(San Diego Union Tribune) - State Sen. Ben Hueso, D-San Diego, introduced a bill Monday in the state legislature that would fund legal representation for noncitizens facing deportation.
Because immigration proceedings are considered a civil matter, those facing deportation do not have a right to a lawyer in the way that those facing criminal charges do. Hueso’s bill, called the Due Process For All Act, would broaden state funding for immigration legal counsel.
According to a fact sheet from Hueso’s office, 68 percent of noncitizens held in detention facilities do not have legal representation, and detained people who have lawyers are more than five times more likely to succeed in challenging their deportation.
The fact sheet also alludes to President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promises to ramp up deportation efforts.
The Due Process For All Act, SB 6, is one of two immigration bills expected the first day of the new session. Hueso will join Senate President pro tem Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, D-Paramount, and Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, to discuss the bills at a news conference.
