The West Palm Beach office of U.S. Senator Bill Nelson was the focal point of a major rally on behalf of immigrants in Florida on February 2, 2018. Families and friends of immigrants in the area converged on the office to show their support and to demand increased attention and action on behalf of DACA recipients and undocumented immigrants in the state of Florida. Nelson recently voted in favor of a bipartisan immigration bill that would have provided a pathway to citizenship for as many as 1.8 million recipients of relief under DACA. The bill also included $25 billion in funding for a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
The End of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, better known as DACA, provided protections for the children of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as minors. The Trump administration has taken aim at DACA, moving to revoke the program in favor of an as-yet-undetermined replacement that might offer a pathway to citizenship for some of these individuals. Currently, the status of DACA is under legal review and could go before the U.S. Supreme Court before a final decision can be made.
