Floridians for Immigration Enforcement
Good news! The Anti-Sanctuary bills have passed all committees in the Florida State Legislature and now move to the full House and full Senate for final voting prior to the close of the Session on May 3, 2019.
HB527 Judiciary Committee on April 16, 2019
- Yeas: 12, Nays: 6 (On party lines, all Republicans Yea and all Democrats Nay)
- Video (Starts at 2 hr 19 min)
SB168 Rules Committee on April 17, 2019
- YEAS 9 NAYS 8
- Votes (not posted yet, all Republicans, except Senator Flores, Yea and all Democrats Nay)
- Video (Starts at 3 min, 30 sec)
As shown by the videos the testimonies were contentious.
The full House is expected to pass the bill by a safe margin. However, with Senator Flores expected to defect again, the vote in the full Senate will be close. If two Republicans defect in addition Flores, the bill dies. Therefore, please urge your Florida State Senator to vote Yes on SB168.
