Florida House of Representatives passes legislation concerning federal immigration laws

The Florida House of Representatives passed a bill to ban sanctuary cities in Florida, a top priority for House leadership during the 2018 legislative session.

The bill passed 71-35 on a party line vote. "Our local law enforcement agencies' core responsibility is to protect and serve their communities, not assume the burden of enforcing federal immigration law".

Democrats argued the bill is unconstitutional, unworkable and would lead to racial profiling. It would impose fines of up to $5,000 a day on local governments that refuse to cooperate with immigration detainers.

"HB 9 is President Trump's immigration policy wrapped up into one bill, without a wall and without a Muslim ban", said Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando.

During the debate, Trump's purported comment that countries like El Salvador, Haiti and some African nations are "shitholes" came up time after time.

House Democrats linked the sanctuary-city bill to Trump and his reported comments.

On Thursday, Rep. Blaise Ingoglia, one of the bill's sponsors, said almost half the money collected from red-light violations goes to vendors that provide the cameras. Anti-immigration activists and President Donald Trump have blamed sanctuary policies for her death because she was allegedly shot by an undocumented immigrant who had previously been deported.

"What we're doing is following the rule of law", Cortes said. "America's greatness is self-evident, we do not need to tear down other nations".

The bill has been passed the House before, but the Senate has never given it a hearing.

When legislators take their seats on the floor of the Florida House this afternoon, they will be considering an agenda both bearing the stamp of House Speaker Richard Corcoran's legislative priorities and aligned favorably with fiscal conservatives.

"Let's talk about the rule of law".

In an early morning tweet Friday, Trump denied making the remarks but did not specify what he said at the meeting centered on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, the Obama-era policy that focused on children who are brought into the US illegally by their parents or guardians. "This is about lawful immigration and the rule of law". "The sanctuary policy. I said I never want to see this happen in the state of Florida", Metz said during his closing comments on the bill.
