THE BRONX - State Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, of the Bronx, is calling for legislation protecting victims of immigration counseling fraud.

The issue of fraudulent counseling is a major concern for more than two million documented and undocumented immigrants in New York.

Scammers offer immigration assistance for high fees, and then fail to help with the individual's case. Crespo's bill has gained the support of dozens of immigrant advocacy groups throughout the state.
