ABA House Calls for Immigration Representation
Individuals detained for alleged immigration law violations should be told they have a right to counsel, be allowed to contact their lawyers by telephone, and be instructed of their rights in a language they can understand, the ABA’s policy-making House of Delegates said today.
“These are just basic American due process values,” said Stephen Saltzburg, a professor at George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C.
Resolution 101C (PDF) passed on overwhelming voice vote. No one spoke in opposition to it.
