Supreme Court rules on controversial immigration law

The past couple weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for immigration policy in the United States. As we reported last week, President Obama recently announced that his administration would halt deportations of undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children and meet certain other criteria. Instead, they will have the opportunity to apply for work permits.

Stories about families struggling with immigration issues in Florida can be especially devastating for the children involved, who in many cases were born in the United States and know no other home. What is frustrating for so many of these families is that most of the time immigration authorities are involved in the destruction of families in favor of immigration laws rather than family law. Family law predominantly dictates that the courts make decisions regarding children based on what is in their best interest, not what is in the best interest of some other area of law.
