West Palm Beach Immigration Attorney
Overview of West Palm Beach
As the county seat of Palm Beach County, West Palm Beach is home to more
than 101,043 Florida residents. When settlers first came upon the area
in the 1870s the community was called "Lake Worth Country,"
because of the enclosed freshwater lake. It wasn't until 1894 that
it became known as the Town of West Palm Beach and it was incorporated
into Miami-Dade County. During the 1920s the city began to grow rapidly-
as a result of the Florida Land boom the population of the city quadrupled
from 1920-1927. During this time is when businesses began to grow and
when landmarks began sprouting up. Due to the geography of West Palm Beach
and the western swamp lands, the city is only a few blocks wide but is
more than 100 blocks long, so the growth appeared in a linear fashion
from north to south.
Today, West Palm Beach is a beautiful bustling city where people come from
all over to vacation and to see the sights. There are many historic neighborhoods
throughout the community along with several beautiful parks, The Grassy
Waters Preserve, not to mention a breathtaking skyline from the north.
Cityplace is a popular attraction with an IMAX movie theater, night clubs,
restaurants and other outlets as well as the historic Clematis Street
shopping area with live music and authentic food. West Palm Beach has
undergone extensive construction over the years and now it has over 9
tall buildings 20-30 stories high. It is also considered to be home for
more than 100,000 people who benefit from a strong job market and a distinguished
school system- West Palm Beach is currently ranked highest among the best
schools in the nation.
As with other areas throughout the United States, immigration rights are
becoming a vital concern for the residents of Florida. Thousands of high
and low-skilled workers are looking to enter in to the country for a chance
to work, earn a living and settle down roots. Under Obama's legislation
there may be serious and comprehensive
immigration reform in the near future to help strengthen the flaws in the system.
There will also be a crackdown on seas patrol for any illegal immigrants
who try to make their way into Florida from Cuba or other surrounding
countries. According to Florida immigration statistics, the immigrant
population grew substantially in 2012 with a 37% increase as the population
numbers grew from 2,670,828 in 2000 to 3,658,043 in 2010. In fact, studies
show that 24.4% of Florida's workforce in 2010 was made up of foreign-born
workers- this means that there were 2,259,883 foreign workers throughout
the state. There have been 1.6 million Florida immigrants who have been
newly naturalized citizens of the U.S. This is giving immigrants and the
born children of immigrants an opportunity for a better life and to find
gainful employment. If you are looking to immigrate to the United States
for employment reasons or your entire family wishes to settle down roots
here, then you could greatly benefit from the experienced counsel of a
West Palm Beach immigration attorney.
