Just a few days shy of the beginning of this year’s legislation session, there are signs that in-state tuition for undocumented students might pass.
During a meeting with Hispanic members of the Florida Legislature, Gov. Rick Scott said he will "consider" a bill that would allow the children undocumented immigrants living in Florida to qualify for in-state tuition at the state's colleges and universities.
A Florida congressman– and key figure in the U.S. House working many years to overhaul the country’s immigration laws– has all but said any hope of immigration reform this year is gone.
President Obama is now open to the U.S. House’s approach to voting on immigration bills one by one, but Rep. Mario Diaz Balart tells reporters that this change is by no means a guarantee that reform will pass.
Recent polling didn't just find that Floridians are moving away from congressional Republicans, they also aren't keen on Sen. Marco Rubio’s immigration stance or George Zimmerman—but they are in support of a medical marijuana initiative.
Now that comprehensive immigration reform in Congress is a long-shot, activists are turning their eyes to the White House.
