Refugee & Asylum Status
This report offers recommendations to strengthen immigration legal services in California for immigrants and asylum seekers. The report draws from 20 interviews with executive-level staff from legal service organizations and 80 responses to an online survey of a broad range of immigration legal service providers across the state.
Join us for a conversation on unprecedented challenges presented by record breaking numbers of asylum-seeking families at the southern California border, and on-the-ground updates from leaders at the local, state, national levels.
This in-person program will feature the lived experiences of experts from various communities impacted by family separation, as well as reflections from funders involved in philanthropic responses.
This report profiles the experiences of five asylum-seeking families who are divided by detention. It provides a preliminary analysis of how this separation occurs, and the impact this separation can have on families’ well-being and ability to access humanitarian protection.
