Please urge everyone to contact the below lawmakers NOW (no, we cannot wait) about the FL Legislature 2019 FL Sanctuary City Law. It prohibits cities in Florida from declaring sanctuary status for illegal aliens and requires local law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration officials.

Here is our message to these lawmakers:
My name is Lane Watkins from Columbia County, Florida. Thank you for allowing me to speak. We are speaking out because we live in fear of lawlessness that results when lawbreakers – those in our country illegally - are incentivized by sanctuary policies and law enforcement non-cooperation with ICE. Make no mistake – We support legal immigration! Citizens throughout Florida support HB-527 and SB 168 and urge you to approve this bill and reject efforts to weaken its enforcement provisions. Floridians urgently need action now at the state level before government officials begin rejecting the rule of law as we have seen in other states.
Here are some poor souls who can’t testify before you because they were murdered by illegal aliens as a result of local law enforcement lack of cooperation with ICE:
Denver Colorado first-degree murder; Oregon Wife murdered by husband released despite detainer; 3 people from 2 Missouri families murdered; San Jose, CA March 2019, woman brutally stabbed.
What do you say to the families who have to bury their dead family members about the rule of law? This is an urgent public safety matter. Will I or my family be next to die? Will those that have testified against this bill be the next victim?
Please vote for HB-527 and SB 168 and protect the citizens of Florida.

Pat and Lane Watkins, Lake City, FL
John Lacquey, Branford, FL
Karen Jaroch, Tampa, FL
Carolyn Land, Mayo, FL
Carol Manning, Naples, FL
Ed Harris, Lake City, FL
Alice and Terry Beutien, Palatka, FL
John Nelson, Sebring, FL

Good Luck!

RYAN NICHOLS - Hardened Criminal?? Seriously??

If you're not already aware. This is what's going on in DC while dangerous criminals are allowed back out on the streets.  It's horrifying that this is happening to our citizens and veterans for protesting the hijacking of our election process. This is still happening! They are STILL being tortured and treated like full on terrorists. 

You may not be aware of the typical things they're forced to go through...…
