Immigrant status for some Canadians may soon change

A large demographic of international tourists may soon be granted more access to visit the United States if new laws go into effect. The passage of the landmark immigration reform bill would, among other things, allow older Canadians to remain in the States for the majority of the year, which proponents hope would drive tourism and home sales in Florida and beyond.

Deferred status immigrants granted tuition cut at one university

One Florida university is making efforts to address the needs of a large demographic of its students by allowing those that came to the country without documentation as children to attend school at the resident rate.

Major combatant of illegal immigration halted

While people living in Miami, Florida, and cities across the country have opinions and ideas about politics, news and other national issues, those in law enforcement and other high-profile positions often have the resources and platform necessary to be heard and make a difference. In fact, many prominent public figures build a career out of publicizing their beliefs. And some become known, notorious even, for putting those beliefs into action. One such nationally-known lawman is being scrutinized for his approach to addressing immigration issues in his jurisdiction after years of making headlines and causing controversy.

Immigration and social services: fact v. fiction

When young and new workers begin paying into benefit programs like Medicare and Social Security, they often do so under the assumption that at retirement age they will ultimately collect the same amount they contributed over the years. And while this concept isn’t entirely wrong, it doesn’t account for factors like inflation and population growth. Such elements influence the amount beneficiaries are entitled to, and often result in individuals receiving more in social services than they ever contributed. If that’s the case, though, then why hasn’t the entire system imploded by now? Some argue that immigration is keeping it afloat.
