The Florida Senate has passed a law that would ban companies in the state from contracting with Biden’s government to transport illegal aliens inside the state.

Unsurprisingly, the bill was passed along party lines. It now heads to the Florida House.

“You look at the border we want, [Biden] said we want a secure border, well he’s the one that opened the border,” DeSantis said, according to Breitbart News. “Are you kidding me? If you look at the increase in people that are coming here illegally, two million people came illegally from over 100 different countries over the last year.”

“That was all as a result of the policy choices that were made upon him becoming president,” DeSantis added.

According to WFLA in Tampa:

The bill also revises what Florida’s government considers a “sanctuary policy” and beefs up the requirements to work with United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Under the bill, as written, “common carrier” companies would be required to disclose to state agents if they transport undocumented immigrants, or “unauthorized aliens.”

Specifically, SB 1808 says that carriers who “willfully provide” any service to take an unauthorized alien into Florida, except to put them in detention, removal or departure processes, any state agency, corrections facility or department, or law enforcement entity would be prohibited from entering into contracts with those companies.

The bill does not specify a process to check if the service is provided knowingly or willingly by a company, and does not include language to require a company to check legal immigration statuses before transporting individuals.

The bill will also require law enforcement to work with the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Once again, we see that Florida does the right thing.
