New York To Pay For Legal Aid For Kids Facing Deportation
By Roque Planas

A study by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse Immigration Project found that roughly 90 percent of children facing deportation proceedings without a lawyer got deported, compared with about 50 percent for those who had legal representation. Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges, has warned that rapidly adjudicating deportation proceedings for children who fled violence at home may put them in danger. "In effect, these can be death penalty cases," Marks said last month, according to The Houston Chronicle.
