Residents have negative feelings about undocumented immigrants, but a strong majority favors policy that would allow such immigrants a path to U.S. citizenship. Although many Floridians see undocumented immigrants as threats, they still had sympathetic views toward those trying to establish themselves as U.S. residents. This is the second of four surveys PIE Center officials hope to conduct every year to track public sentiment over time.
The results are in! The overall winner of the PIE Center Photo Contest is Lisette Ortiz, a junior at the University of Florida, with her photograph entitled “Fine feathers make fine birds”. Her photo, taken on a farm in Alajuela, Costa Rica, features a girl holding a chicken. The 42 photos submitted to the PIE Center’s first contest captured some amazing moments in agriculture and natural resources.
