 Courts have consistently held that anyone on United States soil is protected by the Constitution’s right to due process, even if they illegally entered the country, though people generally have greater legal protections inside the country than at the border. This is particularly true if you seek asylum.

You have the right to legal counsel, however the government does not pay for it. In the future, I will provide a list of Pro bono agencies.

You have the right to present testimony such as witnesses, documents even ones that include hearsay.

You have the right to appeal to the Board of Immigration if you do not agree with the Immigration Court’s ruling.

You have the right to fire an attorney at any time, but will need to pay for services given by them.

You have the right to to your own file EVEN IF you have NOT PAID them attorney in full.

Be aware of being represented by Notaries who use appearances attorneys. Notaries cannot give legal advice and also cannot appear in court, thus they use appearance attorneys’.
