What help is offered to children in deportation proceedings?

While the United States prides itself on the fact that everyone has the right to an attorney when accused of a crime, it's surprising for many people in Florida to learn that this right does not apply to undocumented or unauthorized migrants across the country. The justice system can be overwhelming to say the least, and when the complications of state and federal laws get thrown into the mix, immigrants can often times feel like they are fighting a losing battle.

Could Americans see immigration reform in the up-coming weeks?

The end of March was supposed to be the self-imposed deadline the "Gang of Eight" gave for having a completed immigration reform bill. But with the nation fast moving into the third week in April, it's clear that this deadline has been pushed back. But as Sen.
