Federal judge says Florida ban on “sanctuary cities” racially motivated – Axios

A federal judge on Tuesday struck down parts of a Florida law aimed at banning local governments from establishing sanctuary city policies, arguing in part that the law is racially motivated and that it has the support of hate groups.

Why it matters: In a 110-page ruling issued Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom said the law — signed and championed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) — violates the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause because it was adopted with discriminatory motives.

  1. Illegal immigrants are criminals breaking our laws. We have the most lenient immigration laws around, and people take advantage.

    1. We don’t have the most lenient immigration laws – I’d be happier if our hemisphere acted together the assist Haiti and some Central American states to help people there, so they don’t feel their only chance for living is to leave their country.

    2. You are aware that most of this aid is tied to purchasing US goods and services? Helping themselves? The aid does not support their economies – they all have governments, companies, small businesses, farmers, and US,EU, Russian, Japanese, Chinese companies investing and doing business there. Perhaps the aid would have greater impact if done together rather than separately. I don’t think that page you noted counts military and police related “aid.” Much of the aid, also, is designed to match or counter “aid” offered by Eu nations (former colonial bosses), Russia, Japan and China. Some of the aid is designed to “buy” us influence or benefit both nations. The vaccine shots we are giving to a number of the states is designed to help stop the global pandemic.
