There is no area of US law that is more controversial than immigration law in general, and asylum and refugee practice specifically. There is an abundance of partisan and slanted information circulated on the subject. This reality makes it difficult to obtain an objective understanding of current US asylum and refugee law and practice, and how it differs from the practices of prior administrations.
Ken Stern, who practiced immigration law for 40 years, will do his level best to present an objective overview of the subject which will be followed by a lively and respectful discussion of how US asylum and refugee policy does or does not reflect our Jewish values.
