Former ICE Head Call for Access to Counsel for Minors in Immigration Courts

In a thoughtful  op-ed today in the Wall Street Journal, Julie Myers Wood (former ICE head) and Wendy Young (President of Kids in Need of Defense) called for the appointment of counsel for minors who appear before immigration judges.  The op-ed discusses the insurmountable challenges these kids -- some as young as 5 -- can face. Many of them have fled violence, poverty, neglect, or abuse in their home countries and now face a daunting and complex immigration system.  Let's hope that the House takes Ms. Myers and Ms. Young's call into serious consideration!
