Vice has an article out today about how bad notarios are. Here in Tucson, we often see that notarios often charge as much as actual lawyers, but have none of the legal training. We have clients come in every week with cases that a notario has messed up. But messy cases are the least of our worries– the worse are when notarios give advice that actually leads to deportations. How these people can continue to operate and still sleep at night is something I will never understand.
At last some good news. A touching article from Aatish Taseer on how getting a green card made him finally feel at home in the world. Read this article in the Wall Street Journal for Taseer’s moving tale.
