Illegal Minors Have A Field Day In Dallas Immigration Court…Breitbart-Texas

This is what I guess we have come to expect from Breitbart and other politically-motivated media. It is interesting how much of a non-story this is… Some minors are “of shaving age…”  some have “lawyered up…”  etc.  Or the fact that the children in the courtroom have on clean clothes somehow makes them less in need of justice?  Or more to be ridiculed? Imagine what the tone would be if they came to court in anything other than clean clothes?  Also, though EOIR does not provide the information to reporters, it is possible to get some data on individual immigration judges through

In any case, despite the Breitbart reporting, it is somewhat encouraging to know that at least some of these children are receiving representation in their immigration proceedings. -Molly
