Domestic Policy and Unaccompanied Minors at the Border
While the situation at the United States border may seem distant to those witnessing its events across the country, there are many ways in which we can all deepen our understanding and provide support from afar. In this webinar, we will discuss how the border is reflective of the ways in which not only foreign policy, but also domestic policy affects resettlement efforts. You will be provided an overview of the contributing factors to the U.S. border situation, including the reasons unaccompanied minors seek asylum and an explanation for the statistics behind this wave of migration. Speakers will discuss the historical stigma associated with the way we think of the border crisis, and conclude with an explanation of how attendees far removed from the border can help.
