Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed another win into law this week with legislation that stops Florida governments and businesses from using out-of-state drivers licenses as valid ID for illegals in Florida and stops local municipalities from using tax dollars to hand out state IDs to illegals.
Axios is all upset over the new law that is causing illegal aliens from leaving the state because they can’t use falsified IDs to get work in the state.
The legislation voids out-of-state driver’s licenses for those without proof of citizenship, bars municipalities from using state money to issue identification cards for undocumented immigrants and requires most companies in Florida to verify the immigration status of new hires, among other restrictions.
It also repeals a state law that allowed some undocumented immigrants to obtain a license to practice law in Florida.
Axios, of course, framed the new law in a negative light, saying that the law “Places restrictions on” the “livelihoods” of illegals.
Of course, this seems to ignore the fact that they should be here illegally working in the first place.
No one has a right to work in the U.S. after illegally entering this country. And every job filled by an illegal is a job taken from someone who is legally in this country, whether a citizen of a legal resident.
So, yeah. Ron DeSantis and Florida wins again.
