NY Bar Association: Congress Should Appoint Counsel to Children in Removal Proceedings

The New York City Bar Association and its Committee on Immigration and Nationality Law  have written in support of H.R. 4936, the Vulnerable Immigrant Voice Act (VIVA), and Senator Mikulski’s proposed appropriations for appointment of counsel for children in removal proceedings. The City Bar and the Committee also urge Congress not to pass any provisions that would deny children from Central America access to full hearings as provided by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.
