Do immigrants have rights in the court system?

The United States has many laws and regulations. It has standards it upholds no matter who you are or where you come from. As such, every person in the United States has a right to a fair case in court. Whether you're here legally or not, you have a right to an attorney and to defend yourself against any allegations you face.

As an immigrant, you probably already realize that, sometimes, the law isn't on your side. It's been acknowledged that the United States criminal justice system does struggle with race and immigrant issues. As a result, many immigrants are deported without fair trials or denied assistance, which is a violation of their rights. Racism is just one possible cause for mistreatment of immigrants.

Immigrants have a right to counsel, a fair hearing and a judicial review. Immigrants have a right to challenge being placed into detention and the right to fight for proportionate sanctions in the case that they committed a crime. The most important thing immigrants have a right to is equal treatment. Unfortunately, many of these rights are not acknowledged, leaving those wanting to live in the United States as an immigrant in a difficult position.

It is a goal for the government to end mass detention and deportation, because all people deserve a fair hearing. Presently, this isn't the case, which is why it's so important to work with someone familiar with immigration law. Your attorney can help protect you against unfair treatment, so you can do everything in your power to stay in the United States.
