Video highlights: Experts compare and contrast immigration policies north and south of the U.S.-Canada border

Legal experts on both sides of the border examine immigration and asylum issues in the United States and Canada during the ABA Midyear Meeting program titled, “Lessons Across Borders: What the U.S. and Canada Can Teach One Another About Establishing a Successful Immigration and Asylum Policy,” on Feb. 3 in Vancouver.

 The wide-ranging discussion covered a broad range of issues, from the controversial travel bans as well as the threats to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in favor of one like the Canadian system, which awards points to potential immigrants based on their education, skills and language abilities.
