Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has set the execution date for a man who was convicted of killing and sexually assaulting a teenage girl and one other woman in South Florida in 1984. The execution will take place on June 15 at 6:00 p.m. and will be the fourth execution in the last year by the state.
Gov. DeSantis also signed an immigration crackdown bill that will increase penalties on those aiding in bringing illegal aliens into Florida. If caught, bringing an illegal into Florida brings a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine, with additional penalties for multiple offenses. It also provides $12 million for his program to transport undocumented immigrants from anywhere in the country to another location.

How about we just stick with the undocumented immigrants in Florida and let the other States pay to deal with the ones in their State. Just let the other 49 States that if they send any to Florida, you will send them right back and SUE that State.
$16M for Market Street ‘Placemaking’…$18M for NE Park. Need to find out which COT officials, elected or otherwise, have had a recent significant bank account balance rise
