Work Visa Warning - Cindy Carter reporter WZTV Fox 17/Nashville

Some undocumented Hispanics who are hoping a work visa will keep them in Tennessee legally believe they are getting ripped off. Immigration attorneys say they are worried about people claiming to be attorneys and charging clients up to 10-thousand dollars for work visas.

The problem is, these visas have been extremely hard to come by since the passage of tougher immigration laws back in 2001. Relatively few have been issued in the last seven years yet many Hispanics are still paying top dollar for paperwork that never arrives.

Immigration attorney, Mario Ramos says, "Its easy for people to prey on that dream and basically take advantage of them."

Hispanics are pushing for more law enforcement. Unfortunately, victims are often afraid to come forward for fear of deportation
