DeSantis Just Issued A HUGE Ultimatum To Companies In Florida…

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) sent letters to multiple companies in December 2022, requesting that they provide documentation demonstrating compliance with the state’s e-verify laws.

After accepting a job offer, private employers are required by law to verify a person’s employment eligibility by proving their legal residence in the United States.

Nonetheless, some businesses have failed to comply with the law.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis stated that companies would face more severe consequences if they did not comply with the law in the near future, prompting the DEO to send out letters giving companies one final deadline before losing licenses required to conduct business in the Sunshine State.

The letter was sent to a number of prominent businesses in the state, including Prestige Cruise Services LLC, Upperline Health Inc, and the American Red Cross.

Here is more from Breitbart:

Florida is threatening to suspend licenses for businesses failing to provide proof of E-Verify compliance, which ensures they are not employing illegal immigrants. It comes as part of its greater effort to protect Florida residents and their jobs as the nation faces a mass immigration crisis on the southern border.

The Department of Economic Opportunity sent letters to several businesses, flagging the various companies for “repeat non-responsiveness” to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).

“If you persist and fail to respond to the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), there will be significant consequences,” the letters reads, warning that the notice serves as the “final opportunity to respond before consequences are initiated.”

It adds that the DEP will “not grant any extensions” or excuses for nonresponses. The companies had one month from the date of the letter to provide an affidavit stating the company will comply with the law and terminate the employment of illegal aliens.
