The Project

Cynthia Tyler worked towards universal representation for unaccompanied minors in removal proceedings. While representing the minors, Cynthia Tyler hoped to make the immigration court more efficient. Unaccompanied minors are among the most vulnerable populations of immigrants, as many of them are fleeing violence and poverty. This work is important to connect them to services and help them achieve their goals in living a better life.
