One of the most prominent groups that advocate for Latinos in the country has come out to pass Ron DeSantis and the new immigration law that will begin in July. The governor and virtual Republican presidential candidate moved legislation last week requiring employers of more than 25 employees to verify their immigration status using a federal database called E-Verify, which was called “hostile and dangerous” by the Hispanic community in Florida. “As a Harvard-educated lawyer, pilot DeSantis has a chameleon-like ability to imagine,” warns the Latin association.
Buyers who spend $1,000 a day don’t respect the law until they prove they’re legal citizens. In addition, the law revokes identification cards from other states, such as driver’s licenses, that are issued to illegal immigrants and prevents Florida-based agencies from issuing new cards. This will prevent people who have immigrated illegally from driving a car in the state.

Even people who could transport undocumented people living in the country would face serious fines and possible jail time. The immigration bill is one of several controversial pieces of legislation DeSantis recently signed that has garnered national attention as he prepares to potentially face off against President Donald Trump and others in the 2024 Republican presidential primary.
Domingo Garcia, President of LULAC
Domingo Garcia, president of the Latino League of Latin American Citizens (LULAC), called the new immigration law “hostile and dangerous.” “As a result of this, for the second time in LULAC history, we’ve come up with a travel plan for someone to Florida,” Garcia said.
LULAC, a civil rights organization dedicated to promoting Hispanic America, was founded 94 years ago. DeSantis said the law is a powerful way to fight “the reckless policies of the federal government and to ensure Florida taxpayers don’t foot the bill on illegal immigration,” according to a statement he signed into law earlier this month.
The president signed a law last week that requires companies with more than 25 employees to verify their immigration status using a federal database called E-Verify, a measure described as hostile and dangerous to Florida’s Hispanic community.
DeSantis accuses the administration of hurting Florida’s economy and further marginalizing immigrant communities. Garcia also warned Latinos to be careful traveling to Florida with family members if they run into police. “DeSantis will treat us like criminals, carrying a dangerous person who just wanted to visit family or Disneyworld,” Garcia said.
They deny Florida’s construction, restaurant, and agricultural industries have “devastated” the economy. “These businesses rely heavily on immigrant workers, and the measures will disrupt their workforce, causing significant economic losses. In addition, health care facilities in Florida will now be required to track and turn away patients unable to provide proof. Your legal status in the U.S. This policy places an unfair ethical burden to providers who administer medically necessary care and perpetuates discrimination based on immigration status,” said Garcia.
