Who Counts as a Refugee in US Immigration Policy—and Who Doesn’t

Pablo Lastra, Asylum Program Coordinator of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area has published a piece in The Nation, "Who Counts as a Refugee in US Immigration Policy—and Who Doesn’t."   It explores the personal stories of children and families currently fleeing violence in Central America, and the historical context that has shaped the legal questions at the heart of the contemporary US immigration policy debate.
