      I think children should should be represented by attorneys in removal proceedings, but with the country closing in on a national debt of $20 trillions, I don't want to pay for it. My solution is to expand the Recognition and Accreditation program to provide them with trained laymen for their hearings. https://www.justice.gov/eoir/recogni...roster-reports Bear in mind that if they are just fleeing crime and violence, they are not eligible for asylum, which realistically is the only relief available to them. Asylum eligibility requires showing a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. The main purpose of representation would be to ensure that they receive due process and their claims for relief are fully and fairly developed at their hearings. I want the ones who do have legitimate claims to get relief.
