Lawyers: Immigration court system is 'red tape gone crazy'
By Sophia Tareen

Most immigrants don't have attorneys. A 2016 study by the American Immigration Council shows that nationwide 37% of immigrants in removal proceedings had attorneys, though that varies from city to city. For immigration attorneys, the job can be disheartening. Judges nationwide rejected nearly 70% of asylum cases in the fiscal year that ended in 2019, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
