Tuesday was the second anniversary of what was, at the time, the deadliest mass shooting in American history at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. A two-and-a-half-hour drive southwest from the city, a group gathered to remember the victims and call for reforms to state and federal laws to prevent such a shooting in the future.

Undocumented Pulse Survivors In Legal Limbo

Jun 22, 2017

Some of the undocumented immigrant survivors of the Pulse tragedy are in legal limbo. They’re trying to get a visa under a special category- for victims of certain crimes who assist law enforcement in investigations. Immigration Attorney Raquel Santiago is helping out one person from Honduras and another from Guatemala.


A Pulse remembrance ceremony drew thousands of people to Lake Eola in downtown Orlando on Monday night. Among them were survivors of the shooting, as well as their loved ones. The families and friends of the forty nine people who were killed also took part in the vigil, many traveling from Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and across the United States.
