Using Technology to Meet the Needs of Asylum Seekers in the United States:

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Design Considerations and Web Content Accessibility for Immigrant Populations

by Ron Michel

slide2

The Constitution provides that foreigners

  • within U.S. borders be protected from:
    • Racial discrimination
    • Point of origin based discrimination
    • Arbitrary treatment by the government
slide3

Although foreigners have no Constitutional

right of entry into the U.S., refugees within

U.S. territory have the right to

ask for asylum.

slide4

Laws have been enacted and federal notices published that effectively take the right to request asylum from certain groups of immigrants:

    • Expedited removal laws
        • Notice Designating Aliens Subject to Expedited Removal Under Section 235(b)(1)(A)(iii) of the Immigration and Nationality Act
    • English only laws
slide5

In December 2001 the Immigration and

Naturalization Service (now the U.S.

Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)

within the Department of Homeland Security

(DHS)) instituted a blanket policy of denying

parole to all Haitian asylum-seekers.

Asylum claims filed by these Haitians were processed so quickly that many were unable to find legal representation

slide6

Effect:

  • Some refugees do not get the opportunity
  • to ask for asylum by pleading their case
  • before a judge
  • Justice becomes Inequitable and
  • Inaccessible
slide7

Solution:

  • Legal profession has moral and
  • professional responsibility to insure asylum
  • application process is available to all
  • refugees
  • This can be accomplished through:
      • Language instruction Web-sites
      • Online pro bono attorneys
slide8

Considerations:

  • Instructional technology
  • Human – computer interactions
