An expert in refugee and immigration law, policy, and programs, Mark Hetfield has led the HIAS organization’s (founded in 1881) transformation from one focused on Jewish immigrants to a global agency assisting refugees of all faiths and ethnicities. HIAS is currently a major implementing partner of the UN Refugee Agency and the Department of State.  Mark formerly served as senior advisor at the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, where he directed a congressionally-authorized study on the treatment of asylum seekers (the most comprehensive study on expedited removal to date). He also adjudicated appeals at the Immigration and Naturalization Service and was posted to the US Embassy in Haiti, during a time in which the country was under the control of the military junta. HIAS.org
