Georgia Legal Services attorney Cristina Meneses talks work – “Making the U.S. dream a possibility”


The Fulton County Daily Report has profiled Georgia Legal Services attorney Cristina Meneses and her work with immigrant families in rural Georgia.

Cristina is an attorney with the Macon Regional Office that covers 22 mostly rural counties in central Georgia.

During the past nearly two years, I’ve had the opportunity to work almost exclusively with these communities in Middle Georgia. They are farm workers, construction workers, domestic workers, restaurant workers —or, they are desperately looking for work. They are citizens, legal permanent residents and individuals here on work visas. Many have children in school, many receive day wages and many are supporting extended families.

The Daily Report article contains some font character issues in the initial paragraph, likely due to problems with special Spanish-language font characters.  Lite registration is required for the article.  The extra registration steps are worth it.  Take a look at the article.
