Florida judge struck down law as racist

An immigration law was struck down by Judge Beth Bloom of Florida on the grounds that the measure was racially motivated.

Bloom on 21 September rejected sections of the law that prohibit local government sanctuary policies and require local authorities to do everything possible to cooperate with federal immigration agents.

The office of Governor Ron DeSantis, who signed the law into law in 2019 as a priority for his administration, said it would appeal the decision.

The judge repeatedly specified that the law was racially motivated and that its supporters failed to provide any evidence as to why it was necessary to reduce crime, as well as pointing out that the measure was guided by hate and anti-immigrant groups such as the group Floridians for Immigration Enforcement.
