A member of the Florida state Senate introduced legislation that would ban sanctuary cities in the state, advancing Governor-elect Ron DeSantis’ agenda in the state.
Florida state Senator Joe Gruters introduced Florida Senate Bill 168, which would require Florida’s “state entities, local governmental entities, and law enforcement agencies to comply with and support the enforcement of federal immigration law,” prohibit sanctuary cities, provide protections for whistle blowers who report noncompliance with federal immigration law, and compel existing sanctuary cities in the state to repeal any legislation protecting illegal immigrants.
Gruters’ legislation advances the agenda of Florida Governor-elect Ron DeSantis, who has been a longtime critic of sanctuary cities. During his campaign, DeSantis made it a central issue, pledging “there is not going to be any sanctuary cities in the state of Florida if I am governor” during a televised debate.
There’s NOT going to be any sanctuary cities in Florida when I’m Governor! I’ve always opposed amnesty and stood up for the rule of law in our country. Cheap foreign labor is not an excuse to let lawlessness prevail in the sunshine state. We want people who come LEGALLY! pic.twitter.com/tIJwIVa1BA

DeSantis has been a long time critic of sanctuary city legislation, previously writing that such cities “snub their noses at federal immigration law and care more about protecting violators of law than they do their own citizens.”
Sanctuary cities snub their noses at federal immigration law and care more about protecting violators of law than they do their own citizens. DOJ should now do all they can to bring federal charges to ensure that justice is done for #KateSteinle’s family. 3/3

Florida has become a hot spot for policy debate surrounding illegal immigration, as DeSantis’ opponent, Andrew Gillum, was caught on video admitting he would have welcomed the caravan of Honduran and Guatemalan migrants with open arms.
After a contentious 2018 midterm election, fraught with allegations of fraud and and misconduct among election officials, the same Florida Democrats who sought to enact sanctuary city legislation and welcome illegal immigrants are now reportedly seeking lawyers to defend them in a possible election fraud investigation.

Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
