Description

There are few things in U.S. society today as controversial and politically and emotionally laden as our immigration policy. The complexity of the immigration system is perplexing even to those who dedicate their lives to helping people maneuver through its maze. It is further complicated not only by language and cultural barriers but by myths of who is allowed “in” and who is not. In this changing world, with issues of Mexican asylum, family-based asylum in light of same sex marriages and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the consequences are life-altering and sometimes deadly.
