Amicus Brief: Confidentiality Obligations with Asylum Claims

The brief addresses U.S. government breaches of confidentiality obligations with asylum claims. Two issues are considered – the need to preserve the integrity of the asylum application process by investigating false claims, and the right of an applicant to seek asylum without fear of putting his or her loved ones in harm’s way. Human Rights First was represented by Peter Hillman, Carla Copeland, Aileen Haviland and Deele Jawde of Chadbourne & Parke
