Lawsuit Filed Against Florida Law Restricting Undocumented Immigrants’ Rights

Immigrant advocates have initiated a lawsuit challenging a newly approved Florida law that imposes restrictions on undocumented migrants and their families, limiting their access to employment, transportation, and medical services.

The lawsuit seeks an injunction to halt the implementation of Section 10 of SB1718, the specific provision that criminalizes the transportation of individuals who entered the United States unlawfully. This legal action, filed by five pro-immigrant organizations including the Southern Poverty Law Center, argues that Section 10 is unconstitutional at its core.

The lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of Section 10, aiming to protect the rights and liberties of undocumented immigrants affected by the new law. This legal action follows prior community protests calling for clemency and justice prior to the law’s enactment on July 1st, 2023.
