Webinar: Asylum Betrayed? Biden's Border Politics and Title 42

Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility - Friday, January 13, 2023, 11:00AM to 12:30PM (EST)

"During his campaign for the presidency, Joe Biden promised to end the Trump Administration's use of Title 42 (an obscure public health law) to expel asylum-seekers at the US border. In office, he initially sought to withdraw the controversial Trump policy, but was stopped in the courts. Since then, he has doubled down on Title 42 expulsions--recently announcing special programs to expel Venezuelans, Cubans, Haitians and Nicaraguans as well as continuing its use against other asylum-seekers. The Administration is also considering reviving a Trump Administration plan to deny asylum to those who traveled through Mexico and did not seek asylum there. The webinar will examine the Biden policies and current court cases challenging Title 42 expulsions. We will hear from experts on why and how the right to asylum should be restored at the US southwest border.  Speaker: Eleanor Acer, Alexandra Délano Alonso, and Lee Gelernt.  Moderator: T. Alexander Aleinikoff."
