Major wording change in mission statement of citizenship services

Florida is home to thousands of immigrants who arrive here from other countries of origin with various types of legal statuses.

City and county at odds in real estate disputes in another state

If a particular Florida county owns property within a particular Florida city's limits, it's logical to assume the two governing bodies would have to be willing to cooperate and compromise if any legal complications arise regarding their business relationship. That's not always possible, however, as made evident by ongoing city versus county real estate disputes in another state. Many voices have weighed in on the topic. Some say it's not so much that the county wants to allow a new business to open on its property; rather, it's the type of business that has people upset.

US immigration law officers come down hard on man who called cops

Most Florida residents may assume that if they call police upon seeing intruders on their property, officers will be dispatched to investigate their situations. This is apparently what a man living in another state thought when he placed a recent call for help. However, instead of obtaining the assistance he was seeking, he wound up being arrested and handed over to U.S. immigration law officers.

When it rains it pours: Condominium facing more water problems

Stepping into a new position as president of a commercial complex with a long list of existing complaints and liens against the property would sound to most Florida residents like a very stressful job. But that's just what happened to a man who took over as president of a large condominium complex in another state. In fact, when he assumed his position, he was facing problems regarding nonpayment of water and sewage bills, broken windows and stairs, and life-safety code violations among other complaints.

When US immigration law officers knock on your door

Many Florida residents also happen to be immigrants, some of whom entered the United States without having appropriate paperwork in order. Reasons for this may vary although thousands of people have shared experiences that involve fleeing from violence, poverty or other imminent dangers. Such circumstances often bring many challenges to family life, including what to do if U.S. immigration law officials knock on the door when immigrants are at home.

The situation has been ongoing for months and several attempts to rectify the problems have proved unsuccessful.

Younger generation weighs in on US immigration law issue

Millennials recently voiced their opinions regarding various immigration topics. U.S. immigration law is definitely a controversial subject.

A 33-year-old man in Florida came to the United States some 14 years ago on a crewman's visa. For some reason, he reportedly did not obtain an adjustment of status once that visa expired.
