Correcting the Record: Recently Arrived Immigrants Show Up for Their Hearings
By B. Shaw Drake

Per Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), as of October 2016, 98 percent of mothers with legal counsel, whose cases initiated in fiscal year 2014, were in compliance with their immigration court hearing obligations two years later. Ninety-eight percent of children in immigration proceedings also remained in full compliance when represented, and 93 percent of all non-detained represented immigrants appeared in court. Unfortunately, many cannot afford legal counsel and government funding for legal representation for the indigent is very limited.
