By Dianne Solis

An asylum case in which the immigrant fears persecution is complex and attorneys are needed in the process, Brané said. Only about a quarter of those in family units, usually headed by a mother, had attorneys in federal immigration courts, which significantly helped them obtain rulings allowing them to stay in the U.S., according to a report of about 26,000 cases by the Syracuse-based organization called Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC.
