The travel advisory comes in relation to two bills — Senate Bill 168 and House Bill 527 . According to the Orlando Sentinel , after negotiations between the two branches, lawmakers will need to reach agreement on a final version by the end of this week. Stay tuned! The ACLU has warned that people of color and immigrants may find themselves more likely to be racially profiled by police officers and detained without a judicial determination of probable cause . The travel website, Fodor’s , notes that “If the ACLU recommends that you should be cautious when traveling to a place, we tend to agree with them. If you’re planning to travel to Florida soon, here’s what you need to know:
If stopped by authorities in Florida, you do NOT have to disclose where you were born, if you’re a U.S. citizen, or how you got into the country. However, if an immigration agent requests your immigration papers, you are required to disclose them (though you can say that you’d like to remain silent). If you’re not an intended target of these bills, be vigilant and speak up if you witness something unlawful.”
