No one should face a potentially life-changing legal decision without representation that utilizes the best strategic thinking. Conditions are sobering: only 37% have access to legal representation, including women and children; detention capacity continues to expand; and the current administration is in the process of reshaping immigration courts and the federal bar.
The immigration legal services infrastructure, attorneys, accredited representatives, and allies are under significant strain with rapid shifts in policy that present new and complicated legal challenges, as well as a roller coaster of changes in funding and support. In this pressurized moment, lawyers, organizers, and movement builders are seeking out new strategies and evaluating what is working and where practices or approaches could be refined or reimagined.
