MIAMI - Over 1,200 immigrant youth, families, and allies gathered in Miami to kick-off the one month countdown to this year’s midterm election on October 6, 2018. By weekend’s end, the New Florida Majority, United We Dream Action, SEIU Florida, FLIC Votes and other members of the Win Justice coalition had knocked on 29,000 doors, called 16,000 people and texted 45,000 numbers in what was coordinated the largest single voter mobilization in the state of Florida this election cycle.
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson issued the following statement following a ruling to block the Trump administration’s effort to terminate Temporary Protected Status for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Sudan:
Just one of every four Florida voters cast ballots in the primary elections for governor. The other 10 million voters sat it out or were shut out because they are not Republicans or Democrats. As a result, there is no centrist on the November ballot who offers broad appeal in a sharply divided state. But there is one candidate who could reset priorities, rebalance government and check the Florida Legislature’s worst impulses: Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.
