    Controversial 'sanctuary cities' ban gets green light in Fla. House

    Shannon Valladolid, WTSP 6:41 PM. EST January 13, 2018

    On Friday, The Florida House passed a controversial bill to ban "sanctuary cities" in the state.

    This was a top priority for House leaders.

    It would require all Florida government employees and universities to comply with federal immigration laws.

    Pamela Gomez with the Florida Immigration Coalition has been fighting to protect the rights of immigrants. She calls the bill unethical.

    That's why she traveled to Tallahassee to speak out against HB 9.

    “That would be very harmful for our community because there is already distress in the immigrant community,” says Gomez.

    Despite many organizations opposing the bill, it passed with a 71-35 vote.

    Gomez's fear is that, if passed, the bill would discourage immigrants who are victims of a crime from seeking help.

    “It would make police officers and even teachers having to turn over their students and people in their custody over to (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement), which makes city employees federal immigration agents, which is ridiculous,” she says.

    It would also criminalize immigrant parents of U.S. citizens and require local governments and universities to comply with federal immigration laws.

    f these employees choose not to comply, they would face fines of up to $5,000 a day along with possible suspension or removal from office.

    HB 9 was inspired by the 2015 fatal shooting of Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

    Her killer, Jose Zarate, was an undocumented immigrant from Mexico. He had previously been deported five times and had seven felony convictions.

    He was acquitted of her murder.

    Anti-immigration activists and President Donald Trump blamed sanctuary policies for her death.

    HB9 is now headed to the Senate. However, Senate lawmakers have refused to hear similar proposals in the past two years

    ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE NO RIGHT! THEY ARE NOT U.S. CITIZENS!

    GO TRAVEL TO MEXICO AND FIGHT FOR THEIR RIGHTS THERE!

    U.S. TAXPAYERS ARE UNDER EXTREME "DISTRESS" OVER ILLEGAL ALIENS AND FOOTING THE BILL FOR THEM!

    DEPORT THEM ALL AND RELIVE THIS BURDEN OFF THE BACKS OF U.S. TAXPAYERS!
    NO DACA - NO AMNESTY - NO PATH TO STAY - LET WORK PERMITS EXPIRE

    HAND UAC'S OVER INTO THE CARE AND CUSTODY OF THEIR EMBASSY!

    “Discourage victims of crime from reporting?

    Bullshit!

    Really? Same old DemoRat talking point, don’t you have anything new?

    Illegal aliens are not afraid of anything.
