Legal representation often determines whether an immigrant remains safely in the United States or is deported without ever having any legal counsel. Additionally, whether or not an immigrant is detained during removal proceedings greatly affects the outcome of their immigration case. While an immigrant can legally have an attorney represent him or her at any point in proceedings, representation cannot be at government expense. Statistically, only 14% of detained immigrants are able to obtain representation.
This training is for the limited representation of the detained immigrant at their bond hearing, but this limited representation is extremely helpful for the ultimate outcome of their removal proceedings. You do not have to be an immigration expert to make a difference!
