California’s Due Process Crisis: Access to Legal Counsel for Detained Immigrants
(California Coalition for Universal Representation, June 2017)
This report shows that 68% of detained immigrants in CA are unrepresented. Legal representation can be a major determining factor in the outcome of immigration cases, as those with counsel succeed more than five times as often their unrepresented counterparts. As such, it is both fiscally responsible and morally necessary for CA to defend its residents facing detention and deportation.
