California immigration: Representation for detainees is a right

California immigrants accused of a crime may be fearful of being detained for an indefinite period of time or even deportation. A recent investigation conducted by a leading newspaper found some interesting statistics when it came to immigrants and crime. Thousands of undocumented immigrants convicted of serious crimes in this country have been released by federal authorities. However, while that certainly is a serious problem, numerous other immigrants who are detained never committed a serious crime, or none at all, and instead are kept in holding for weeks or even months. Representation for detainees can help immigrants who become caught up in the system and can offer them the legal defense they need.

Immigration numbers show no increase in California

Census data is now showing lower overall numbers of illegal immigration in this country, effectively ending sustained increases over a period of more than a decade. The peak numbers came in 2007, with 12 million undocumented immigrants entering. Last year, the immigration numbers showed only 11.1 million. California, one of the larger states to host immigrants, also posted either a decline or no change in their numbers.

California asylum seekers lack access to help when detained

California immigrants seeking asylum may one day find themselves detained by immigration authorities. It can be difficult to secure legal representation for those caught in that situation. With the possibility of deportation hanging over the heads, being detained in an immigration center may seem like the end of the world. Reports issued by the Detention Watch Network have revealed that no one is safe from the legal system concerning immigration in this country. Asylum seekers, legal and illegal immigrants and even pregnant woman are being detained with little to no access to legal representation.

California has high immigration numbers; Is there room for more?

The topic of immigration has lately been a hotbed of controversy from both sides of the political spectrum. While both political parties have differing opinions about the topic, one thing remains certain. The United States may be friendly to legal immigrants, but other countries far surpass this country in immigration when the numbers are looked at as a percentage of the total population.
