Representing and Protecting Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian Clients from “Registries” & Delays and Pretextual Denials of USCIS Applications (CARRP)
There is urgency within Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian (AMEMSA) immigrant communities in light of calls for a so-called “Muslim registry” and “ban on Muslim immigration.” Please join us for a 101 training that will cover:
How immigration law has intersected with national security in past discriminatory registration programs such as the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS);
How USCIS policies allow for pretextual delays and denials of AMEMSA USCIS applications through CARRP; review of ACLU-SC updated practice advisory on representing immigrants facing CARRP;
How these programs intersect with FBI and law enforcement; and
Best practices when representing AMEMSA clients.
Speakers: Jennie Pasquarella, Director of Immigrant Rights & Staff Attorney at ACLU Southern California; Staff from Advancing Justice- Asian Law Caucus; Staff from Council on American-Islamic Relations, San Francisco Bay Area; and more.
We will also provide information on future volunteer and training opportunities. Register here.
