Undocumented minors not getting due process in immigration cases
By Jessica Mendoza

In the United States, thousands of immigrants many of them underage, mentally ill or otherwise vulnerable risk deportation as they face the court system without legal counsel. Of the 375,000 cases currently pending in immigration courts throughout the nation, more than 40,000 involve juveniles. But because the U.S. government does not guarantee counsel for undocumented immigrants, more than two-thirds of those children appear in court without a lawyer, according to the latest report from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which tracks immigration data.
