Does the Constitution guarantee effective assistance of counsel to aliens during removal proceedings

Thanks to my friends over at the Legal Ethics Forum, I have discovered yet another blog to add to my subscription list.  This new blog (well, new for me at least) is all about issues over which the federal appeals courts are split.  Presumably, this makes these issues "ripe for review."

Today, they have posted a short comment (with lots of links) on the fact that circuits disagree on whether the Clause’s guarantee of effective assistance of counsel, a component of due process, applies to aliens during removal proceedings.  You can find it here.
