The issue of how to deal with undocumented immigrants remains the most hotly contested debate at the heart of immigration reform.

As immigrants in the state of Florida and all across the country keep on top of the latest news and ongoing debates over federal reform measures, millions await their fate. Countless individuals, no matter their legal status, may be effected by changes to the U.S. immigration system; and for many of those that have been waiting to become citizens for years, changes cannot come soon enough. Potential updates to current immigration policies could effectively speed the process along for countless people seeking American citizenship.
