Recently, the Department of Justice sent out a memo reminding all US courts of the American people’s basic constitutional rights. The DOJ reminded the courts that raising revenue from poor defendants and imprisoning them w/o proper counsel in civil and criminal cases is illegal.

The refusal to fund public defense has resulted in the unlawful imprisonment of millions of Americans unable to afford lawyers.
