Floridians  for  Immigration  Enforcement
FLIMEN Logo

When immigration is viewed only racially and culturally, limits and legality will never be imposed.  The debate must focus on limitations and lawfulness, otherwise open borders will make the United States a marketplace and not a country.

FLoridians for IMmigration ENforcement (FLIMEN) is a group of concerned Floridians advocating for immigration enforcement.  The group will also strive to eliminate illegal immigration incentives and will challenge the myths and pandering by elected officials and newspapers.  Please consider signing up for free FLIMEN Alerts.

Outrageously Bad News

E-Verify for Florida Goes Down in CRC Flames

Continuing a long-standing tradition of squashing E-Verify, the Shamber of Commerce orchestrated another death march for E-Verify in Florida. E-Verify Proposal 29 went down in flames, 12-24, at the Constitutional Revision Commission (CRC) meeting on April 16, 2018.

Floridians for Immigration Enforcement has unsuccessfully fought for the E-Verify employment eligibility verification system in Florida for over 10 years and every attempt has been killed, typically in the Florida Senate. In recent years Floridians for E-Verify Now has worked tirelessly on the issue.

While the Chamber of Commerce (AKA Shamber of Commerce) lead the lobbying effort they had ample support from agricultural interests, ACLU, construction interests and others.

While E-Verify started out very popular in the CRC process opposition grew as Chamber of Commerce lobbyists visited the Commissioners. Votes were 6-0, 19-13, and lastly 12-24.

The Chamber of Commerce launched an effective misinformation campaign. The Chamber states that their organization supports E-Verify at the national level but not the state level. They oppose E-Verify in Florida, or any state, because that would result in a patchwork of laws unfriendly to business. The truthful information is that any employer who signs up for E-Verify may use E-Verify in any state. So where's the patchwork? None, it's just another manufactured argument.

Further, the Chamber spread dire statements of high costs and devastating negative effects which have NOT shown up in the seven E-Verify states surrounding Florida (LA, MS, TN, AL, GA, SC, and NC).

There are a myriad of other essentially manufactured arguments against E-Verify including inaccuracy, new mandate on employers, racist, costly, shortage of Ag workers, and many more. Over a period of years the objections against E-Verify have been comprehensively refuted to no avail.The reason as most already know is that the draw of cheap labor easily overwhelms and can easily out lobby public interest.

Two prominent Florida Republicans voted against E-Verify. Do you remember Carlos Beruf the candidate who widely touted and heavily advertised his pro-enforcement immigration stand during his 2016 Senatorial campaign. Yes, that Carlos Beruf voted against E-Verify. Florida's esteemed Attorney General Pam Bondi, the one often on TV touting the rule of law, voted against E-Verify. To further their hypocrisy, as well as their loyalty to the Chamber over Florida workers, both Beruf and Bondi voted to put Greyhound Racing Ban and Indoor Vaping Ban on the ballot for voters to choose. Wow, let's hope their hypocrisy becomes a stain on their political careers just like AMNESTY has and will remain Rubio's albatross forever.

Here are the final voting results;

CRC Final Vote on Employment Eligilibity Verification

CRC Final Vote on Employment Eligilibity Verification

Thanks to the masses of Floridians who helped get E-Verify as far as the final CRC step. It's just sad that after 12 years of effort that powerful moneyed factions still condone illegal hiring at the huge detriment of Florida's citizens.
