ICE transferring Albany’s immigrant detainees to Batavia
By Mallory Moench

A wave of volunteer attorneys stepped up to represent detainees in Albany this summer, and legal organizations are now scrambling to ensure that those moved still have representation. Asylum seekers are five times more likely to get asylum when represented by a lawyer, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University reported. Last year, 20 percent of asylum seekers didn't have a lawyer. Last year, 62 percent of asylum applications were denied.
