Religious leaders meet with President over family immigration

While the issue of immigration reform is left to politicians to debate, the impact is felt most by the families in Miami who deal with the uncertainty of their residency on a daily basis. While many immigrants coming to the United States are in search of better opportunities, countless more are simply trying to be reunited with their families. This need to be together with those they love has led many to bypass the process of filing for family visas altogether. While this may reunite them with their loved ones, the solution is only temporary, due to the possibility that any undocumented immigrant faces of being discovered and deported.

Too often, it seems that the issues of immigration and citizenship are dominated by political rhetoric. It is true that these are important policy issues that are currently at the forefront of today’s political debates, yet what’s often forgotten is the human element of it. Seeing the faces of those in Miami working to become citizens and the effort they put into making that happen can often make one forget his or her political leanings of the issue.

Local legislation could reflect a shift in opinion on immigration

The current federal debate over immigration reform may leave some of those Miami hoping for changes discouraged. For years, immigration reform advocates and politicians on both sides of the aisle have been proclaiming that the current U.S. immigration policy needs revising, yet agreeing on those revisions has proven difficult, The biggest obstacle to compromise on this issue seems to be the treatment of the millions of undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. Yet despite the obstacles that recent immigration reform legislation has encountered in Washington, the mere fact that this has become such a hot button topic can be seen as a paradigm shift regarding U.S. immigration law.

House Democrats look to pull an immigration reform power play

As those in Miami who’ve been following the recent federal immigration debate already know, there is concern in Washington that the proposed legislation that was approved by the Senate last year would not be put on the current legislative agenda for the House. Worries have even surfaced that the bill itself has lost all previous momentum. A major part of the proposed legislation was to offer a path to permanent U.S. residency to undocumented farm workers. Those hoping for more movement on that front do, however, have something to be excited about.
