Join Human Rights First on Thursday, March 23 for a webinar briefing on the recent actions taken by the Biden Administration regarding Nicaraguan asylum seekers.

The Administration’s approach has been mixed, with some policies aimed at providing safe passage for a limited number of Nicaraguans with a U.S. sponsor, valid passports, and enough funds to travel to the U.S., while others have been harmful and dangerous for asylum seekers arriving at the U.S. Southern border.

During the briefing, Human Rights First experts Jennifer Quigley, Senior Director of Government Affairs, and Anwen Hughes, Director of Legal Strategy, Refugee Programs, will delve into the issue and its implications. They will discuss the reasons behind these policies, the harm they cause, their impact on those seeking asylum in the U.S., and the advocacy work done by Human Rights First to push for better immigration policies and the protection of refugees’ rights.

The briefing promises to be an insightful and informative session, shedding light on the latest developments and efforts to improve the situation for Nicaraguan asylum seekers. Join us this month to learn more and be a part of the discussion.
