Trump Wants to Make It Easier to Detain and Deport Unaccompanied Central American Children
By Noah Lanard

About 30 percent of unaccompanied children in courtósome of whom go to court after failing in initial asylum claimsódo not have legal representation, according to the nonpartisan Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. The group has found that women and children are 14 times likelier to win their cases if they have representation. (Many children get pro-bono legal services, while others gain representation through a fund administered by ORR that would be eliminated under a House Republican bill backed by the White House.)
