Florida House passes plan to bar 'sanctuary cities'

House wraps up first week of session with a full slate of business

Debate in the House centered around recent comments reportedly made by President Donald Trump about Haiti and African nations at a meeting with lawmakers Thursday.

The Florida House has overwhelmingly approved a ban against sanctuary policies. 9, or the Rule of Law Adherence Act, in a 71-35 vote that fell largely along party lines.

"No one is above the law, and now if a politician or government official tries to ignore America's immigration laws, they will be punished", Corcoran said in a statement after Friday's vote. Democrats and immigration advocates say the bill could lead to racial profiling and would force local police officers to get proof of immigration status from everyone they arrest.

Similar Legislation passed in Texas but was ruled unconstitutional by a federal court. "It's immoral that legislators elected to protect our children, year after year, continue to propose bills that criminalize immigrant workers who are their parents, and cold-heartedly separate families", said Lourdes Villanueva, board chair of the FLIC, in a statement. He spoke at length against the bill, speaking in both English and Haitian Creole.

This is What Meghan Markle's First Wedding Dress Looked Like
According to The Mirror , Donald Trump's name won't be on the guest list for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle . For one thing, she wants everyone to know that, uh, her Princess Pushy book is not going to be an unflattering portrayal.

The Land O'Lakes Republican, who is in his final session and considering a run for governor, is using his personal bully pulpit to push an array of causes, including banning so-called sanctuary cities (HB 9), ending subsidies for sports teams like the Tampa Bay Rays (HB 13) and banning future redevelopment agencies (HB 17). And they accused Republicans of capitalizing on the conflict to fuel campaigns for higher office.

"Are we really trying to just serve up red meat in an election year?" Its sponsor Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalaha, said he began working on the legislation a couple of years ago after hearing of the fatal shooting of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco. Or perhaps the bill is meant to help people to run for higher office? The bill would require complying with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention requests and repealing current sanctuary policies.

House Democrats linked the sanctuary-city bill to Trump and his reported comments. The legislation heads to the Florida Senate, where it's not clear if there is support there to pass it.
