SOMOS REPUBLICANS, the largest conservative Hispanic grassroots organization is a leader in advocating pro growth, pro business and pro immigrant ideas. We are not in support of SB 2040, an E-Verificiation Bill which is supported by Florida State Senator Anitere Flores. #

“We are based in Arizona and have watched what enforcement only initiatives have done to destroy our economy, ” Garcia told the Florida Independent,  “and we don’t want to see that happen Florida.” #

We are particularly disappointed in Senator Anitere Flores for showing her incompetence for introducing an Arizona-style anti-immigrant law. We believe she is wasting tax payer monies and resources by using Committees and the Senate floor to serve as a type of show room. #

According to Somos, this statement prompted a letter from Flores, R-Miami, that calls Somos comments uncertain, disingenuous and irresponsible. #

The Legislation that I have proposed neither vilifies immigrants nor denies anyone due process. In fact, it puts all the onus on employers. As I have said many times, SB 2040 is a work in progress. Rather than criticize, I invite you to work on making it the best bill possible. #

The Independent contacted Flores’ office to get her comments on this exchange with Somos Republicans, but she did not respond. #
