Immigrants Swindled

Listen Now

Leaders of this Pueblo church trusted the immigration attorney from Nebraska, Jerre Moreland.

Today, the story of a swindle. And the victims may lose a lot more than money. In Southern Colorado, immigrants, here illegally, hired an attorney who promised them a legal way to stay. He turned out to be a crook. Now more than 70 of his clients in Colorado, and more than 1,000 across the west, face deportation. From Pueblo, CPR’s Zachary Barr reports.
