ORLANDO, Fla. — Several families are opting to pack up and leave Florida before a new immigration law takes effect on July 1.
It requires certain businesses to use a federal system to check the immigration status of their workers. The law also toughens criminal penalties for people who bring undocumented immigrants into the state.
Gov. Ron DeSantis has called it the strongest anti-illegal immigration legislation in the country.
A woman who wants to remain anonymous but share her story said the impacts are coming in just a matter of days due to Senate Bill 1718.
