Press Mentions: January 2019

In the Wall Street Journal, Asylum Program Director Jennifer Bailey explains the challenges of providing legal assistance to individuals seeking asylum in the current political climate. Unfortunately, the article focused on limited resources rather than the harrowing journeys faced by families fleeing persecution or the value that asylum seekers add to our communities.

Advocacy & Outreach Attorney Julia Brown provides context on the impact of the government shutdown on the Boston Immigration Court and on individuals seeking asylum in the Portland Press Herald and on WMTW, respectively.
