Friday was a day of celebration -- both for President Donald Trump and conservatives in the state of Florida.

Fulfilling one of his campaign promises, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed one of the most monumental bills of the legislation session into law: Banning sanctuary cities in the state of Florida.

The , spearhead by Sen Joe Gruters and Rep. Cord Byrd, will reestablish the rule of law in the state of Florida, requiring local governments to honor requests from federal immigration authorities to detain people who are thought to be in the United States illegally. The bill also requires local jails to fully comply with requests to hold inmates for federal immigration authorities.
