Documentary premiere to raise awareness of the legal process New Mexico immigrants must follow to become U.S. citizens.
The Attorney General’s Office participated in the making of this documentary partly to raise awareness about our own Immigrant Consumer Services unit. Also, the short video is considered a valuable community education project.
While immigration policy is largely a federal issue, New Mexico Attorney General Gary King helps ensure that state laws are followed and immigrants are not treated unfairly or unlawfully. New Mexico’s immigrant community deserves protection of its basic rights as consumers and residents.
This English-subtitled documentary examines the kinds of services available to someone trying to navigate through the legal maze, with special attention paid to the pitfalls facing those who do not know the language and who are unfamiliar with their rights or the scams targeting immigrants.
The documentary is titled:
Laberinto Legal de la Frontera...The Immigrant and the Law.
