House Democrats look to pull an immigration reform power play

As those in Miami who’ve been following the recent federal immigration debate already know, there is concern in Washington that the proposed legislation that was approved by the Senate last year would not be put on the current legislative agenda for the House. Worries have even surfaced that the bill itself has lost all previous momentum. A major part of the proposed legislation was to offer a path to permanent U.S. residency to undocumented farm workers. Those hoping for more movement on that front do, however, have something to be excited about.

New trend shows Syrians entering the U.S. from Mexico

A common perception that may exist regarding undocumented immigrants in Miami and throughout the rest of the U.S. is that they're all coming in from Central American countries. Yet a recent unique trend has emerged among those immigrants who are entering the U.S. illegally. And while their countries of origin are far, far away from Central America, they are finding the path the U.S. permanent residency to be much easier than other immigrant groups.

Man facing deportation gets his criminal convictions thrown out

The path to U.S. permanent residency or citizenship can be a difficult one. From the time immigrants arrive in Miami, they essentially begin what could be viewed as a "trial period" during which they are expected to demonstrate a willingness to obey their new country's laws and statutes. Yet those working for permanent residency are only human and, like many, are subject to moments of poor judgment. Yet for them, their mistakes could very easily impede their progress to permanent residency and possibly get them deported to their countries of origin.
