Welcome to Latino Law and Politics!

This website is dedicated to open discussion on social‚ political and legal issues surrounding the Hispanic population in the United States. Latinos‚ or Hispanic-Americans‚ have a long and rich history in the United States. Our presence here is often confused and misunderstood by many Americans and even by many Hispanic-Americans themselves. Unfortunately‚ in today’s society and politics‚ we‚ the Latinos or Hispanic Americans‚ are being used as a weapon by politicians to attack the other political parties and to gain economic benefits from the federal‚ state and local government using us as a shield and excuse‚ but actually not following

FRAUD BY MAJOR COMPANIES – NEED MORE CONGRESS INVESTIGATIONS AND PROSECUTIONS

The list keeps on increasing bringing the prediction made back on the late 60’s to be true. Back at such time‚ a writer (forgot his name) wrote a prediction that the new executive material coming out of major schools were being trained to forget consumer laws‚ forget companies policies of protecting employees and do whatever they could do to benefit personally via bonuses or promotions. The list keeps on increasing due to the electronic age where their greed is being hidden: Volkswagen‚ Wells Fargo Bank (twice now)‚ The Wall Street banks and large companies that received TARP money‚ EZ Rent

CREDIT – BANKS AND CREDIT CARD COMPANIES – The Aggressive Sales Coming Back Again – BEWARE

If you look at the typical advertising now being promoted in almost all web-sites and web engines‚ you will see a major push by the Credit Card Companies to give the consumer (you) a no interest card for a limited time. This process was very typical in the late 90’s and early 2000’s to the point that it contributed to the major Years back‚ I represented couple people who owned “Credit Fixing” companies so the following is a quick warning regarding such work. As their attorney‚¬† I was able to keep them from facing criminal proceedings‚ but they ended having

CANNABIS – POT – MARYJANE – Medical Uses and Research

Recent medical research of the plant called cannabis (marijuana) is bringing information on the different elements of such plant that are beneficial to the patients. Such research is being done in many countries and it will eventually lead to changes on the law for the production and distribution of such derived products. We‚ at JAS.LAW‚ LLC and Sosa and Associates have been researching the corresponding laws in different states in U.S.A. Such studies demonstrate that there still is plenty of fear related to the business models to grow and distribute the plant legally. The fear is based on the fact

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE – LEGAL ADVICE – Doctors and Patients –

Pharmaceutical Companies and manufacturers of medical devices normally employ very able sales force that gets paid a commission on sales. In many cases they provide lunch to doctor’s office staff‚ dinners for doctors‚ and quite often they also do and prepare seminars to promote their sales. Even though some laws have been written to avoid such salesmanship‚ it is commonly used. Products are being provided to the doctors and clinics as “samples” and they are free to the patient. The end result is the promotion of their product line to be used by doctors and clinics. Here is where the

SEXUAL HARASSMENT – REALITY

Sexual harassment has been with us since people became organized in societies. Sex is a natural trait that all animals have‚ including us‚ the human race. The problem for many generations is the sexual abuse by those in power who control jobs‚ control food‚ and other necessities of life. Going back to organized societies like the Romans‚ The Greeks‚ the Vikings and others ancient and recent societies‚ shows it has been with the human race at all times. Now‚ the real truth of Hollywood‚ television‚ sports‚ news media‚ adverting industry‚ as well as any other large organizations providing a way

RUSSIAN CONNECTION – TRUMP ?

We are now getting information and propaganda in the news. Manafort¬† and other people being prosecuted for tax evasion and Russian – Ukrainian money laundering. At this point‚ I am looking forward to prosecution of those who violated the law. On the other hand‚ the facts are always twisted and opinions are inserted trying to place the emphasis on the Trump campaign. So far‚ I have not seen any factual basis that associate the violation of the law with the Trump campaign. Again‚ the main media creating a frontal attack on a president that they do not like. In my

Drug Legal Cartels – Beware

When you have a combination of hungry executives and hungry sales force‚ it is trouble for the consumer and the country. The pharmaceutical industry that has always been in the vanguard of creating life savings drugs‚ has now fallen into the hands of those hungry administrators and the executives selling them through their staff. Recently‚ we are finding out how politicians and former pharmaceutical executives have fallen into the greed of becoming wealthy regardless of the resulting drug addiction being created through the health industry‚ mostly through doctors and hospitals. Most opioids causing an epidemic addiction problem have been prescribed

COMING TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA from MEXICO and other LATINO countries.

It is a shame that many Latino‚ specially Mexicans‚ who come legally (or illegally and became legal) to the United States of America and continue to use the same approach of surviving as they did in their countries. Selling tacos‚ selling pots‚ selling anything that brings very little money and it is never enough to support themselves. They miss the real world that the U.S.A. is a country well protected for the workers. Working for any company (called corporate world or any other name) does provide the needed benefits for a life that allows a working person to buy a

U.S.A. TAX INFORMATION – RETIREMENT PLANS

Do tax plans pay taxes? Most insurance sales people (including the licensing board in California) say no for certain plans. Unfortunately‚ such information is misguided as all income of any kind eventually has to be reported as income and pay taxes accordingly. The Roth plans are normally bought with after tax money and set up so no taxes are paid due to the fact that the money to buy the plan was already reported and paid taxes. BUT – BUT what everyone believes of not being part of your reporting of income‚ it is not quite so. The insurance industry

‚ Castro Stalin and other Dictators"> Hate – Hate Being Promoted by Extremists Following Hitler Castro Stalin and other Dictators

We have seen a major main media attack on the Trump administration. All he is doing is being attacked. Even though many of us do not like him‚ he was chosen as our president by the working class of America and we must disagree‚ but respect him. We have seen a major attack on the rights of liberals to express their opinion as well as the right of conservatives to do likewise. Propaganda machines established by the main media with whatever method they use. A year ago‚ all the advertising for what people can get from the government was labelled:
