Radical Sanctuary: Faith Groups Rally Around Migrant Youth
By Puck Lo, Tikkun

Only half of unaccompanied minors appearing before Immigration Court have legal representation, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which looked at 100,000 cases. The clearinghouse found that in almost half of cases where a minor had a lawyer, the court allowed the child to stay in the United States. In comparison, in cases where a child appeared before a court without a lawyer, in nine out of ten times the child was deported.
