Florida Voices for Immigration Reform, a bipartisan group based in Palm Beach County, has written letters to GOP Congressmen Daniel Webster of Winter Haven and Bill Young of Seminole, urging them to support an immigration overhaul that includes a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people in the U.S.
The letters are part of a nationwide effort to convince a select number of Republican House members to back such legislation. The Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate already passed such a bill, but the majority of the House members are Republicans and most oppose citizenship for the undocumented. Some label it “amnesty” for lawbreakers.
