Description: Geared to the general practitioner or the beginning immigration law attorney, this seminar will cover the fundamentals of immigration law: immigrant and non-immigrant visas, quotas and priority dates, and types of applications and stages in the immigration process. On the removal (deportation) defense aspect, attendees will learn about the basis for removal from the United States, processes employed in immigration court, and forms of relief from removal. Given the recent news reports about caravans of migrants and the crisis at the southern border, the seminar will present the basics of asylum and refugee law together with an update on credible and reasonable fear interviews, seeking release on bond or alternatives to detention, framing asylum related claims, and recent case law pushing back on administration attempts to curtail the legal rights of asylum seekers.
