MIAMI (AP) - Political and business leaders in Florida held a video call Thursday that included well-known elected officials and at least one federal lawmaker to send a message that there has never been better time to reach consensus in Washington to overhaul the immigration system.
The virtual summit featured people from both parties such as former Florida Republican Party chairman Al Cardenas, Florida’s agriculture commissioner Nikki Fried, a Democrat, as well as Republican congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, a Republican.
“Never in our history … has there been as good a chance to do this as there is now. Some people that are pessimists because of the past failures,” said Cardenas, adding that former president George W. Bush told him he had waited too long and that former president Barack Obama had prioritized health care reform.

The immigration summit takes place just days before former President Donald Trump makes his first post-presidential appearance at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, where he is expected to criticize President Joe Biden’s efforts to undo his immigration policies. Between 2011 and 2014, Cardenas chaired the American Conservative Union, the group that hosts CPAC.
