This free online series, hosted by the American Society for International Law (ASIL), features expert panelists discussing the U.S. immigration system and laws, as well as recent executive actions, in light of international laws and norms. Panelists representing both parties will analyze positions and policies of the two U.S. presidential candidates, as they seek to “fix” U.S. immigration law, policy, and practice.

The discussion will cover immigration enforcement matters, including especially extraterritorial detention centers, refugee camps, border walls, biometric screening and surveillance, family separation practices, and deportation practices.  The panel will also discuss the implications of international law and norms for U.S. refugee and asylum law, policy, and practice.
