Florida Attorney General's Office is investigating Haitian group that helped illegal immigrants apply for asylum in Canada
By Abby Goodnough

The state’s 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 general’s 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.
