Appointed Counsel for Immigrants?

Mark Noferi
(Brooklyn) has a recent op-ed in the New York Law Journal interesting for the ImmProf Blog. The op-ed argues that the recent U.S. Supreme Court case Turner v. Rogers, which considered the right to appointed counsel in civil cases where incarceration is at issue, supports a right to appointed counsel for immigrant detainees in the future.

Is appointed counsel the next step to protect immigrants facing removal after the Supreme Court's decision in Padilla v. Kentucky?
