On June 11, 2018, former Attorney General Sessions issued a precedential opinion in Matter of A-B- overruling the Matter of A-R-C-G- landmark decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals, which had recognized that domestic violence survivors may be eligible for asylum protection. This case yielded new policies and practices by immigration agencies and adjudicators, as well as federal court litigation.
Watch this free webinar, provided by AILA National's Asylum Committee, in collaboration with the Immigration Justice Campaign, as expert practitioners discuss the Matter of A-B-, trends at all levels of adjudication, and legal arguments and strategies that practitioners need to continue winning asylum for their clients in a post-A-B-world.
