Episode Notes

The faces of children being separated from their families at the border have been plastered on the news. What you don’t see are the lawyers on the ground are doing everything they can to help these families. In this report from On The Road at ABA Annual Meeting 2018, host Lee Rawles talks to Kimi Jackson, Maria Woltjen, and Anne Chandler about the common legal issues that are facing immigrants at the border such as family separation. They discuss what makes this such a hot topic in the media, less commonly addressed problems like working with non-biological families, and what the ABA is doing to help.

Kimi Jackson is the director of Probar, a south Texas pro bono asylum representation project.

Maria Woltjen is the founder and executive director of the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights at the University of Chicago Law School.
