Immigration detainees: Lost in America

Talia Inlender, a staff attorney at Public Counsel in Los Angeles, in this L.A. Times op/ed tells the human costs of the failure of the immigration court system to ensure the basic due process rights of immigrant detainees with mental disabilities.

Inlender is part of a team, which includes the ACLU, the law firm of Sullivan Cromwell and immigrants' rights and mental health organizations, litigating Franco-Gonzalez vs. Holder, a class-action lawsuit seeking appointment of counsel for immigration detainees with severe mental disabilities.
