JRS urges protection for asylum seekers, not deportation

Finding legal representation is one of the first hurdles that asylum seekers, refugees and migrants arriving in the U.S. face. According to data compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, only 46% of the unaccompanied children going before Immigration Court are currently represented by an attorney and more than 81,000 juveniles are still without legal representation.
