The fate of the legal immigrant may depend on reform too

As immigrants in the state of Florida and all across the country keep on top of the latest news and ongoing debates over federal reform measures, millions await their fate. Countless individuals, no matter their legal status, may be effected by changes to the U.S. immigration system; and for many of those that have been waiting to become citizens for years, changes cannot come soon enough. Potential updates to current immigration policies could effectively speed the process along for countless people seeking American citizenship.

Securing a financial path to citizenship

As the immigration reform bill continues to dominate the national discussion, countless individuals living in Florida and beyond remain ever mindful that any version of proposed legislation could impact them greatly. And for all of those with hopes of becoming a U.S. citizen, the economic opportunities and difficulties of such a prospect can be intimidating. That's why more and more communities and nonprofit organizations are beginning to plan now for the financial futures of thousands of immigrants.

A lack of H-1B visas sends some employers elsewhere

Dealing with the day-to-day practical implications of not having effective immigration reform in place, many start-up companies in the state of Florida and beyond are looking offshore for a quality workforce. Employment visas are harder to come by than ever, forcing some companies to outsource their work even though they'd rather keep it in the U.S.

Marriage equality means more family immigration

As the dream of legalizing same-sex marriage on the state and federal level becomes a reality for countless couples across the country, so does the opportunity to obtain citizenship. That’s because family immigration policies now recognize the thousands of committed and legally married couples in the LGBT community divided by their citizenship status.
