San Diego County’s decision to dedicate $5 million to immigrant defense a win for all, analysts say
By Salvador Rivera

“This is a real win for not just immigrants who are facing deportation, if anything this is for the sense of fairness and rule of law, it’s important that immigrants have a right to counsel,” said Kocher. “The rule of law cuts both ways, these are people who have a right to stay in this country, but they often don’t know because they don’t have an attorney.”
San Diego County’s move to provide legal representation for immigrants facing removal proceedings is being hailed as a victory for not only migrants, but the entire U.S. legal system. Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, which provides oversight to institutions such as Congress, news organizations, public interest groups, businesses, scholars and lawyers, says San Diego County’s move is an example for the region and the entire country. TRAC is based at Syracuse University in New York.
