Florida-backed lawsuits stalls Obama immigration plan

A lawsuit brought against the Obama administration by 26 states produced a ruling stating that President Obama's executive authority did not override the authority of Congress. The presiding judge likened the president's initiatives to a genie in a bottle and criticized the Obama administration for not opening the programs to public input or commentary prior to the attempt at implementation.

President Obama announces immigration plan

Employers must follow strict standards when hiring immigrants

Since Florida is a popular destination for immigrants, it is imperative that employers keep tabs on the legal status of those individuals who are working for them. The state's immigration law statutes make several requirements of employers when it comes to verification and storage of workers' data.

United States deporting fewer immigrants

Individuals in Florida who wish to remain permanently in the United States may be interested to learn that deportation numbers are dropping. In 2014, the fewest number of immigrants since at least 2007 will be deported from the country. This will be the case despite the fact that President Obama is delaying until after the November 2014 elections the implementation of policies that could lead to even fewer deportations.

How a migrant child may be granted asylum in the U.S.

The fact that child migrants come from dangerous places is not enough for them to be granted asylum here in the U.S. In order to gain permission to stay, migrant children must demonstrate that they face direct persecution because of an affiliation with a specific group. Children who do not fit into that category often apply for Special Immigrant Juveniles Status instead.

Immigrants celebrate citizenship in Miami

During a naturalization ceremony that occurred in Little Havana in Miami on June 5, it was announced that the month of June would be called Immigrant Heritage Month. The month was given this name by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in order to honor those who have immigrated to the United States. At the ceremony, 50 people from all over the world were selected to be sworn in as citizens of the U.S. Unlike most ceremonies, this particular event honored the previous generations of immigrants who were instrumental in the shaping of the state of Florida and the nation.

Florida veteran discovers he isn't a citizen

A 58-year-old Florida man who served in the army during the Vietnam War recently discovered that he is not a U.S. citizen after he tried to apply for a passport. According to authorities, there was no record of him as a citizen or permanent resident. Immigration officials are currently reviewing the man's case and plan to meet with him on May 20.

U.S. House considers sweeping immigration bill

Leading Florida Democrats have joined forces with immigration advocates to push for federal legislation that would make it easier to seek citizenship for those in the country illegally. The House of Representatives has been considering a sweeping new immigration law, but the Republican majority is against some aspects of the bill.

Officials deny papal role in release of immigrant from custody

Some Florida residents might be disappointed by the claim of U.S. officials that the temporary release of a Mexican national from a detention facility has nothing to do with the pope. The man's 10-year-old daughter had traveled from the United States to the Vatican with a group of children of undocumented workers to ask the pope to speak to President Obama about their parents' plights. When the girl had a chance to speak to the pope, she told him her father was suffering.
