Undocumented immigrants find safety, resources and opportunity in New Haven
By Mary O'Leary

Having an attorney in the case of the undocumented women and juveniles in New Haven makes a big difference to the outcome. From October 2004 to June of 2016, more than half of the undocumented children in the U.S. who did not have legal representation were deported, while only one in 10 who had an attorney were sent back, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. The American Civil Liberties Union and others have filed a class-action suit arguing that the government should be required to provide legal counsel in immigration cases for children.
