Keeping the dream of immigration reform alive

As people living in Miami, Florida, and all around the country, eagerly await progress relating to policy reform, many are finding comfort in some of the provisions outlined in proposed legislation. For those that have advocated for such change to U.S. immigration law for years, the Senate’s immigration reform bill recognizes and supports proponents of the Dream Act like no other piece of legislation has in the past.

Families split by immigration status

For many families there is hope that new federal policies will directly benefit them and their loved ones. Though, that hope has not stopped thousands of unauthorized immigrants from being targeted and deported even as state and federal legislatures continue to debate over immigration reform issues. One recent case involving a Florida father’s fifth deportation serves as a sober reminder that discussions and legislation addressing topics like citizenship and immigration carry very real consequences for families around the country.

Path to citizenship makes sense to most Floridians

As legislatures around the country argue every point and potential pitfall of topics like immigration reform, it’s important to bring such issues back down to the grassroots level to gain an accurate understanding of what the people want. After all, the state and federal legislation that may soon be passed to overhaul immigration policies are likely to affect most Americans on some level. A recent study conducted in Florida offers some compelling evidence about how residents feel about offering a path to citizenship to some immigrants already in the country.

Evidence employment immigration pays off

Like so many things, discussions concerning issues like immigration can be impassioned. Millions of people living in the state of Florida and across the country have deeply rooted personal beliefs about immigration, and identify with various political views on the subject. As a result, it can be challenging to divorce emotions from dialogues concerning topics like immigration reform and undocumented workers. That is why professional studies and statistics can be especially helpful in providing an unbiased view of how America is affected by employment immigration in its many capacities.
