LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST

SB 6, as amended, Hueso. Immigrants: removal proceedings: legal services.
Existing law requires the State Department of Social Services, subject to the availability of funding, to contract with qualified nonprofit legal services organizations to provide legal services to unaccompanied, undocumented minors, as defined, who are transferred to the care and custody of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and who are present in this state. Existing law requires that the contracts awarded meet certain conditions.
This bill would require the department to either contract with qualified nonprofit legal services organizations, or contract with a nonprofit agency to administer funding to nonprofit legal services organization subcontractors, to provide legal services to detained individuals in removal proceedings who are not otherwise entitled to legal representation under an existing local, state, or federal program. The bill would also authorize the department to award contracts to provide legal services for nondetained individual in removal proceedings if sufficient funds are appropriated for that purpose. authorize the department to prioritize the award of contracts to provide legal services to detained individuals in removal proceedings and would also authorize the department to prioritize the award of contracts to qualified nonprofit legal services organizations that also receive county or city funding to provide legal services to individuals in removal proceedings. The bill would require the contracts awarded pursuant to this act to meet certain conditions. The bill would also authorize the department to contract with organizations to provide legal training and technical assistance to qualified nonprofit legal services organizations, to provide postconviction relief services to immigrants, and to provide case coordination and placement services to ensure that all individuals in removal proceedings receive representation in a timely fashion. The bill would establish the California Universal Representation Trust Fund to accept donations from private foundations and other philanthropic entities for the purpose of expanding the number of individuals that may be provided legal services pursuant to these provisions. The bill would appropriate an unspecified sum from the General Fund to the department, and would require the department to adopt emergency regulations, for the purpose of implementing these provisions.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
