Program Flyer

"The nation's immigration system is broken." This is a common phrase in current political discourse, but what does it really mean? This conference will explore one way in which the immigration system is failing: the temporary guest worker program. Several features of the H-2B program will be explored during this event, including the H-2B recruitment process and intersections with human trafficking; the barriers faced by H-2B workers who experience workplace injuries; and the multiple challenges that arise when undertaking transnational litigation involving H-2B workers. The conference will bring together experts to discuss these issues, while also drawing attention to H-2B issues unique to the D.C. metropolitan area, and to the role that law school clinics can play in addressing these matters.

Presented by the International Human Rights Law Clinic, Immigrants' Rights Division
