Immigrants being held in detention center are often far away from legal help

Only a small percentage of immigrants being detained by the government have lawyers representing them, according to a report from ProPublica. Only six percent of the detainees at the Lumpkin complex in Georgia have legal representation, according to a 2015 study by the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. Nationwide, the figure isn’t much better — only 14 percent of them have lawyers. Details are available in this report from ProPublica.
