Jesuit Refugee Service/USA and 13 US-based Jesuit law schools recently released a report identifying legal challenges facing Central American asylum seekers and migrants. The release of “A Fair Chance for Due Process: Challenges in Legal Protection for Central American Asylum Seekers and Other Vulnerable Migrants” captures efforts by Jesuit law schools to assist asylum seekers and migrants from Central America and challenges they face in delivering these services. Loyola University Chicago School of Law, in collaboration with the Center for the Human Rights of Children, contributed to this report.
