Democratic Lawmakers Want Kids In Immigration Proceedings To Get a Fair Shot
By Elise Foley

Advocates argue that many -- if not most -- of the mothers and children seeking asylum have a good case for it. But having an attorney may make the difference between receiving relief and being sent back to potentially perilous situations. Children were allowed to remain in the U.S. in 73 percent of cases in which they had representation, according to data from fiscal years 2012 to 2014 analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Children without representation were only allowed to stay in 15 percent of cases.
