Sandy Adams Florida’s True Leader for Immigration Reform
Sandy Adams has a record of taking on the tough issues. Illegal immigration is a critical example. While others talk about what they would do to tackle the problem of illegal immigration, Sandy can point to what she already has done. As a former sheriff’s detective, Sandy knows how critical it is to enforce all laws, especially those that protect our borders and keep citizens safe. Sandy is the only candidate in the race for Congress with that kind of front-line experience.
In the Florida Legislature, Sandy continued the fight against illegal immigration by supporting the use of E-verify and introducing legislation similar to Arizona’s current immigration law. Sandy has been the leading voice against illegal immigration in the state of Florida. In 2007, she began filing legislation that would combat illegal immigration and has led the fight each year. In 2010, HB 219 passed the Florida House and would forbid the state of Florida from entering into any contracts with any company that does not verify the status of their workers. This bill passed the Florida House on a unanimous bipartisan vote of 112-0.
We also need to address the businesses that knowingly hire them, like construction companies, hotels, restaurants and others. Many times, these companies will pay the illegal workers almost nothing, knowing that they can’t complain or report the employer. Curtailing abusive companies from hiring illegal immigrants helps protect both sides; employees from abuse and employers from hiring illegal immigrants in the first place.
Sandy also knows that this is not just an economic issue; it is also a national security one. Since the federal government has failed in its duty to defend our border, Sandy supports Arizona’s immigration law. Sandy has always been committed to defending and serving our country and just like in Tallahassee; she will lead the fight in Washington D.C. to make our country safe.
