Listen to this show.

 This was our best show yet with some serious guests.   
YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.  The Florida Immigration Bill (if passed) EXEMPTS Canadians from having to prove legal status in Florida! Rep. Snyder called it a matter of comfort. 

This week’s guests included:

  • Florida Rep. William Snyder (R), the author of Florida version of Arizona’s Immigration Bill
  • David Caulkett, Floridians for Immigration Enforcement (FLIMEN, self-described anti-“Amnesty” group
  • Felipe Matos, Students Working for Equal Right, Trail of DREAMS
For a full draft of the bill check here.  The Canadian provision is on the bottom of page 2 and top of page 3.  

After that we spoke with the founder of the FLIMEN and Felipe Matos.  Here is the thing, in our opinion immigrants aren’t the problem, the exploitation that allows immigrants to be hired below minimum wage, mistreated on the job, and overworked is the problem.  Funny thing is, David Caulkett sort of agreed.  But we still disagreed with the solution to this mess that hurts immigrants and citizens alike.  

Lastly check out some links:

Finally a dedication to Solomon Burke, who passed away last weekend called “none of us are free”.

  • Florida Rep. William Snyder (R), the author of Florida version of Arizona’s Immigration Bill
  • David Caulkett, Floridians for Immigration Enforcement (FLIMEN, self-described anti-“Amnesty” group
  • Felipe Matos, Students Working for Equal Right, Trail of DREAMS

We are the FIRST show to ask Representative Snyder why his bill allows Canadian and European (aka “visa-waiver”) immigrants in Florida to be given a pass by law enforcement under the bill’s provisions.  Yep, if the bill passes, Latino immigrants have to prove to Police that they are legal in the country, but Canadian immigrants and most European immigrants don’t.
