Gregory Chen Sounds Alarm over Attorneys’ Limited Access to Asylum Seekers

Gregory Chen (’98), Senior Director of Government Relations at the American Immigration Lawyers Association, was quoted by The New York Times discussing changes in President Biden’s border policies that limit lawyers’ access to migrants in the custody of Border Patrol (“Lawyers Say Helping Asylum Seekers in Border Custody Is Nearly Impossible,” Jul. 22). Noting that certain lawyers have refrained from accepting clients due to these barriers, “It’s a mere fig leaf of legal access,” Greg said.
