Abstract:     
Many refugees arrive in the United States without their families due to forced separation abroad. Upon arrival, most are immediately eligible for reunification with certain family members, yet the immigration processes they must follow are torturous and often penalize the most vulnerable refugees with the least ability to self-advocate. This Note explains the U.S. refugee family reunification system, identifies its flaws, and provides comprehensive solutions for reform.
