The Immigration Policy Center has released a report on the impact of legal representation on immigrants. It points out that nearly half of all undocumented immigrants manage their removal proceeding without the benefit of a lawyer. Further, undocumented immigrants may not be taking advantage of current policies, such as prosecutorial discretion, which may greatly help an immigrant’s case.
Without up-to-date knowledge of Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s laws, immigrants without attorneys risk a lot. The law may be incorrectly applied to them. Or, they may not be utilizing a particular law or policy in their favor.
