CONSUMER ADVISORY:

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S IMMIGRATION ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT AN AMNESTY. IT DOES NOT GRANT LEGAL STATUS OR WORK PERMITS. IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN SIGN-UP FOR! THERE IS NO “SAFE" WAY TO TURN YOURSELF IN TO IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES. CONSULT AN IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY ABOUT YOUR IMMIGRATION CASE OR STATUS. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE AUGUST 18, 2011 IMMIGRATION ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, READ A CONSUMER ADVISORY FROM THE AMERICAN IMMIGRATION LAWYERS ASSOCIATION HERE.

STOP NOTARIO FRAUD

Don’t become a victim of dishonest immigration consultants often known as “notarios." Immigration consultants, notary publics, and notarios cannot represent you in the immigration process. These people—especially notarios—prey on immigrants, often from the same ethnic community as the notarios themselves.

NOTARIOS WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR DREAMS!

Many noncitizens find out that they will never get their green card or other immigration benefits because an unqualified immigration consultant or notario unlawfully working as an immigration lawyer destroyed their dreams.

PROTECT YOUR FAMILY’S DREAMS

To avoid fraud, use your common sense. Many people hear what they want to hear—be smart! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t believe it if someone tells you about a secret new immigration law or claims to have connections or special influence with any government office or agency. Follow these simple guidelines.

Take action to get help and stop the notario from harming others!

If you have been harmed by a notario or an immigration consultant, you can take action that may help you and stop the person from harming others.
