Can a judge tell an immigrant that they have the right to an attorney, than ask if they want to proceed with the hearing

Asked over 1 year ago - Hempstead, NY

but not tell them what type of hearing it is? Than when the immigrant says yes, the judge says actually we are doing two hearing. They are doing the master and they say they are doing a bond hearing. They do the bond and give a high one and now won't let the attorney redo the bond hearing because they say they already did it??? But the immigrant didn't know they were waiving the right to have an attorney at their bond
