Seeking Asylum: Reality at the US / Mexico Border


With Professor Uzoamaka Emeka Nzelibe

Late last year, all anyone could seem to talk about was the migrant caravan approaching the U.S. / Mexico border. Yet, despite all the coverage and conversations, very few people understand the legal and social complexities facing those seeking asylum. Law Professor Uzoamaka Emeka Nzelibe talks about her work representing unaccompanied minors seeking asylum as well as her recent trip to the U.S. / Mexico border with volunteer students and staff to provide assistance to those seeking asylum.
