Abstract Every year, thousands of immigrant children are detained by the INS. Alone, unable to speak English, they are detained in juvenile detention centers while immigration officials go through the process of having them deported. Some of the children were escaping poverty, physical abuse, war and sexual exploitation to seek freedom in America.

The Center sued the Immigration and Naturalization Service in 2002 to get legal help for indigent immigrant children.
