Revving Up the Deportation Machinery: Enforcement under Trump and the Pushback results from a year-long study into how immigration enforcement has been handled by the Trump administration.

In 2010 under Padilla v. Kentucky, the Supreme Court issued that criminal defense attorneys, including public defenders, must advise their clients about the potential immigration implications of their criminal case.

Two-thirds of detained immigrants face such proceedings without an attorney, and pay a price as a result. Unrepresented immigrants at the Varick Street Immigration Court in New York, for example, stand only a four percent chance of remaining in the country.
