Although general attitudes towards immigration are commonly researched, less is known about public opinion toward government-funded attorneys in immigration court. To explore public opinion on this issue, Vera is partnering with the survey firm Lucid to conduct public opinion polls about government-funded counsel in several communities across the United States. Although the research is ongoing, the findings thus far show widespread support for government-funded counsel in immigration court.

This page will continue to be updated with the results from additional communities as the research is completed.
