New immigration reform bill would eliminate visas for siblings

Going all the way back to the European discovery of the North American continent, a popular immigration pattern has been for one member of a family to set out for America, seek his or her fortune, and lay down some permanent roots. Then, once the time is right, the rest the family then joins him or her in their new homeland. Such a pattern continues in Miami and other areas across the U.S. Yet once the issue of immigration reform is resolved in Washington, this method of family immigration could be altered forever.

Vets recognized for service to the United States

Recent rumblings from Washington haven't been too promising for those in Miami hoping that immigration reform would be addressed by the House during the current legislative session. While the Senate passed new legislation that specifically identified a path to U.S. citizenship for the over 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living here, those reforms were bogged down by Congressional debates. Now, with only 15 days left in the current session, and a potential fiscal crisis again looming when Congress reconvenes in 2014, many fear that the issue is in danger of being shelved altogether.

Current immigration reform plans could be dead, says Diaz-Balart

Many in Miami have followed the recent federal debate over immigration reform with great interest. Florida's own Mario Diaz-Balart has been at forefront of this debate, often breaking away from the popular opinion of many of his fellow GOP colleagues in pushing for major reforms that would provide for an immediate path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, among other changes.

People’s feelings are often mixed on those who immigrated to the U.S. illegally. One the one hand, they may understand these immigrant’s desires to enjoy the benefits and opportunities available to themselves and their families here. At the same time, most in Miami also recognize the need to follow the proper legal channels in order to enter the country, and that the failure by many to do so has led to many of the immigration restrictions that we see today. Yet those mixed feelings haven’t stopped many public and private organizations from offering assistance to illegals to help in improving their lives and those of the people in their communities, whether they remain in the U.S. or return to their native countries.
