Will proposed immigration changes help Florida farm workers?

As our readers are probably already aware, Florida has multiple farms producing tomatoes, oranges and other produce. These farms rely on employment immigration for the manpower needed to harvest the fruit and vegetables. Without the influx of employment-based immigration, these farms would likely fail as there are few citizens willing to take on the physically taxing, low-paying labor. While proposed immigration law reform seeks to address the millions of immigrants that live illegally in the U.S., there is some concern among this group that they will be ignored by lawmakers.

Citizenship only option for alien immigrants, activists say

As the immigration overhaul campaign picks up speed and more supporters, many people in Florida and around the country are still opposed to giving millions of immigrants who live here in the U.S. illegally a way to attain citizenship without going through the process of returning to their home country. Many meetings have been taking place in our nation's capital these past few weeks to iron out details in proposed legislation designed to address the issue, but for those groups pushing for major changes there is only one choice that they will accept: giving these immigrants a path to U.S. citizenship.

Business and labor leaders join to support immigration overhaul

There are many people and groups who are eagerly waiting for President Obama and Congress to make major changes to the current laws regarding immigrants illegally living in the United States. As momentum continues to build, Floridians are seeing local politicians, religious leaders and others pushing for an immigration law overhaul.

Florida senator encourages path to citizenship for immigrants

Florida has become a powerful voice in the debate over whether undocumented immigrants should be given a legal residency status. Many of these immigrants are hopeful that the DREAM Act will lead to further changes and new laws that will enable them to claim permanent residency and eventually become U.S. citizens. Still, there is the possibility, until such changes are made, that they will be taken into federal custody and deported.
