In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Florida Gov.-elect Rick Scott endorsed bringing an S.B. 1070-style immigration enforcement law to Florida.

“We need to know who’s in our state, especially people doing something wrong,” he said about the Arizona law. When asked about the effect of such a law on tourism in Florida if boycotts were to happen, Scott said, “Whatever we do, we’re going to make sure it’s fair. But we need people to comply with our laws.” He endorsed the law but said there would be no “racial profiling.”
