Editorial Reviews

Criticas

Cortés, president and executive director of Esperanza USA, the largest religiously oriented Hispanic corporation for community development in the United States, brings us a new title in the complex matter of immigration. In his introduction, he writes that his aim is mainly to help others better understand and navigate the complicated system of U.S. immigration law. He collaborated with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center to come up with much of this material and offer well-grounded pointers. The book is divided into nine brief chapters that sensibly answer mostly hypothetical questions, such as "How can a family member already in the United States help me gain legal admittance?" or "What are the consequences of reporting sexual abuse or violence by individuals whose status is not clearly defined?" Matters revolving around obtaining a green card are examined in detail, as are other important facts about the green card once obtained. A final section deals with deportation and detention. This slim and useful book is mainly directed at readers who wish to legalize their migratory status to one that is correct, beneficial, and flexible. It would have benefited from the inclusion of appendixes listing key web sites and local centers working with this population. Even so, this practical guide is recommended for all libraries and bookstores.-Catherine Rendón, Savannah, GA
