Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and Other Avenues of Immigration Relief for Immigrant Children

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

Since the Office of Refugee Resettlement took over the placement of unaccompanied minor children entering the U.S. in 2002, it has cared for more than 40,000 children.  These children travel to the U.S. alone or with a smuggler and are susceptible to financial and violent crime and human trafficking.  Often they cannot return to their home countries because of abusive or neglectful family situations or dangerous country conditions. 

Under a grant from the Vera Institute of Justice, Lutheran Social Services Immigration Legal Assistance Program is proud to represent these children in their immigration cases before the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) and the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).  However, we cannot do it alone.  Please join us for a training on Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and other forms of relief available to these children.  Attendees are encouraged to take a pro bono case.

*Please note that the course materials for this program will be electronic only and sent via email to all registrants via email prior to the session.  Please ensure that your preferred email address is provided with your registration.
