Legal Immigrants for America (LIFA) is proud to have joined forces with The Remembrance Project and Floridians for Immigration Enforcement (FLIMEN) to testify before the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate to encourage and endorse the “Ban Sanctuary Cities” bill in the state of Florida.
Our joint efforts were successful in that first the Florida House Judicial Committee passed the bill on April 16 and then on April 17 the Senate committee passed it as well. The full legislature acted favorably on April 24 and finally on April 26 the Florida Senate in a vote of 22 to 18 passed the Senate version. There will be a short reconciliation process and then it is expected that Florida governor Ron DeSantis will sign the bill into law shortly. This will make Florida the 8th state in the nation to ban sanctuary cities.

They along with Remembrance Project Director, Maria Espinoza, are to be congratulated for their efforts to make Florida a Rule of Law state.
LIFA does not make it a practice to ask for donations. We try to self-fund as much as possible. Our successful efforts in Florida does come with a price. It is expensive for travel, hotels, meals, etc. We would like to take our “Ban Sanctuary Cities” project on to other states and we would like your help. Your donation will enable us to move forward. If you believe in our cause please contribute. We are working for you and for the country we love. God Bless America.
