This is the correct decision. The Florida Legislature passed a statute prohibiting any county or municipality from becoming a sanctuary city and requiring all State and local law enforcement to cooperate fully with ICE.
Regardless of your stance on immigration, a State clearly has the constitutional prerogative to override the wishes of its local governments.
I don’t agree fully with EITHER side on all matters related to illegal immigration, but I do support this statute and glad that it was upheld, by United States District Judge Beth Bloom, who was appointed by Barack Obama.
The Governor or Attorney General may remove from office any elected official who violates the statute, so any recalcitrant officials can promptly be disposed of.
The only provision which Judge Bloom struck down was one requiring State law enforcement to transport individuals across State lines, which Bloom indicated was a purely federal task.
While I don’t agree with the right on all their views on immigration enforcement, I do happen to despise sanctuary jurisdictions, they should not exist and they no longer will exist in Florida.
