Immigrant Children Entitled to Court Hearing

The Associated Press reports that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday that two laws passed by Congress didn’t end the right to a bond hearing for unaccompanied immigrant children detained by federal authorities. The court said that immigrant children who cross the border without their parents have the right to a court hearing to challenge any decision to detain them instead of turning them over to family in the United States. The ruling is especially prescient since a reported tens of thousands of unaccompanied children fleeing gang and drug violence in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador have entered the United States in recent years.
