The state of Florida will harbor illegal immigration no more. That’s because Governor Ron DeSantis has signed a bill banning sanctuary cities in the entire state.
And there will be howling from the left.
Earlier this year, I made a promise that we would ban sanctuary cities in Florida and today we are delivering on that promise. I am proud to sign the bill presented to me by the FL Legislature to uphold the rule of law and ensure that our communities are safe. pic.twitter.com/xKQDOPRBHx— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) June 14, 2019
More, from CBS News:
All law enforcement agencies in Florida will have to cooperate with federal immigration authorities under a bill signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday during a ceremony that often felt like a campaign rally for him and President Donald Trump.
The legislation prohibits local governments from enacting “sanctuary” polices that protect undocumented immigrants from deportation — which no Florida cities had actually done. Local law enforcement will be required to honor U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers for undocumented immigrants who are arrested or convicted of a crime. The bill exempts crime victims and witnesses.
“Sanctuary cities basically create law-free zones where people can come to our state illegally and our country illegally, commit criminal offenses and then just walk right out the door and continue to do it,” DeSantis said. “In Florida, that will not happen.”
Here’s one of the liberal losers whining now:
Ron Desantis' anti-immigrant bill signed today is an extension of Donald Trump's attacks on immigrant families across the country. Florida should be a welcoming state, with a legal & just immigration system, not a fear-mongering walled-off community.https://t.co/FWnH9fEz0p— Andrew Gillum (@AndrewGillum) June 14, 2019
I don’t even see why this is controversial, it’s simply local authorities cooperating with federal law enforcement on immigration law. But that’s the world we live in and you can bet it will get much much worse if any of the clowns the Democrats are putting up as candidates get into office. That alone will keep tons of people voting for Trump, even those who find him personally objectionable.
