Other Potential Pathways to Status Available to Children and Identifying Eligibility (Acquired or Derived Citizenship, VAWA, T Visa, and U Visas)

This roundtable is available only to AILA members and not CLE eligible. AILA University Video Roundtables are free learning opportunities for AILA members provided via a weekly schedule of live video programming for members to come together from across the country and world to discuss hot topics and network with colleagues in the field.
