Governor DeSantis Signed A Bill Banning Sanctuary Cities In Florida On June 14, 2019 Yet 27 Sanctuary Cities And Counties Remain Today

By Dave Levine

The Dave Levine Show strongly supports Governor DeSantis in his efforts to rid his state of illegal aliens. However, DeSantis signed the Sanctuary Cities Ban bill on June 14, 2019. Now he’s talking about Sanctuary Cities again.

I checked out Steve Salvi’s http://ojjpac.org, THE site for Sanctuary Cities in the U.S., and found there still to be 27 Sanctuary Cities and Counties in The Sunshine State.
