The Immigration Journey of Unaccompanied Minors

This post relates to the following MCLE event, hosted by EKO and the Katharine & George Alexander Community Law Center at Santa Clara Law on April 2, 2024:

Unaccompanied Minors: Their Journey, Their Legal Options, and a Call to Action

Held virtually over Zoom

12:00-1:00 p.m. PT

1 hr. CLE Credit (materials below)

In March 2021, immigration officials picked up an astonishing 19,000 crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Since then, the crisis at the boarder hasn't improved--it's gotten worse.

How does this happen? What happens to unaccompanied minors once they've arrived here? And what are our options going forward? Immigration law practitioners discussed these questions and the passions and practicalities of working as an immigration attorney on April 2nd as a part of the Law Center's ongoing speaker series.

The panel featured Gamaliel Galindo of the Law Center, Marili Iturbe Guadarrama of Kids In Need of defense (KIND), Da'Niel Rowan of Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, LLP, and Josephine Amairani Velázquez of KIND. Professor Lynette Parker of Santa Clara Law and Supervising Attorney at the Law Center will moderate.

The materials for the presentation are available, below.
