The Immigration Clinic has created this resource page for detainees in immigration proceedings. The information and resources are designed to introduce people to basic immigration court procedure as well as common defenses against deportation. These resources do not constitute legal advice. Nor do they address every topic in immigration law and procedure.
Because immigration law and procedure can be complicated and winning a case is difficult, detainees are encouraged to seek the assistance of a lawyer. People who are proceeding without a lawyer and anyone who would like more detailed information about the topics discussed here should visit the law library of the detention center or jail where they are detained.
