The Florida House opened debate Tuesday on a hotly contested Republican bill requiring local law enforcement agencies to cooperate with federal immigration authorities and banning so-called “sanctuary city” policies aimed at shielding immigrants who are arrested.

The GOP-dominated House turned back several Democratic amendments intended to weaken the measure or carve out exceptions such as refugees, with a final vote expected as early as Wednesday. A similar bill is pending in the state Senate.

The article goes on to state the following:

The bill would force local law enforcement agencies to cooperate with federal authorities who enforce immigration laws for people who are arrested or detained, mainly U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE.

DML News App offers the following additional information published by SUN-SENTINEL.COM:

The American Civil Liberties Union is warning people not to travel to Florida if the Legislature passes a ban on “sanctuary city” policies being considered in Tallahassee Wednesday.

“If Florida State Bill 168 and House Bill 527 pass, it would undermine local governments’ ability to protect the civil rights of their residents by forcing local officials to cooperate with ICE,” the ACLU said in a statement. “It would also put immigrants at risk of violence, potentially forcing victims and witnesses to stay silent for fear of deportation.”
