In 1948, the United Nations enacted the declaration of human rights that recognized asylum as a means for immigrants to flee persecution from their home country. This act was a response to the Holocaust and the turning away of the St. Louis in 1939. Seventy years later, the U.S. and Europe are facing a new set of immigration issues. Join Congregation Bonai Shalom and Sandra Saltrese-Miller, an immigration lawyer, for December First Friday, December 7 as she discusses the history of American asylum law and current key policy issues relating to refugees, asylum seekers, and birthright citizenship.
