A new measure slowly making its way through the Florida legislature would be the first in the nation to effectively “ban” local governments from instituting ‘Sanctuary City’ policies throughout the state.

“A Florida measure that would ban sanctuary cities is set for a vote Friday in the state’s Senate after clearing its first hurdle earlier this week,” reports Fox News. “The bill would effectively make it against the law for Florida’s police departments to refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials.”
