TNH 3.140 (Jeffers Courtroom)

Are undocumented immigrants in the U.S. subjected to a lower standard of justice? As federal immigration offenses multiply to unprecedented levels, courts are forced to cope with bloated dockets by shuffling in as many as fifty defendants at a time to offer pleas. Due process concerns abound, and while the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals cracked down on en masse pleadings in 2009, significant obstacles remain in the realm of right to counsel.
