New York City Has Taken On 424 Cases In Effort To Get Lawyers For Undocumented Immigrant Kids
By Adrian Carrasquillo

Using data up to June 2014, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) from Syracuse University found that children were almost five times more likely to be allowed to stay in the country when they had a lawyer (47% were allowed to stay) versus when they were without counsel (10%). More recent data, as of January 2015, found that women with children but without representation were only successful 1.5% of the time, while those with counsel had a 26% success rate.
