Committee Chairman Anitere Flores, R-Miami, last month retooled the legislation to require only the presentation of a driver's license as proof of eligibility to work. Flores' "strike-all" of the mandatory E-Verify screening provision outraged Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, which is now calling on Senate President Mike Haridopolos to rein her in.
In automated phone messages and a video (above), FLIMEN says illegal immigration is costing the state $5.5 billion a year, and urges Floridians to contact Haridopolos to get the E-Verify legislation back on track.
