Gallagher Issues Immigration Plan



Gubernatorial candidate Tom Gallagher, campaigning in Pensacola Friday, issued a four-part immigration plan, expanding on his initial pledge to establish an Office of Security and Preparedness. The plan, according to a press release:

1. Give Florida law enforcement officers the power to arrest and detain those who have violated federal immigration law.
2. Expand Florida’s anti-illegal immigration law enforcement partnership with the Department of Homeland Security.
3. No hiring of illegal aliens by those who contract with the government. 4. Continue to work with our neighbors in Latin America and the Caribbean to encourage democracy and trade.
