Mexican Consulates Offer FREE Legal Help

SF Gate

Mexican citizens living in Northern California can now get free legal help 24 hours a day through a hot line launched by the Bay Area’s Mexican Consulates.

A collaboration among the consulates in San Francisco, San Jose and Sacramento, the round-the-clock advice line is called Jurimex.

“It’s a very important way of extending consular protection to Mexican citizens that goes beyond the limits of our own resources,” said Agustin Pradillo, spokesman for the consulate in San Francisco. “It’s a 911 for Mexicans.”

Callers will speak with a lawyer or paralegal who can handle questions related to immigration, labor law, family law, and civil and criminal matters.

    It is so ironical that illigal alliens break US immigration laws and demand the US laws to protect their rights. How about the rights for deportations ?

    Isn’t it beyond the Mexican Consulates diplomatic scope to be counseling illegal immigrants on further violating U.S. laws?
