DeSantis Set to Sign “Sanctuary Cities” Bill

first_imgGovernor Ron DeSantis is set to sign legislation on Friday banning so-called sanctuary cities in Florida.A member of his team confirmed that much, and said that Senate sponsor Joe Gruters, a Sarasota Republican who serves as chairman of the state’s Republican Party, will be with the Governor and Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz for the bill-signing ceremony in Okaloosa County.DeSantis promised during his gubernatorial campaign to make the ban a priority of his administration.The state House and Senate passed the bill on May 2. Under the new law, local governments would be required to “use their best efforts to support the enforcement of federal immigration law.”Although Gruters says that the estimated 200,000 undocumented immigrants living in our state do not need to fear the bill if they do not break the law, Democrats argue that minor offenses such as jaywalking or driving without a license could result in deportation.The bill, officially known as SB 168, expands on DeSantis’ efforts to increase cooperation between our state’s legislature and federal immigration authorities. That includes encouraging local law-enforcement agencies and the Florida Department of Corrections to enter into cooperative agreements that would allow local and state correctional officers to perform some duties that are currently exclusive to federal immigration agents.According to DeSantis spokeswoman Helen Ferre, “Earlier this year, Governor DeSantis asked the Florida Legislature to present him with meaningful legislation to uphold the rule of law and ensure that no city or county jurisdiction can get in the way of Florida’s cooperation with our federal partners to enforce immigration law. Public safety is paramount and local law enforcement agencies can and should work with the federal government to ensure that accountability and justice are one in our state.”last_img read more

Brathwaite pair rescue Windies, but Aussies in control

first_img Off-spinner Nathan Lyon has been the most successful bowler with two for 68. West Indies once again had a dodgy start, losing the right-handed Hope in the morning’s fifth over, sparring at an out-swinger from seamer Josh Hazlewood and nicking a catch behind. Brathwaite and Bravo then countered with dominant stroke-play as West Indies enjoyed one of their finest sessions of the series. Emerging from a typical watch start, Brathwaite blossomed nicely to stroke 10 fours in an innings lasting 174 balls, while Bravo showed glimpses of his good form in a 95-ball innings, which contained six fours. Bravo twice drove pacer James Pattinson for exquisite offside boundaries in the 11th over before aggressively pulling the same bowler through mid-on for another four, in the right-armer’s next over. Brathwaite was uncharacteristically audacious, twice coming down to Lyon and lifting the bowler back overhead for boundaries. He brought up his second half-century of the series and eighth in Tests in the third over before lunch when he punched Mitchell Marsh to the ropes at point and then followed up with a couple to square leg. Unbeaten on 32 at lunch with West Indies on 92 for one, Bravo added just one after the resumption before falling in the third over at 104 for two, caught by Usman Khawaja at backward square as he failed to keep down a pull off Pattinson. West Indies then threatened to implode. They lost Marlon Samuels for four before rain forced an early tea break, and then lost a further three wickets following the resumption. Samuels, with a wretched 31 runs from four innings in the series, steered Lyon to Hazlewood at point and immediately set off for a non-existent run. Both he and Brathwaite started and stopped before Samuels was left stranded by the throw to the keeper’s end. On 115 for three at the tea break, West Indies looked to be flourishing afterwards when Jermaine Blackwood pulled Lyon and drove Pattinson for boundaries in moving to 10. An error in judgement caused his downfall, however, offering no stroke to one from Lyon that ripped back to hit the off stump with West Indies on 131 for four. Kraigg Brathwaite added 27 for the fifth wicket with Ramdin before he, too, perished at the hands of Lyon, gloving a cut to captain Steve Smith at first slip off one that bounced. SYDNEY, Australia (CMC): Opener Kraigg Brathwaite stroked an enterprising half-century but West Indies’ batting wobbled to give Australia the advantage on the opening day of the final Test here yesterday. Opting to bat first, the Caribbean side finished the rain-hit day at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 207 for six, with the right-handed Brathwaite top-scoring with 85. All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite, in his second Test, was unbeaten on a cameo run-a-ball 35 and was partnered by wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin on 23. Left-hander Darren Bravo also sparkled, albeit briefly, in scoring an attractive 33. He and Kraigg Brathwaite put on 91 for the second wicket following the early loss of Shai Hope for nine but the familiar middle-order collapse followed, with the Windies losing five wickets for 55 runs, to slump to 159 for six in the final session. However, Carlos Brathwaite and Ramdin came together in a seventh-wicket stand currently worth 48 to stall Australia’s progress and ensure West Indies were still afloat at the close. Lyon in top form BRILLIANT CATCH With one run added 15 balls later, captain Jason Holder was brilliantly caught low down by Joe Burns at forward short leg for one, off a firm leg-side push off left-arm spinner Steve O’Keefe. Tottering, West Indies were rescued for the second straight Test by the authoritative Carlos Brathwaite, who counter-attacked to pull the innings around. The right-hander, who got a half-century on debut in the Melbourne second Test last week, blasted four fours and two sixes, while Ramdin played a supporting role, facing 72 deliveries and counting two fours. Brathwaite was off the mark in style, clearing the ropes back overhead with O’Keefe off the second ball he faced and then twice swept the same bowler behind square for boundaries in later overs. In the day’s final over, he deposited O’Keefe several rows back and followed up with a full-blooded cut to the point boundary, as West Indies finished strongly.last_img read more
