FWD.us Statement on Signing of Florida State Senate Bill 168 Into Law

TALLAHASSEE, FL – FWD.us Florida State Director Ted Hutchinson issued the following statement today in response to Governor Ron DeSantis signing into law Florida State Senate Bill 168, which undermines the discretion of local law enforcement by requiring Florida’s communities to enforce federal immigration law:

“We are disappointed that Governor DeSantis signed SB 168 into law today. This partisan legislation was passed for political gain. It is a solution in search of a problem, considering all Florida jurisdictions currently cooperate with federal law enforcement. Elected officials, business leaders, and law enforcement from both sides of the aisle stood in widespread bipartisan opposition to this bill and we will continue to stand against legislation that will hurt immigrant communities across Florida.”
