Dear Editor:
As you might have heard, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott recently shut down two large "notario" scams in South Texas: Uresti Immigration and Trámites Migratorios. The businesses are believed to have defrauded hundreds of immigrants. The Office of the Texas Attorney General worked in cooperation with Hidalgo County and Cameron County District Attorneys, who are pursuing criminal charges against the principals. The Texas Attorney General also filed independent civil lawsuits pursuant to the State Deceptive Trade Practices Act, and courts in the two counties granted the Texas Attorney General's request for a temporary injunction against the businesses. This is the first time that I know of that the "notario" criminal statute is being applied, as amended in the Government Code in 2001.

Paul Parsons, Chair
State Bar of Texas Committee on Laws Relating to Immigration & Nationality
