"In deciding who may stay and who must leave this country, the
deportation process for immigrants tolerates unfairness at every turn.
Current laws have denied basic due process protections to people held in
immigration detention. And now, a new report
in the Cardozo Law Review reveals a severe shortage of competent legal
assistance for tens of thousands facing deportation. The study examines
cases in New York, but New York is hardly unique in this failing." - New York Times Editorial, Dec. 25, 2011.
