Pima County families can spend $24k often more than a year's earnings to fight immigration cases
By Paul Ingram


Families spent on average $3,700 to mount a legal defense, and those that did were more than five times as likely to win some form of relief than those who did not, making an attorney a vital necessity for families hoping to protect a loved one from deportation. This result follows similar findings from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a database of federal records based at Syracuse University, which found in 2017 that asylum seekers were five times as likely to win their case if they had legal representation.
