The Scandal of Refugee Family Reunification: How the U.S. Refugee Family Reunification System Hinders Reunification and Endangers Families — And What Can Be Done About It by Andrew John Haile, Boston College Law Review June 25, 2014 Boston College Law Review, Forthcoming

Abstract: Many refugees arrive in the United States without their families due to forced separation abroad. Upon arrival, most are immediately eligible for reunification with certain family members, yet the immigration processes they must follow are torturous and often penalize the most vulnerable refugees with the least ability to self-advocate. This Note explains the U.S. refugee family reunification system, identifies its flaws, and provides comprehensive solutions for reform.
