Group in Iowa seeks lawyers to represent unaccompanied immigrant children: Study finds 48 percent of children appear without attorney as of June 2014
By Alison Gowans

According to an analysis of more than 100,000 case records by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, 48 percent of children appearing in court to determine whether they should be deported appeared without an attorney, as of the end of June 2014. For about half the cases in which children were represented by a lawyer, they were allowed to remain the United States. However, only one in 10 juveniles without an attorney were allowed to stay.
