Review for Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Trenton, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with LALDEF is that it is managed by Maria Juega very well. This organization shows up at many local organizations' conferences and helps residents of this state understand the plight of both documented and undocumented immigrants impacted by Homeland Security as well as local police departments. Immigrants of many countries enrich the economy and the diversity in New Jersey. When immigrants suffer abuse or are threatened by deportation, this organization makes certain that they are well represented. On request, Ms. Juega goes out of her way to be helpful. While I was teaching a college course named Issues in Intercultural Communication, I saw in the local paper an article on an immigrant student who was honored for leading his high school graduating class academically. She helped me locate him (when all other attempts failed) and he agreed to speak to my class about his immigration experiences so my students would understand the difficulty many persons experience.
