The Florida State Senate has passed a bill 22-18 that will ban “sanctuary cities” in the state.
The move is a reversal of course for the legislative body, as the issue had been killed for the past four years. The Florida State House passed a similar bill on Wednesday.
BREAKING: Florida Senate passes a ban on so-called sanctuary cities on a 22-18 vote, reversing course on an issue that it has killed for four consecutive years.
Only one Republican, @anitere_flores, sided with Democrats on the vote.
