ABA President Hilarie Bass and other panelists provide first-person accounts of the treatment of immigrant families at the U.S. border as part of “Families on the Precipice: Navigating the Separation, Detention, and Reunification of Families at the U.S. border,” on Aug. 5 at the ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago.
Presenters also issued a plea for volunteer attorneys who are needed throughout the country, not just on the U.S.-Mexican border. Volunteers need not speak Spanish or have experience in immigration law. For more information, visit www.ambar.org/immigrantchild
