Immigrants could be denied green cards after public assistance

Some Florida immigrants who are already in the country legally and who hope to obtain a green card or another type of visa may have a roadblock in their path if a proposal by the Trump administration is successful. On Sept. 22, the administration proposed a rule that would disqualify immigrants who had received public benefits including public housing, food stamps or Medicaid. Following a period of public comment, the proposal may become a rule.

New policy may hinder immigrants

Those who try to immigrate to Florida can be denied a visa or green card if there are mistakes on their applications. The new policy started on Sept. 11, and it replaces the old policy that required individuals to receive notices of any errors on their applications. While they may still receive one, there is no obligation on the part of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials to do so.

Government to challenge Flores agreement

Florida residents may have heard about the Flores agreement, which led to the resolution of a 1997 court case. It says that immigrant children can only be kept in detention facilities for about 20 days. However, the Trump administration has announced that it is going to try to get around that arrangement. It is part of the administration's efforts to enact a zero tolerance policy as it relates to immigration.

Border birth records causing denial and revocation of passports

A sudden increase in the U.S. Department of State denying passports to citizens has raised concerns among citizens and immigrants in Florida. The newly aggressive moves by the State Department have even included revoking passports previously issued to citizens because they were born near the Mexico border.
