Summary: In 2018, complaints about unscrupulous immigration services jumped by 90% in Los Angeles County — totaling over four million dollars of extortion. Immigrants are prime targets for fraud due to language or resource barriers that may increase their challenges in pursuing relief. AB1753 would allow only federally accredited non-profits and licensed attorneys to provide fee-based immigration services. This bill was not given a floor vote in the Senate.
