Bill to regulate ‘immigration consultants’ introduced in Utah Senate

A Salt Lake senator has introduced a bill that regulates “immigration consultants” by requiring them to register with the state, post bonds and provide translation service to clients.
SB144, sponsored by Sen. Luz Robles, D-Salt Lake, would also require consultants to undergo criminal background checks. The bill was introduced in the Senate Monday morning.
The Immigration Consultants Registration Act also sets up application requirements for consultants; requires accounting for services and a process for clients to recover losses if agents do not provider the services as promised. This regulation would apply to people who are non-lawyers.
