Out-of-state Americans advised not to travel to Florida due to harsh immigration policy and racism

NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and LULAC (League of United Hispanic Citizens) are warning about the dangers of visiting Florida due to new laws and decisions by state governor Ron DeSantis, reports CNN.

NAACP recommends that out-of-state Americans not visit Florida "in direct response to Gov. Ron DeSantis' aggressive attempts to erase Black history and limit diversity, equity and inclusion programs in Florida schools," the group said in a May 20 written statement.

Fights for education

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has banned the teaching of a course on African American culture and history that was proposed to be introduced in high schools. The move is one of a series of actions aimed at keeping conversations and lessons about race, sexuality and gender identity out of schools across the state, reports Guardian.

Last year, DeSantis signed into law the state's End Discrimination Act, which severely restricts conversations about racial inequality in schools. He takes the same categorical approach towards LGBTQ+ people. Last year, DeSantis signed legislation dubbed "Don't Say Gay" to ban conversations about sexual orientation and gender identity until third grade.

Under DeSantis, Florida banned the teaching of critical racial theory, which recognizes systemic racism as part of American history and challenges the beliefs that allowed it to flourish.

The governor said the concept would teach children that "the country is rotten and our institutions are illegal." He also passed a law banning narratives suggesting that someone is privileged or oppressed based on their race or color.

The NAACP stated that DeSantis' actions "are in direct conflict with Democratic ideals."

A few days before the announcement of the NAACP LULAC urged Americans to refrain from traveling to Florida. This comes after DeSantis signed a new immigration law on May 10, which will take effect on July 1.

Immigration restriction

This law provides:

  • Expansion of the program to move illegal immigrants to other states.
  • Expanding the requirements for businesses with more than 25 employees to use E-Verify, the federal system that determines a person's eligibility to work in the US.
  • Prohibition of local governments from providing money to organizations that issue ID cards to immigrants who do not have permanent legal status in the United States.
  • Florida will not recognize driver's licenses issued to illegal immigrants by other states.
  • Hospitals that accept Medicaid patients must add a question about US citizenship or status to the patient form.

Both LULAC and the NAACP say the DeSantis administration's actions are "hostile" to immigrants and residents of color.

“Florida is openly hostile to African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ people,” the NAACP said in a statement. “Before you travel to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues ​​and marginalizes the contributions and challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”
