What is your point of view?"

From My Point of View

 SANCTUARY CITY LEGISLATION

Designates act

"Rule of Law Adherence Act"

Ask Florida House Speaker and  Your State Representative to Pass Anti-Sanctuary City Legislation

The Florida State House of Representatives will soon vote on a bill (HB 675) that would penalize cities for adopting illegal-alien sanctuary policies -- i.e., those that limit cooperation with federal immigration enforcement officials. It also provides a cause of action for personal injury or wrongful death caused by a city's sanctuary policies.


The measure is facing substantial opposition from pro-illegal alien groups and the media. Please help by contacting House Speaker Steve Crisafulli and your State Representative and asking them to pass HB 675.

ACTION ITEM: 1

Talking points are included below.

Calling Speaker Crisafulli
Please call Speaker Steve Crisafulli's office -- 850-717-5051 -- with the message below. If he is your State Representative, it is critical to mention it.


"I am a concerned Florida voter who respectfully asks you to ensure that HB 675 passes the House. The bill will stop local governments from shielding criminal aliens from federal immigration officials. This is critical for the safety of our communities.

Sanctuary policies are not needed to protect witnesses and crime victims who are illegal immigrants because they are protected under the federal "U" visa."

You may want to use the initial talking points below for calling and the additional points for your email.


"I am a voter in your district who respectfully asks you to vote YES on HB 675. The bill will stop local governments from shielding criminal aliens from federal immigration officials. This is critical for the safety of our communities.

Sanctuary policies are not needed to protect witnesses and crime victims who are illegal immigrants because they are protected under the federal "U" visa."


Additional Talking Points
The patchwork array of sanctuary cities around Florida is leaving criminal illegal immigrants on our streets. This subjects citizens to unnecessary dangers, including from criminals who are deported but keep returning.

Two laws passed in 1996 expressly forbid sanctuary policies. Those statutes say in plain English that a city may prohibit its officers from communicating with the federal government about a person's immigration status.

Please stand with voters in your district who need some relief from our growing criminal alien problem. The noisy groups that oppose this bill do not have our best interests in mind.
Thank you in advance for your assistance

An update for me personally.

Babs,

Late last June, had a fall and dislocated my right shoulder. Four days later, my son kidnapped me (sic) and relocated me to North Carolina and established the followup medical requirements including Physical Therapy. I sold my home in Jacksonville and bought a home here. My son is a retired Marine. Obviously, I've been among the missing at FCTP meetings and events, but my heart is still with all. I did cast my last vote in Florida for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis and held my…
