Mark Barr of Lichter & Associates in Denver, Colorado has taken the residency case of a Pueblo farm worker
Jose Moises Cerros, a Mexican immigrant, says he has worked in the United States for several decades. Cerros, now 94, retired ten years ago. With no taxes such as Social Security paid to the government, Mr. Cerros has little help from the state in his advanced age. Under the Ronald Reagan 1986 Amnesty Act, he would qualify for some government assistance. However, the lack of much US paperwork, coupled with the misfortune of having his Mexican birth certificate stolen by a burglar leaves Mr. Cerros stalled in his attempts to prove residency.
All that is required is proof that Cerros lived in the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s. A woman from Fort Garland has signed an affidavit that her deceased husband probably knew Cerros. Her recollection of events fits with Cerros’. But because the woman only knows Cerros through the kind words of others, Barr will require more evidence or witnesses. Such support could include photographs, sworn statements from friends or co-workers, or even just a few more people who knew Cerros from years ago.
