State Senator Anitere Flores, the chair of the Miami-Dade legislative delegation, will discuss the issues they will work on this year in Tallahassee.

Senator Flores will discuss Friday’s meeting where she and  her fellow state senators and state house members heard from more than 30 community groups about the needs not being addressed in areas such as child welfare, mental health, health and human services and the criminal justice system.

DeFede also took a look at illegal immigration.

A bill has been filed in Tallahassee that would make it a felony, punishable by up to 30 years in prison, to remain in the state of Florida after receiving a deportation order from the federal government.

Our guests will be Francesca Menes, from the Florida Immigrant Coalition, and Julio, who has remained in this country after receiving a deportation order and is about to graduate from FIU.

Under this bill he could be arrested and imprisoned.
