Unaccompanied Minors and the American Legal System
This video is designed to "climatize" family court judges and child development professionals to cases involving immigrant minors who come to our country without a parent or guardian to care for them.

UM cases present special challenges to the U.S. Immigration Courts and to state family courts because the Office of Refugee Resettlement often performs the guardian role for the UMs similar to the state's guardian role in foster care cases.
