Florida is an Attractive Home for Intending Immigrants
According to the Florida Department of State, approximately 1,000 people migrate to the state of Florida every single day. Many of those thousand are immigrants from foreign countries looking for a new start. Others are looking for new economic opportunities for themselves and their children. Still other immigrants are looking to escape a difficult or dangerous situation in their home nation.
Regardless of your reasons for deciding to leave your home country to come to the United States, it is likely that you are not alone. The United States is a nation of immigrants and Florida is no different. A 2011 Pew Hispanic Center Survey found that more than 3.6 million Florida residents were born outside of the United States. That means nearly 20 percent, one-in-five, of Florida’s residents are foreign born. In fact more than 3.6 million people in Florida have immigrated from their home country.
The largest immigrant communities in Florida originate from Cuba, Mexico, and Colombia. However these are far from the only immigrant communities in the state. Florida also has large populations of Russian, Asian, and Jewish individuals.
Handling the Immigration Process
The Immigration process can be intimidating, complex, and fraught with potential legal pitfalls. However, in general, the process consists of an immigrant securing a permanent visa that authorizes him to live and work in the United States on the basis of job skills and employment or family relationship. Typically, the immigrant must be sponsored through petition by an employer or qualifying family member. The immigrant must then go through a process and produce documents Once permanent residence, green card status, has been achieved the immigrant may choose to work towards satisfying the criteria for naturalization set forth in the Immigration and nationality act. However, those intending to become a U.S. citizen must make special considerations regarding any travel outside of the U.S.
