DeSantis pushes 'strongest' illegal immigration crackdown ahead of 2024 election

The Florida legislature is moving swiftly to pass legislation endorsed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and billed as the nation's strongest crackdown on illegal immigration any state has ever undertaken.

DeSantis's aim is to push through more immigration restrictions this spring than ever seen before in the "modern history of Florida." He'll do so by building the legal version of a physical wall — blocking avenues of inclusion for illegal immigrants and making their livelihood much more difficult in the Sunshine State.

Debuting his policy plan on Feb. 23, the congressman-turned-governor said Florida will lead the way in countering the border crisis under President Joe Biden and deterring illegal immigrants from making Florida their destination.
