NY ATTORNEY GENERAL SHUTS DOWN THREE NOTARIO OPERATIONS; SUES THREE OTHERS

Rate this Entry

The latest in the crackdown nationally on immigration services firms that are operating fraudulently.

Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that his Office has
shut down three New York companies providing unauthorized and
fraudulent legal services to immigrant communities, in the latest
stages of his ongoing investigation into immigration fraud. Under the
terms of the agreements secured by Cuomo's Office, Immigration
Solutions and Systems, Inc. of New York, Alisandra Multiservices, Inc.
of Brentwood, Long Island, and All Immigration Services of Great Neck,
Long Island are permanently barred from operating a business that
provides immigration-related services and must collectively pay
approximately $118,000 in penalties

Cuomo also announced separate lawsuits filed today in New York State
Supreme Court against three additional companies providing legal
services to immigrants which they were neither authorized nor
accredited to provide. According to the lawsuits filed today in New
York State Supreme Court, Immigration Community Service Corporation of
Manhattan, and Professional Solutions Consultants (doing business as
Reliable Clerical Services and Reliable Immigration Services), and
Centro Santa Ana, both located in Queens, offered legal counsel to
immigrants without being licensed attorneys or having the proper
accreditation. In thousands of cases across New York City and Long
Island, these companies unlawfully filed immigration petitions with
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on behalf of
immigrants and their families, jeopardizing efforts to obtain legal
status.

*****

The lawsuits against Immigration Community Service Corporation,
Professional Solutions Consultants, and Centro Santa Ana allege that
the companies and their owners not only gave unlicensed legal advice
and fraudulently filed petitions with USCIS, but also failed to provide
consumers with written contracts in both the consumer's native language
and English, as required by law. The lawsuits seek to permanently bar
the companies and their owners from providing immigration-related
services in the future and seek penalties for these actions.

Senator Jose M. Serrano (D-Manhattan/Bronx) said: "Attorney General
Cuomo has led the fight against abusive and illegal companies like
these that take advantage of NY's immigrant communities. His continued
efforts are giving a voice to thousands of New Yorkers whose rights
have been ignored for too long."

Assemblyman Adriano Espaillat (D-Manhattan) said: "New York was
built on the backs of immigrant communities. We owe our very history to
those brave individuals and families who left their homes to pursue the
promise and opportunity this State has to offer. I applaud Attorney
General Cuomo's ongoing fight to protect the diversity that defines us,
and remain committed to working with his Office as these efforts
continue."

    Now if he would go after the ******** illegal or the criminal illegal aliens as aggresive we, as a nation, would be a lot better off. We do not allow bank robbers to rob time and again without doing something to them; why let the illegal have baby after baby without one word of deportion. Why let the kids go to school if the parents are illegal. Our laws only aid the rich and powerful the poor tax payers always get the shaft.This is proof the legal lawyers did not like to let the illegals get info. without paying them first. Cumo if you mean what you are saying I expect that in a week or two NYC will have at least 2 to 3 million fewer illegal aliens. Frank Bowers
