Latino Advocacy Group Investigates Immigrant 'Dumping' by U.S. Employers
Date:10/31/2007

NOGALES, Mexico, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Consejo de Latinos Unidos, a U.S. not-for-profit organization and public charity which educates and assists Latinos and others, and government officials of the Mexican State of Sonora disclosed at a news conference today the launch of an international investigative study focusing on immigrant "dumping" which began on October 1st.
