Florida immigrants register for upcoming presidential election

Every four years, Americans have the right to vote for a candidate for president that they believe best serves their views. Many natural citizens do not think twice about this privilege. However, in many countries, democracy is not practiced. Democracy is what makes our country great because it gives the rights to citizens to elect office officials.

Thinking of immigrating extended family to Florida, we can help

When loves ones live overseas, it can be very hard seeing them only once or a few times a year. The American dream is still alive and well, but that doesn't mean those who seek it do not have to make sacrifices. One of the sacrifices people often make after immigrating to America is the distance from beloved family members. Now that one is established in Miami, it may be time to think about beginning the immigration process for loves ones located in other countries.

Does military service provide benefits under US immigration law?

Throughout this country's history immigrants have volunteered to serve in the U.S. armed forces. Many have given their lives for this country. In Florida there are many veterans who joined the military as immigrants. For them and their family members, military service has often been a first step on the road to becoming a U.S. citizen.

When lack of informed consent leads to medical malpractice

Florida patients have some important legal rights when they seek medical treatment. One of the most important of these is the right to informed consent. This means that before submitting to a course of treatment or a medical procedure, the doctor must advise the patient of the benefits, risks and alternatives and then get the patient's consent before proceeding.

Most Florida residents who follow immigration news are probably aware that the Obama administration has carried out more deportations of undocumented immigrants than either the Bush or Clinton administrations. Deportations began to rise in 1996 and increased significantly after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, which led to the devotion of greater resources to immigration enforcement.

Florida's fictional medical malpractice crisis

For years insurance companies and their allies in the state legislature have been spreading a fiction that Florida is in a medical malpractice lawsuit crisis. According to the insurance companies, doctors have been fleeing the state and those who remain have been forced to practice "defensive medicine" and avoid performing many procedures, all because of skyrocketing malpractice lawsuits. The insurers' PR strategy has been very successful, and the fable of a medical profession beset by frivolous litigation has become widely accepted. But, as data from the National Practitioner Data Bank shows, it's a myth.

Pursuing justice when a drunk driver causes a fatal accident

Drunk driving is a serious problem in Florida. Police and prosecutors are doing all they can to keep drunk drivers off the road. The penalties for drunk driving are more severe today than they have ever been, and years of public awareness campaigns have educated the public about the dangers of intoxicated driving. And yet there are still some people who don't get the message, and they continue to cause accidents - many of them fatal.
