On Thursday, December 11th 2014 CMS Staff Rev. Patrick Keating, Robert McCreanor, Alice Davis, and Quetzalli Rocha met with Ambassador Fuentes, Mario Cuevas, and Johannes Jacome, representatives of the Mexican Consulate. Throughout the meeting participants discussed the Immigrant Workers’ Rights Program (IWRP) and the program’s hotline, Linea Laboral. Nearly half of Linea Laboral callers are from Mexican nationals and since May 2014 59% of the cases sent through Linea Laboral to government agencies have been from Mexican citizens. The Mexican consulate has been a powerful ally in promoting the Linea Laboral hotline. Linea Laboral has been successful in addressing the needs of immigrant workers across the New York tri-state area, responding to 355 calls since May. CMS thanks the Mexican Consulate for their contribution to Linea Laboral!
