Right to Counsel

By Attorney Yifei He

The right to counsel holds true in proceedings before the Immigration Courts. The Due Process clause and the Immigration and Nationality Act afford an alien the right to counsel of his own choice at his own expense. 8 U.S.C. § 1362. Importantly, the Due Process provides the right to a fundamentally Fair Hearing. Immigration Judges must also advise the respondent of the availability of free legal services provided by organizations and attorneys. See Picca v. Mukasey, 512 F.3d 75 (2d Cir. 2008)8 C.F.R. § 1240.10. The importance of being represented by competent Counsel cannot be understated. Particularly in instances where a person’s life and livelihood is at stake.
