Florida Politics

Longwood Republican David Simmons, the Florida Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, still believes in a no-sanctuary cities position for Florida, but he leavens that position with his plans for legislation that would give undocumented immigrantslegal permits to work and drive in Florida. It’s an effort to bring them “out of the shadows” and have them follow state laws. It matters because it would impact about 800,000undocumented immigrants living in this state. It also matters that in a 2020 election year, this could resonate with Florida’s Hispanic voters. Even if Sen. Joe Gruters, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida and Sunshine State suck-up to     Donald Trump, doesn’t exactly approve.
