The Center for Immigration Studies will host a panel discussion entitled “Asylum Reform and the Border” on Wednesday, October 27, at 9 a.m. EDT at the National Press Club.

Current interpretations of U.S. law encourage aliens to enter the United States illegally and receive work permits by making asylum claims, many of which are meritless or fraudulent.

Recent regulatory changes to the asylum process at the border proposed by the Biden administration will provide even greater incentives for them to violate our laws.

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.), who has twice introduced legislation to help prevent fraud and abuse in the asylum system, will join Center for Immigration Studies experts to discuss the U.S. asylum system and propose ways to close the loopholes that encourage the fraudulent asylum claims swamping both USCIS and the immigration courts.

Date: Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 9 a.m. EST

Location: National Press Club, Fourth Estate Room, 529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor, Washington, D.C.

Streams: Youtube, Facebook, Twitter

The National Press Club requires that guests provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test dated within the last 72 hours to gain entry into the facility.
