Gov. Crist has called a special session of the legislature. And, of course, Florida taxpayers are on the hook to pay for it. So as long as we paying them anyway, here’s something that the legislature should do: bring the Arizona immigration law here to Florida. Now. Pass it in the special session.
The ad, billed as “conservative commentary,” neglects to mention the nuances of the Arizona law, which requires police to detain people they suspect to be in the country without authorization, and charge immigrants who fail to carry documentation with a state crime. In addition, citizens can sue cities if they believe the law is not properly enforced.
