Immigrant detainees deserve lawyers

Immigrant detainees deserve lawyers

"Put simply, an immigrant's access to an attorney can be as important as the facts in his or her case.  The only reasonable solution is to provide attorneys to those immigrant detainees who need them. It would cost, of course, but due process comes with a price. And in some cases, assigning lawyers to detainees could actually lead to savings." - Los Angeles Times Editorial, Nov. 8, 2011.
