ICE employment verification I-9 audits rise in 2012

Immigration reform has been a hot topic in the media this year. Immigration policy issues have also grabbed headlines, as stories have arisen over the Deferred Action program for young immigrants and the federal immigration policy in deportation and removal proceedings known as prosecutorial discretion.

Will 3-year-old have to leave the country under US immigration law?

Obviously, there have been many stories in the media recently discussing immigration reform in the United States. However, few stories seem to look at the process of immigration. How do immigrants enter America-and why? It seems, at times, that the public debate misses part of the whole story. Not long ago, this blog discussed the plight of a teen who did not want to leave the country in which she grew up.

Ocala fatal hit-and-run might warrant wrongful death claim

Accidents on Florida's roadways can result in severe injury and even death. Drivers leaving the scene of a car accident without providing contact information or contacting authorities may face additional charges if caught and found responsible for the accident or negligent in their actions. An Orlando woman was arrested after allegedly leaving the scene of an accident recently that killed two and injured two on I-75 in Florida.

Immigrants displaced by hurricane avoid assistance programs

Many residents of Florida are acutely aware of the difficulties a hurricane can have on day to day in the aftermath of the storm. Reports of the Superstorm Sandy made national headlines as the hurricane swept up the East Coast. Now immigrants who live in states struck by the hurricane are dealing with the kinds of unique difficulties that immigrants can face in the United States.

Though no injuries, truck accident closes Palmetto Expressway

An accident involving a truck often leaves someone suffering from injuries. But such an accident does not have to cause serious injuries to disrupt life for Miami residents. Sometimes, inattentive truck drivers can cause entire roads to shut down. This was clearly seen in a truck accident recently affecting the Palmetto Expressway.

Stem Jobs Act meets resistance on Capitol Hill

The first post-election bill addressing potential immigration reform has been stalled in the United States Senate. The measure started in the House and was aimed at allowing immigrants with science and tech degrees taken from American universities to seek a visa to remain in the country after graduation. However, the House bill did not seek to increase overall visas under immigration law.

Florida Supreme Court ruling may affect accident litigation

For the past 50 years, any Florida resident who rear-ended another driver was presumed to have been negligent. But a recent ruling by the Florida Supreme Court may allow these drivers a better chance at sharing blame then they previously had. Miami residents who are involved in car or motorcycle accident litigation should understand what this ruling and other Florida laws could mean for their case.
