The activist and journalist is one of the undocumented immigrants expected to receive protection from deportation.
GOP presidential hopefuls Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are even in the Florida polls ahead of Tuesday’s primary.
And today the candidates are holding events aimed at their core supporters. Gingrich has a Tea Party rally, Romney is speaking at a printing company and Rick Santorum is taking part in a prayer breakfast. (Ron Paul isn’t holding any campaign events in Florida Thursday.)
All four candidates will attend another televised debate tonight. Immigration will likely be a flashpoint, after Florida’s Senator Marco Rubio criticized a Gingrich ad which labelled Romney “anti-immigrant.” And polls show that Gingrich loses badly to Romney among Hispanics.
