The argument over unaccompanied immigrant children under the age of five being represented in an Immigration court is still a big issue

But how do the children end up representing themselves?

Since Immigration cases are seen as civil matters, the responsibility rests on the child’s shoulders.

The legal system in the United States includes two systems: civil and criminal.

The civil cases fight for a person’s civil rights, while criminal cases prosecute a person who is believed to have broken the law.
