TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A contentious invoice that requires a crackdown on towns and counties that don’t agree to federal immigration government is operating into bother in the Florida Senate.
The Florida House has already handed a model of the invoice that could be a best precedence of House Speaker Richard Corcoran. Corcoran, who is predicted to run for governor, has began operating a tv advert touting the invoice.
But Sen. Aaron Bean, a Fernandina Beach Republican, used to be pressured to delay a vote on his model (SB 308) after it turned into transparent he lacked the votes to move it during the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Bean’s invoice would strictly ban “sanctuary city” insurance policies and penalize native officers for upholding them. A handful of Florida counties were criticized for being non-cooperative with federal immigration officers.
