Webinar: Overseas Refugee Processing Program for Central American Minors

On December 1, 2014, the Department of State launched a new in-country refugee and parole program for children residing in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Watch a free webinar to learn more about the process permitting certain parents in the United States to request that their children be admitted to the United States as refugees or granted parole. What are the eligibility requirements for a parent to apply? Which Central American children will be eligible? How does the process work? Most importantly, what can legal service providers do to educate communities about the program, identify those who might be eligible, and refer them to refugee resettlement agencies to complete their applications.

 Held January 13, 2015

Presenters for this webinar were Jen Riddle and Kristina Karpinski, CLINIC Attorneys, and Jeffrey Hawks, Associate Director for Processing Operations, USCCB.
