The Family Separation Crisis and the Importance of Legal Representation
Sponsored by Specialty Practice Sections Earlier this summer, the media and the public became aware of a growing crisis of immigrant children being separated from their parents and held in government custody as a result of the administration’s zero-tolerance policy toward illegal border crossings. The attorneys providing legal services to the unaccompanied children have played a critical role in ensuring that these children are safe, provided with information about their legal rights, and reunited with their parents when possible. However, even before this public spotlight, many unaccompanied children, including some with histories of abuse, trafficking, and other harms have faced complicated legal proceedings without lawyers to represent them. The presenters will provide an overview of the intersection of family separation and legal services for unaccompanied children, from the perspective of a practitioner on the ground, the national picture, and the federal policy changes under consideration.
