Gov. DeSantis Signed 3 Bills aimed to Combat Illegal Immigration and Criminal Activities throughout the State

Tallahassee, FL: In Florida, three measures to combat illegal immigration were signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis. In addition to continuing Florida’s initiatives to maintain law and order and combat illegal aliens who commit crimes, these bills take proactive measures in this regard.

Governor Ron DeSantis signed the following bills into law:

  • SB 1036, which enhances penalties for a crime committed by an individual who returns to the country illegally after an initial deportation.
    • A third-degree felony (up to 5 years in prison) after deportation will be charged as a second-degree felony (up to 15 years in prison).
    • A second-degree felony (up to 15 years in prison) after deportation will be charged as a first-degree felony (up to 30 years in prison).
    • A first-degree felony (up to 30 years in prison) after deportation will be charged as a life felony.
    • SB 1036 also enhances penalties for crimes committed in furtherance of drug cartels.
  • HB 1451, which prevents counties and municipalities from accepting ID cards issued to illegal aliens by other jurisdictions.
    • Florida already prohibits local jurisdictions from issuing IDs or driver licenses to illegal immigrants.
  • HB 1589, which increases penalties on individuals who operate a vehicle without a license.
    • Increases the maximum sentence from 60 days in jail to one year in jail for two or more offenses, and a minimum mandatory sentence of ten days in jail for three or more offenses.

Furthermore, in support of Senate Memorial 1020, which urges the United States Secretary of State to designate the drug cartels operating along our southern border as Foreign Terrorist Organizations, Governor DeSantis commended the legislature.
