The Department of Homeland Security announced a proposed overhaul of asylum procedures in an interim final rule that will be published this week. For example, asylum officers now will be empowered to hear and decide asylum claims in a non-adversarial setting. But the rule also introduces drastic timelines that threaten due process protections, such as the ability to access counsel, which is one of the most important factors in outcomes in asylum cases. Join experts fromthe American Immigration Council for a webinar on Thursday, March 31 at 12pm on the proposed changes and what they could mean for people seeking asylum.Asylum Overhaul: Unpacking DHS’ New Rule onAsylum ProceduresThursday, March 3112:00 - 12:45 pm EDT/9:00 - 9:45 amhttps://register.gotowebinar.com/register/3284649572907740943
