Statelessness in the United States: An Emerging Challenge to Immigrants' Rights


Friday, March 4, 2011

American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

Stateless people ? those who are not nationals of any country ? are not granted specific human rights protections under US law. The lack of legal provisions recognizing the complexities of statelessness and the vulnerabilities of stateless people means they risk indefinite detention by an immigration system built around the idea that, if needed, non-US citizens can be sent back to their ?home? countries. Numerous stateless people also live in legal limbo in the shadows of immigrant communities. Learn about the situation of stateless people in the United States and how NGOs and members of Congress are working to address their challenges.
