Bogus Church Isn’t a Lawyer, Texas Says

Bogus Church Isn’t a Lawyer, Texas Says

August 24, 2011


HOUSTON (CN) – Texas says a woman is practicing immigration law without a license, telling suckers she can legalize them as religious workers if they join her “church” – and that at least 300 people have fallen for it.

     The Texas attorney general sued Yolanda Salazar Perez and her “church,” Nueva Uncion, or the New Anointing Biblical Institute, and three of her alleged cohorts, who are members of her family, in Harris County Court.

People need to be very careful of scams. There are people out there who say they can ‘fill out a form’ for you. Immigration is not just ‘filing out forms.’ There is law to it.  Be careful.
