Refugee and Immigration Rights Under the Biden Administration
March 25 / 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
President Biden reversed the Muslim ban on his first day in office, sent a major immigration reform bill to Congress, and committed to restoring the U.S. refugee resettlement program, marking improvements for refugees and immigrants. However, there are thousands of migrant children in overcrowded detention facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border, and refugee resettlement has been delayed as President Biden has not yet increased the refugee admissions cap. Join the Georgetown Chapter of the International Refugee Assistance Project, the Human Rights Institute, the International Migrant Bill of Rights, the Georgetown Immigration Law Journal, and the Georgetown Journal of International Law for a conversation with refugee and immigration lawyers on how the Biden Administration being sworn in does, and does not, change the reality for immigrants and their advocates.
