Latino Immigrant RightsNovember 8th, 2010 by michelleb
Latino immigrants feel they have no rights in the U.S. because they are undocumented. This is a situation that occurs constantly, due to the lack of knowledge or information available for Latinos.
There is an increasing amount of web sites that publish articles, laws, news, medical information, etc., that may be helpful for Latinos who do not know their rights or need information, or that inform them where to obtain information on more specific topics.
Below is a list of web site that provide useful information regarding the most important issues for Latino immigrants.
• As an immigrant, what are my rights in a situation of domestic violence?
• What I can do if I am in an abusive relationship?
• How I can legalize my status? What are there options?
• Help for HIV / AIDS patients in an abusive relationships in the Latino community.
The American Diabetes Association provides online information about this disease, as well as links to support groups and legal resources. The site also contains a list of lawyers and legal resources available to Hispanics.
Latinos have the right to receive information and help, but they also have a moral obligation to seek out information and investigate where and who can help them.Tags: immigrant rights, Latino community, Latino immigrants
