Black Month History

Black History Month, also known African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Some other countries around the world, such as Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history.

News and Updates

U.S. Citizenship Act

President Joe Biden sent a bill to Congress on day one of his administration. The U.S. Citizenship Act will provide pathways to Citizenship for immigrants - including Dreamers.


This bill calls for the following:

‣ Undocumented individuals to apply for temporary legal status;

‣ The ability to apply for "green cards" after five years if requirements are met.

‣ Dreamers, TPS holders, and immigrant farmworkers who meet these requirements are eligible for green cards immediately under the legislation;

‣ Applicants must be physically present in the United States on or before January 1, 2021.


Lastly, the bill proposes the change of the word "alien" to "noncitizen" in our immigration laws.


End of Muslim Travel Ban

President Biden repealed the Muslim ban, which was signed by former President Donald Trump on January 27, 2017. The latest version of the ban excluded certain nationals from thirteen countries: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania, and Venezuela.


Instead of the ban, the White House says it will improve the screening of visitors by strengthening information sharing with foreign governments and other measures.


"Where there are opportunities to strengthen information-sharing with partners, we will pursue them. And when visa applicants request entry to the United States, we will apply a rigorous, individualized vetting system. But we will not turn our backs on our values with discriminatory bans on entry into the United States", Biden's order stated.

100-Day Pause on Certain Removals

A federal Judge from Texas granted an injunction on the Biden executive order, however, this will have little affect on the 100 day pause.

FHA Now Accepting DACA Home Loans

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced it had changed its policy on DACA home loans. The FHA is willing to approve home loans for DACA recipients. This means that they will get access to the low-down-payment FHA mortgage program. This new rule broadens the mortgage options for the Dreamers, giving them access to a wider variety of accessible paths to homeownership.

Personal Injury Update


A new bill, Senate Bill 54, was passed this week by the Senate Committee on Banking and Insurance, now mandating a minimum bodily injury liability coverage. The new bill repeals the current Florida Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law, which required drivers to carry personal injury protection (PIP) coverage and not bodily injury (BI) liability coverage. The new bill will require every owner and registrant motor vehicle to maintain PIP coverage AND a minimum of $25,000 in bodily injury liability coverage per person and $50,000 per incident.


Why is this important?


The new bill would benefit Floridians because the number of responsibly covered drivers on the road will increase. It will provide a more favorable outcome for insured drivers who may be faced with an unfortunate circumstance by being involved in a serious motor vehicle accident.

Personal Injury Law

Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident? You may need help getting the compensation you deserve. A Tort is a wrongdoing of one person that harms another. Florida law allows the compensation of Tort victims to recover from these incidents.
