This is a right guaranteed by the Constitution. I can see others' reservations to not provide counsel for illegal immigrants, which is understandable and I can cede that. I also see the concern that this would be a money-making scheme for lawyers, but if a state does provide the resources appropriately then there should be no issues. In all, I'm always in favor of legislation that helps solidify the rights we're already guaranteed as citizens. Imagine: What if it was you who couldn't afford a lawyer?
