NY attorney general Schneiderman sets up $2.2-million fund to reimburse those deceived by two nonprofits that exploited immigrants seeking legal residence.

"New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office has established a $2.2-million fund for immigrants seeking restitution from two nonprofit groups that collected payments with false promises of securing legal status for clients, the New York Daily News and Reuters report. The now-shuttered International Immigrants Foundation and International Professional Association were led by Eduardo Juarez, a prominent figure in Spanish-language media who dispensed immigration advice on television and radio and in a newspaper column." -- the Chronicle of Philanthropy
