underway in the Senate, Public Policy Polling is releasing the results of a new poll showing overwhelming support for the legislation. At a press conference on Thursday, June 13 at 10:30 am, South Florida civic leaders and supporters of immigration reform will discuss how the new study indicates voters in Florida are ready for a commonsense solution to the country’s broken immigration system, including a path to citizenship for 11-million undocumented immigrants.
