Advocates urge N.J. to provide legal aid to detained immigrants
A coalition of immigration advocates, law professors and private attorneys are calling for New Jersey to provide legal assistance to detained immigrants facing deportation.
"We think it's desperately needed here in New Jersey," said Lori Nessel, director of the Seton Hall University School of Law Center for Social Justice. "We have a dire need for representation."
