Judge demands U.S. immigration law reform in another state

Many immigrants arrive at U.S. borders, hoping to be granted entrance to Florida or other states under the process of asylum.

Man deported instead of receiving adjustment of status

Many Florida immigrants have been living in the United States under a temporary protection legal status. When the program that provides the status was effectively ended by the current presidential administration, thousands of immigrants in this state and throughout the nation began to worry whether adjustment of status would be possible or if they would get deported.
