When adapting to life in Florida after emigrating from another country, it's always helpful to have a strong support network in place.

If an immigrant is denied U.S. immigration law support, not only might it exacerbate the problem at hand, but it may also be a personal rights violation.

Many Florida immigrants say they get worried anytime there's a knock on their doors, especially if it happens unexpectedly.

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.
