KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Legal Newsline) - Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced a court order on Friday against a Wyandotte County-based immigration services company for allegedly violating the state's Consumer Protection Act.
Under the terms of the court order, Centro Migratorio Inc., also known as Peoples Centro Migratorio, is banned from business activities in the state of Kansas, including performing, soliciting, advertising, accepting payments for and supervising business conduct.
The order was issued by Wyandotte County District Judge David W. Boal.
"Companies that operate in the state of Kansas must follow all the consumer protection laws of our state," Schmidt said. "Our office will not allow companies that engage in misleading or illegal activity to continue business practices."
Centro Migratorio offered translation and immigration services.
Schmidt's office alleged that Centro Migratorio allegedly engaged in the unauthorized practice of law and other deceptive practices connected to its immigration services in violation of the state's Consumer Protection Act. Schmidt's office sought a court order as a result of Centro Migratorio's alleged repeated failure to obey subpoenas.
The injunction against Centro Migratorio will stay in place until the company complies substantially with the previously issued subpoenas.
