  1. 1. AILA Document Addresses Central Americans Seeking Asylum Christopher Stender, Immigration Attorney
  2. 2. Introduction • Immigration attorney Christopher Stender has served as partner with Federal Immigration Counselors in Phoenix, Arizona since 2011. With an extensive background in immigration law, attorney Christopher Stender also served as the former vice president of the Arizona chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). The American Immigration Lawyers Association is a national organization for those who practice and teach immigration law across the United States. In keeping with their mission to promote justice and advocate for fair immigration policy, the AILA developed a document in 2016 entitled Due Process Denied: Central Americans Seeking Asylum and Legal Protection in the United States. The document addresses concern surrounding government policies dealing with asylum seekers from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.
  3. 3. American Immigration Lawyers Association • As violence increased in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, the number of women and unaccompanied children seeking asylum in the United States between 2008 and 2014 skyrocketed. Though proving asylum can be a lengthy and difficult process in the United States, of the cases that were tried in court, 90 percent were deemed as legitimate asylum cases. Due Process Denied responds to the escalation of raids and arrests of Central Americans and outlines suggested solutions to restore due process and protect people fleeing violence in their home countries. Some of those suggestions include: -Changing border crossing processes for those seeking asylum. -Suspending fast-track deportations. -Ending the detention of families. -Providing legal counsel for those facing removal. -Reforming the immigration court system to ensure due process.
