Beyond Title 42: Further Restrictions on the Right to Asylum in the United States
March 01, 2023 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (ET)
On Wednesday, March 1, 2023 from 11am-12pm, the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) hosted a webinar and discussion, “Beyond Title 42: Further Restrictions on the Right to Asylum in the United States.”
Experts discussed the potential humanitarian effects of the new proposed rule that would presume an asylum-seeker is ineligible for asylum due to transit through another country, known as the “asylum ban.” Speakers talked about the proposed rule’s impact on refugees seeking asylum, its use in expedited removal, and how it would affect communities on both sides of the border. Litigation and advocacy strategies were also discussed.

- Eleanor Acer, Senior Director for Refugee Protection, Human Rights First
- Dylan Corbett, Executive Director, Hope Border Institute
CMS Interim Executive Director, Kevin Appleby, moderated the discussion.
