The first migrant “victim” of the SB1718 lawsigned into law by the administration of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, It would be a Mexican who is currently detained.
The undocumented is exposed to deportationas reported this Friday by the Telemundo network.
The Hispanic was stopped for a traffic violationbut he was accused of human trafficking after agents detected other undocumented immigrants in his car.
The foreigner was seized in mid-August by agents of the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) in Hernando County, adds the WFLA report.
The station identified him as Raquel López Aguilar..
The man remains incarcerated at the Hernando County Detention Center on $10,000 bond Dollars.
López Aguilar, originally from Chiapas, is accused of transporting illegal immigrants from Georgia to Florida.
“It is the first case of which we are aware, and it is the first Mexican who is a “victim” of this law…that as the lawyers have said It is against the Constitution of the United Statessince the states do not have migratory faculties ”, confirmed to the Hispanic media Juan Sabines, consul of Mexico in Orlando.
Section 10 of the law qualifies as “trafficking in persons” the transfer of undocumented immigrants to Florida.
The statute establishes criminal penalties for a person who knowingly and knowingly transports into the state another person who knows, or reasonably should know, that they have entered the United States in violation of the law and that has not been inspected by the Federal Government since its trespassing or trespassing. Persons who engage in this type of action face third degree felony charges.
Legislation makes it a third degree felony for a first offense (of knowingly transporting an undocumented person into the state) and a separate offense for each individual the person transports to Florida.
That is not the only provision of the law, branded as racist and anti-immigrant by activists and groups representing this population.
The legislation also requires the use of the E-Verify system for all employers with 25 or more employees. Also, the measure – which entered into force on July 1 – prohibits local governments from issuing identification cards to undocumented immigrants; invalidates cards already issued to undocumented immigrants in other states; and requires hospitals to collect and submit data on the costs of medical services to members of this population group.
DeSantis argues that the law seeks to combat the dangerous effects of illegal immigration caused by reckless border policies by federal authorities.
