Florida House passes DREAMER bill

A bill that recently passed the Florida House would give the children of undocumented immigrants the ability to pay the same rates as other students if they attend college in the state. The law says that students who went to high school in the state for four years would get a tuition waiver. Residents who go to an in-state college typically pay around 25 percent of what an out-of-state student would pay to attend.

Man survives shocking car accident in Miami

In Miami, it's not uncommon to find yourself stuck in traffic due to car accidents, and most people are used to hearing about accidents on a day-to-day basis. If you've been hurt or know someone who has been hurt in a car accident, though, you know how quickly that accident can lead to injuries and mental trauma that can last for years to come. In this case, a car crash left two people with serious injuries and a third with minor injuries and a car that was totaled.

New policy helps family members of military personnel

Florida illegal immigrant denied law license

A Florida man has been denied the ability to practice law in the state because he entered the country illegally when he was nine years old. On March 6, the Florida Supreme Court ruled that illegal immigrants are prohibited from holding professional licenses. However, the court added that the state legislature could take action to override the federal immigration law.

Witness helps track down hit-and-run driver after fatal accident

A man witnessed a hit-and-run in Florida that killed a motorcyclist, and he decided he could not let the driver get away. He darted across traffic, yelling at the drunk driver to stop because she had hit someone. He tried to take a picture so that he had evidence of her license plate for the police. She eventually pulled over and got out of her vehicle, but she refused to go back to the scene. At this point, the man was able to get a clear picture of her plate, so he returned to the scene and talked to the deputies, who were very interested in his side of the story.

Supreme Court rejects hearing local immigration appeals

Florida is frequently the destination for people immigrating to the United States, and residents may be interested in the news that the U.S. Supreme Court turned down requests for appeals from two towns that had written immigration laws that were overruled by federal laws. Farmers Branch, Texas, and Hazleton, Pennsylvania, had hoped to argue their positions and have the appeals court rulings overturned. It was in 2012 when the Supreme Court heard its last major immigration case.
