The Florida House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday to outlaw sanctuary cities that harbor criminal illegal aliens.
Led by Republicans, the bill would require “local law enforcement agencies to cooperate with federal immigration authorities and banning so-called ‘sanctuary city’ policies that shield immigrants who are arrested,” said NBC.
“The GOP-led House voted 69-47 along party lines Wednesday for the measure, sending it over to the Senate where a similar bill is pending,” according to the report.
The Florida Senate is stacked with Republicans, who outnumber Democrats 23-17. Should the bill pass the Senate, it will likely be signed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is known for his tough stance on border security.
“I’m asking the Legislature to send me a bill during this legislative session to address sanctuary cities and counties in Florida. I’m also calling on more local law enforcement to work with the federal government to ensure our immigration laws are enforced and justice is upheld,” he said in February.

The American Civil Liberties Union has reportedly warned “immigrants” against traveling to Florida, and “triggered protests around the state.”
Legal immigrants, of course, would have nothing to worry about under the new bill. Those breaking America’s laws by living here illegally could be punished if Florida’s cities are, indeed, forced to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Border Patrol Expects 13,000 Illegal Alien Minors to Arrive at the Border in May ALONE
A consequence of Biden’s open borders policy.
Customs and Border Patrol is expecting more than 13,000 unaccompanied minor illegal aliens to arrive at the US-Mexico border in the month of May alone, bracing for unprecedented ‘caravan’ style migration to the United States as President Joe Biden dismantles ICE and opens the immigration system to dubious asylum seekers.
A CBP official provided the projection to the Biden administration on Thursday. The already increasing arrival of child migrants during Biden’s presidency have revealed the “kids in cages” talking point of the Left and the media to be little more than a political prop, with CBP and DHS detaining the minors in the exact same detention facilities.
“We’re seeing the highest February numbers than we’ve ever seen in the history of the [Unaccompanied Alien Child] program,” a CBP official was quoted as telling Axios on Thursday. The border agency expects caravan-style migration to pick up in earnest in the spring months, possibly presenting a genuine border crisis for Biden, who has promised to obey a strict ‘America Last’ approach to the border and immigration.
The federal government was never going to release minors from another country onto the streets of the United States without the support of relatives, or hand them off to the already troubled group home system.
Biden’s de facto invitation of illegal immigration will prove to be an invitation for dangerous journeys from minors from Central America and Mexico. Human smugglers often utilize supposed minors to pose as family units in hopes of amnesty from the United States. Many of the unaccompanied minors who arrive in the United States have been instructed to come to the country in hopes of enabling legal residency for the adult family.
The Biden administration is actively expanding minor detention centers in response to the current surge of illegal immigration, with previous faux-moral sanctimony about ‘kids in cages’ demonstrated to be little more than political propaganda. If you don’t want to detain illegal alien minors in federal facilities, don’t create border policies that serve as a de facto invitation for smugglers to traffic them.
