On the Border of Justice: Heavy Burdens and Unfair Fights in Immigration Courts

This series (On the Border of Justice: Heavy Burdens and Unfair Fights in Immigration Courts) in City Limits offers an in-depth look at the inadequacies of the nation's immigration courts.  Far from the heated debate over immigration on the presidential campaign trail, the reality of U.S. policy plays out in immigration courthouses, where lawyers can be hard to come by, detention without a hearing is the norm, and the judge you're assigned can be the difference between deportation or a right to stay. Stories by Batya Ungar-Sargon with City Limits photography by Adi Talwar.

The reports, which can be accessed through the link above, cover the following:
