At the end of November 2018, media outlets widely reported that US officials used tear gas on members of a migrant caravan - including mothers with young children - at the Southern Border. On New Years Day, five students from the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic traveled to Tijuana with Clinic Supervisor Elora Mukherjee to provide much-needed legal advice to asylum seekers. Their trip has been featured in the Guardian and on CLS’ home page. Come hear Professor Mukherjee and the students share insights from their trip to Tijuana, including how we can be helpful to asylum seekers in the future.
