Immigration is a major issue in Florida where the concentration of undocumented immigrants is the fourth largest across the country.
Many Florida residents believe that illegal immigration is harming their state and won't necessarily support reforms like the DREAM Act.
A study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that the state spends $3.4 billion each year to educate undocumented children. Overall, it determined that Florida houses 950,000 undocumented residents.
A Zogby Poll from April also reported that 71.3 percent of Florida voters believed illegal immigration had a negative impact on the state and only 36 percent of those surveyed supported amnesty or legalization for current undocumented residents.
