Miami-Dade report shows investment in educating immigrant children

When people read stories about immigration and the desire to provide citizenship to alien residents, they often fail to remember that families and children will be greatly impacted by what is decided. Thousands of children are brought into the country each year and put into American schools in order to get an education. For many immigrants, family immigration is a way for them to give their children a better life than the one that they had, and few would likely fault them for that desire.

Same-sex couple challenges DOMA's impact on U.S. immigration law

A legally married lesbian couple recently filed a federal lawsuit hoping to stop the deportation of one of the spouses, a green card holder originally from the Philippines. The original basis for the Phillipina spouse's green card has been challenged, and she is now slated for deportation.

Florida Haitians call for passage of family-based visas

It's been two years since an earthquake ravaged the small impoverished island of Haiti killing more than 250,000 men, women and children. Since that time, recovery has been slow in the third-world country, and many Haitians who live in Florida want visas allowing their relatives to come to the United States via the proposed family-based visa program known as the Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program.

Supreme Court rules on controversial immigration law

The past couple weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for immigration policy in the United States. As we reported last week, President Obama recently announced that his administration would halt deportations of undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children and meet certain other criteria. Instead, they will have the opportunity to apply for work permits.

Deported father not willing to give up custody of his children

Stories about families struggling with immigration issues in Florida can be especially devastating for the children involved, who in many cases were born in the United States and know no other home. What is frustrating for so many of these families is that most of the time immigration authorities are involved in the destruction of families in favor of immigration laws rather than family law. Family law predominantly dictates that the courts make decisions regarding children based on what is in their best interest, not what is in the best interest of some other area of law.
