The Commission on Immigration directs the American Bar Association’s efforts to ensure fair treatment and full due process rights for immigrants and asylum-seekers within the United States, promoting diminished reliance on and alternatives to detention, and improving access to qualified legal representation and information for individuals in immigration proceedings, including particularly vulnerable individuals such as unaccompanied immigrant children and individuals with mental disabilities. We invite you to join us for an engaging discussion on the Commission’s work both nationally and locally in California and the Commission’s valuable resources available to practitioners.
