Undocumented law school graduate seeks admission to Florida bar

When people read about undocumented immigrants, their first impression may be that these immigrants are primarily agricultural workers. While this may be true for older immigrants, younger undocumented immigrants in Miami and elsewhere are seeking higher education, attending U.S. universities and hoping to enter the professional workforce. With the potential of the DREAM Act -- an immigration program designed to assist children who were brought to the country illegally -- to someday become law, these people have been given a glimmer of hope that someday they will be able to work in any industry or profession that they wish.

Florida groups plan events in support of new immigration system

Miami's history is a rich one, filled with thousands of stories of immigrants who came with dreams of a better life. Many immigrants still flock to this vibrant community to build new lives for themselves and their families. However, for those who came here illegally years ago, the chances of them ever becoming a citizen are slim. This is despite the fact that they have raised their children here, paid taxes and even created businesses.

Florida politician calls for citizenship program for immigrants

As a new year begins, many immigrants are expressing hope that the president will initiate stronger reform for those who came here illegally so that they can remain in the country. Right now, millions of illegal immigrants still live in fear that they will be taken into custody by immigration and deported. Another concern for thousands of immigrant families regards the children who were brought to the U.S. and those who were born here. If current immigration law remains in place, these families could be torn apart as parents are deported.

Feds move immigration deadline for Haitian nationals

The U.S. government has often shown generosity to people who have been persecuted in their native country or have been devastated by a natural disaster. Nationals from other countries are often allowed to come here to work and live for a time. Some people come to Miami with the intent to return to their native country and work with this goal in mind. Others choose to stay here on a more permanent basis, seeking to become a legal permanent resident. Among groups who have found the door to the U.S. open are the victims of the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.

Mexican government approaches U.S. court over immigration law

For the last several years, many states have expressed frustration over the U.S. government's lack of action involving immigration. Indeed, even residents in Miami and the state of Florida are divided over exactly what should be done with the millions of undocumented aliens living in the states. Some states have taken it upon themselves to pass their own laws under criticism that these laws violate the rights of residents, even those who are here legally. Now the Mexican government has chosen to voice its displeasure.
