Florida --- CryCry Never content to let another state keep it's Faildom is hoping to implement Arizona's Immigration law. Boooooooo, when can I move? Not before I choose NOT to vote for Rick Scott or Bill McCollum in November.

GOP wants to copy Arizona law



Bill’s sponsor claims proposal would protect undocumented immigrants.


By Cristina Silva

Florida Republican leaders are crafting anti-illegal-immigrant legislation modeled after an Arizona law that has incited widespread protests and fueled national and international debate over U.S. immigration policies. Under the proposed bill, police would have broad power under state law to ask suspects for proof of legal residency, said Rep. William Snyder, a Republican from Stuart who plans to introduce the legislation in November. “We have significant components from the Arizona bill that I plan to incorporate,” he said. “We have the beginnings
of it.” The effort, which would be filed for consideration during the March legislative session, is already drawing broad support within the GOP.

In an election year shaped by anti-incumbency sentiment, majority leaders in the Florida Senate and House said a new approach is needed to address the federal government’s failure to temper illegal immigration.

The effort has the backing of both leading Republican gubernatorial candidates — businessman Rick Scott and Attorney General Bill McCollum.

In fact, McCollum’s office is helping to draft the bill.

Snyder, a former police officer, said the proposed legislation is needed to protect undocumented immigrants,
who are vulnerable to abusive employers and violent criminals.

“This is a human right issue,” he said. “They don’t enjoy the same rights and privileges that you and I do. The solution is to enforce the laws that currently exist and to discourage people from coming here to ‘find a better life’ when in fact they just come here and are victimized .”Ermm


Immigrant advocates and Hispanic lawmakers alike called the measure an unconstitutional assault on minority communities.

“The reaction is, ‘What? This is ridiculous,’ ” said Neelofer Syed, a Tampa immigration lawyer who hails from Pakistan. “It is supposed to be that you are legal until you are proven guilty. This law is like, ‘We think you are guilty unless you establish that you are innocent.’” Civil rights groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union have filed legal challenges to Arizona’s legislation, and President Barack Obama’s administration is expected to follow suit.

Critics questioned why Florida lawmakers would consider replicating Arizona’s untested immigration strategy while legal challenges are pending .

“Rep. Snyder’s proposal solves nothing , exploits public concern over immigration and just creates new problems,” said Howard Simon, executive director of ACLU Florida.

The tension has become a rallying point for candidates on both sides of the political spectrum. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink has highlighted her Republican opponents’ support of the law in stump speeches. “She was opposed to the law in Arizona,’’ said campaign spokeswoman Kyra Jennings. “She believes it unfairly discriminated against American citizens. She would veto that type of legislation.”

Championing tougher immigration laws is a risky election strategy, said George Gonzalez, a University of Miami political science professor.

“It is a way to channel people’s anger and frustration about the labor market onto a group and to take advantage of it, too,” he said.

But it could anger Hispanic voters as well, Gonzalez said.

“None of this is foolproof,” he said. “It could blow up in the Republicans’ faces either way.”

His law would be refined, Snyder said, because it would only allow law enforcement officials to inquire about immigration status during a potential arrest or traffic violation. In Arizona, officers are required to request legal documentation during any lawful stop if “reasonable suspicion” exists.

Coming up with the precise language will be diffic lt, conceded Snyder, who recently defended his views on Fox News. “‘Reasonable suspicion’ makes people nervous,” he said.

I would like to see all 50 states plus DC jump on this. If I travel to another country illegally what do you think would happen to me.
Or I wish E-VERIFY would become mandatory for all business. Period

They will fail miserably......there are WAY too much hispanic influence in Fl for them to pull that off.  Yeah, that's political suicide to attempt that....and all the high profile businesses that operate in florida....too many possible boycotts that would cripple companies.
