There would be two phone calls needed per child. If the legal centers in urban areas would take the responsibility for locating a social service that does volunteer work with immigrants, an advocate without legal training could appear in court with a child and request that no decision to deport the child is made without legal training. Another call would be to legal agencies that do pro-bono work, to request that a lawyer who lives at a less distant location from the child to make a court appearance. Even if the lawyer is not as skilled in immigration services as attorneys in the urban centers, their help would definitely be more than nothing.

This has resulted in the effective elimination of views in opposition of whatever an author pens.
