|Florida Attorney General's Office is investigating Haitian
group that helped illegal immigrants apply for asylum in Canada
The states attorney general is reviewing a group in Naples that helped illegal
immigrants apply for asylum in Canada for up to $400 each.
A spokeswoman for the attorney generals office said another organization, Freedom
House, an immigrant advocacy group in Detroit, complained last week about the Naples
group, the Jerusalem Haitian Community Center.
A Freedom House official asked that the center be investigated for possibly practicing
law without a license, misinforming refugees and misrepresenting itself as having a
relationship with Freedom House.
