With thousands of children having come across the border illegally, and now being deported, the eyes of the nation are yet again focused on the immigration issue. This could not be more personal than it is for the millions of people that have come to this country looking for a better life and opportunities that were not available in their home country.The challenge with the current immigration fiasco is that children are involved which makes it even more complicated. In fact, the American Civil Liberties Union just sued the Federal Government for not providing these kids with legal representation at their deportation hearings. The case was filed on behalf of eight children, ages 10 to 17 that were not able to find an attorney for their hearings. Immigration courts are not required to provide attorneys for those that are facing deportation. This can create a chaotic situation with a group of people, in this case minors that do not understand the process and may be unable to speak the language.It is unclear yet whether or not the class action will be successful considering that people who are not citizens of the United States are not entitled to the same legal benefits as those who are.
