Cuisia Vows Help For 500+ Victims

1 BannerWASHINGTON -- Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose L. Cuisia Jr. is urging at least 500 undocumented Filipino teachers in the United States, who were victimized by illegal recruiters, to step out of the shadows so they could be assisted in securing immigration relief and testify in going after the recruiters.

“Our teachers need not be afraid. We are here to help,” Cuisia assured the teachers, many of whom have fallen out of status because they failed to land the promised teaching positions.

The ambassador also assured 25 trafficked Filipino teachers who called on him at the embassy on Wednesday that authorities in the Philippines will continue to seek justice for them by going after the guilty parties.

One of the recruiters, Isidro Rodriguez, is believed to have gone into hiding to avoid multiple cases of illegal recruitment, alien smuggling, visa fraud and human trafficking filed against him in the Philippines and the U.S.
