How the Trump Administration is Rewriting the Rules for Unaccompanied Minors
By Nicole Einbinder

Among the other actions taken so far: the Department of Justice decided not to renew approximately $4.5 million in funding for Justice Ameri-corps, a program created three years ago that helped provide legal services to nearly 7,000 unaccompanied minors -- amidst a backlog of almost 90,000 children with cases in immigration court as of August 2017, according to data from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. The EOIR official cited the loss of key leadership and inadquate performance among the reasons for not renewing the funding.
