Statement on Florida Senate GOP’s Unconstitutional Attack on Immigrants

Posted

Today, following the vote by the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal and Civil Justice on SB-120, FDP spokesman Max Steele released the following statement:

“Senator Hutson’s off-brand Trump impression may play well with his Republican base but the last thing Florida needs is another losing court battle that costs taxpayers millions. Instead of focusing on creating jobs and improving the lives of Floridians, Republicans are pushing a plainly unconstitutional attack on immigrants drummed up to score political points. Senate Bill 120 is an expensive, legally invalid waste of taxpayer resources that does nothing to keep Floridians safe or grow the economy.”
