Florida AG proposed tougher curbs against illegals


By Barbara Liston

ORLANDO | Wed Aug 11, 2010 2:38pm EDT

ORLANDO (Reuters) - Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum on Wednesday proposed tougher curbs against illegal migrants in his melting-pot state which he said would go "one step further" than a similar contested Arizona law.

"Florida will not be a sanctuary state for illegal aliens," added McCollum, accompanied by Representative Will Snyder.

The legislation will require Florida law enforcement officials to check a suspected illegal immigrant's status in the course of a stop, or a violation of another law. This goes beyond the existing situation in the state where officers are allowed to check immigration status, but not required to.

1. This is going to come down to a red state-blue state thing
And you can forget the states that were blue temporarily in 2008. The only really blue states are the ones that went for Dukakis in 1988. The rest are going to pass whatever laws it takes to keep from becoming havens for illegal immigrants.
