IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JENNIFER CARROLL - POTENTIAL US SENATOR

Rate this Entry
Jennifer carroll The early retirement of US Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) has opened up an appointment opportunity for Governor Charlie Crist, himself a candidate for Martinez's seat. Crist will likely not appoint himself and a number of names are circulating for potential replacements. According to Politico, one person being considered is Jacksonville-area State Representative Jennifer Carroll. Carroll would be the first black female Republican Senator if she were selected. Carroll is a native of Trinidad and a retired US Navy officer. Carroll's immigration positions aren't clear from her record, not exactly a surprise given that state legislatures don't consider very many immigration bills. One would hope, however, that her own immigration history would give her special insight in to the issue.

    From what I read, Carroll is a naturalized citizen. She came to the U.S. at age 8 with her family. I think having a personal experience with the immigration issue will be an asset for the next U.S. Senator from Florida. Her voice will be taken as credible on this issue because she's lived it. With the diverse population of immigrants in Florida, it would be good to have someone that can speak in Washington for immigration issues.
