Supreme Court rules in favor of immigrant

Undocumented immigrants who live in Florida or any other state are not allowed to purchase or possess guns. This is true even if the individual originally came to the country on a valid visa that later expired. However, if an immigrant doesn't know that what they are doing is illegal, the government may not be able to get a conviction. That was what the Supreme Court ruled in a case involving a man who spent time at the Florida Institute of Technology.

New rules could make it harder to get asylum

If President Trump gets his way, it may be harder for immigrants to make their way to Florida or other states to seek asylum. Under a "safe third country" plan, immigrants would be required to first apply for asylum in Mexico or another country. The president also wants immigrants to wait in Mexico until their cases are resolved, which can take months or years to occur.

Florida is one of the top six states for undocumented immigrants

Florida often has a heavy-handed approach toward immigration enforcement. Officials and lawmakers often use immigration as a talking point to impress their voters. Recently, despite no major cities in Florida participating in the sanctuary city program, Florida lawmakers began considering a ban on participation for Florida municipalities.

Special protections limited for some migrant children

For some migrant children entering the United States alone in states like Florida, special protections will no longer be available. This new policy means that some children will no longer get to make claims in front of a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services asylum officer instead of an immigration judge. U.S. immigration authorities, under direction from the Trump Administration, continue to implement further restrictions on immigration in an effort to reduce the amount of people coming over the southern border.
