STATEMENT: FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo on second passing of SB 168

FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement after GOP Senators again voted to advance SB 168 :

"SB 168 is a Trumpian attack on the diversity and inclusiveness that has made Florida great. This bill uses fear, hate, and lies to divide our state — and will make Florida less safe. By demagogically attacking sanctuary cities — which don't even exist in Florida — Republicans are endangering the safety of both immigrant and non-immigrant families in our state."
