Floridians  for  Immigration  Enforcement

When immigration is viewed only racially and culturally, limits and legality will never be imposed.  The debate must focus on limitations and lawfulness, otherwise open borders will make the United States a marketplace and not a country.

FLoridians for IMmigration ENforcement (FLIMEN) is a group of concerned Floridians advocating for immigration enforcement.  The group will also strive to eliminate illegal immigration incentives and will challenge the myths and pandering by elected officials and newspapers.  Please consider signing up for free FLIMEN Alerts.

Palm Beach Sanctuary County Squashes Obamasty Resolution 5-2

Thanks to the many FLIMEN activists and to the many Palm Beach County Tea Party activists who showed up in force to kill Mayor Vana's Resolution supporting President Obama's unconstitutional Executive Orders DACA and DAPA.  Had outraged citizens not attended the Commission no doubt would have passed the resolution so kudos to all of the angry citizens!!!

Commissioners FOR the motion to table indefinitely:
  Steven Abrams
  Vice Mayor Mary Lou Berger
  Hal Valeche
  Priscilla Taylor
  Melissa McKinlay

Commissioners AGAINST the motion to table indefinitely:
  Mayor Shelley Vana
  Paulette Burdick 

The motion to table was made by Commissioner Abrams and seconded by Commissioner Valeche.

Consider thanking those FOR, especially Commissioners Abrams and Valeche.  You might want to remember these votes for future elections.

FLIMEN presented an alternative resolution.

At the beginning of the discussion on the resolution there was discussion as to whether or not Palm Beach County was a sanctuary county.  The County Attorney did not know.  Mayor Vana did not know.  The Mayor asked Brad who was there as the Mayor's immigration expert and he said "no" twice.  Commissioner Abrams was the only one who knew the definition of Sanctuary and he competently had the correct answer "yes."  

A formal sanctuary policy is a written policy enacted a local government body in the form of a resolution, ordinance, or administrative action--general or special orders, or departmental policies.  
Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw on August 6, 2014 released to the press a statement that Palm Beach County Sheriff Office (PBSO, phone 561- 688-3000) would no longer abide by federal detainer requests to turn over criminal aliens to ICE.  PBSO stated "it was no longer obligated to honor the detainers."  That is false.  Sheriff Bradshaw must be using the same "experts" as Mayor Shelly Vana.

Immigration Anarchy Rises Dramatically in Florida.

The number of Sanctuary Cities and Counties in Florida has exploded
from 5 to 12 based on information from DHS.

Immigration Anarchy demonstrates the massive dysfunction of our government and the further decline of our society. When cities and counties flagrantly violate federal immigration law with impunity yet the government punishes bakers for not making a homosexual-topped wedding cake every citizen must fight for the Rule of Law with fervor and unrelenting persistence!!

Oppose PBC Commission Resolution in Support of President Obama's Executive AMNESTY


FLIMEN is supporting the Palm Beach County (PBC) Tea Party in opposition to adoption of a PBC Board of County Commissioners' resolution supporting Obama's unconstitutional Executive Amnesties DACA and DAPA.

Please make the Commission aware of your positions – either by attending the meeting and speaking out, emailing the Commission or by making your friends and organizations aware

It doesn't matter where you live, the PBC Commission needs to hear from outraged US citizens.


  • Email:
  • Call the Commissioners at the phone numbers below.
  • Speak at the commission meeting by filling out comment form before 5:00 PM to speak on item 4A-2.
  • Attend the commission meeting:

    Tuesday, November 3 at 5pm
    301 N Olive 6th Fl, West Palm Beach

Talking Points:

  • The Commission should be supporting the Rule of Law, not lawlessness.

  • Non-enforcement of immigration laws has many huge negative impacts especially to lower wage minority workers.

  • Prior to his Executive Amnesty Order Obama stated 22 times he did not have the power to enact the DACA and DAPA Executive orders.

  • Both of Obama's Executive Amnesties are being litigated and there is no final resolution at this time.  Along with others FLIMEN believes Obama's DACA and DACA initiatives are unconstitutional for the following reasons:
    • Obama's Prosecutorial Discretion is preemptive, cannot declare discretion before an incident occurs
    • Obama's Prosecutorial Discretion must be individually, not en masse
    • Obama's Prosecutorial Discretion must not give a Work Authorization benefit, must only judge on whether to prosecute

On the agenda for the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners' infrequent evening meeting on 11/3/15 is agenda item 4A-2, requested by the Commissioners, in support of President Obama's Executive Order on Immigration. You can see the Agenda Item in it’s entirety here and the entire agenda here.

Join the Disney Boycott and Protest  

FLIMEN is supporting a boycott and protest of Disney.  Disney forced their US workers to train foreign H-1B workers and then fired the US workers.  The boycott and protest is being organized by





Jack Oliver, President of Floridians for a Sustainable Population ( has announced his organization is leading a coalition of grassroots groups and activists who are calling for a nationwide boycott ( and demonstrations to protest the Disney Corporation's decision to fire hundreds of its long-time employees last January and replace them with newly hired foreign workers.
"American Workers Matter," said Oliver, "and the only way to send that message to Disney's management is for American consumers to boycott its amusement parks, movies, and entertainment products across the board." In addition to the boycott, the coalition announced plans to hold protest demonstrations October 17th at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
"Disney is hardly the only corporation eager to save a few bucks by throwing American working families under the bus, while at the same time reporting billions of dollars in corporate profits," continued Oliver. "But we are targeting Disney because it is an iconic American corporation, and because we believe its corporate bosses are betraying the legacy and tarnishing the name of Walt Disney, a great American patriot, who would never stand for this outrageous action if he were still alive," he added.
"We urge people to go to our website: and join the boycott, and also sign up to join one of our Disney protest demonstrations in Anaheim, or Orlando on Oct. 17," said Oliver.
Jack Oliver can be reached at (561) 225-1152; or by email at:

Vanishing Open Spaces in Florida

A Sprawl Study by

The Florida of orchards, grasslands, marshes, pine scrub and open beaches continues to disappear at a rapid rate under the bulldozer’s blade of constant new development. How much of that is related to consumption and development patterns and how much of it is related to the increase in the number of Florida residents is the focus of this study.

Dispelled - Republicans Need AMNESTY and Hispanics to Win Presidency

"But here is the real solution. Romney lost because he did not appeal to the millions of Americans who have seen their standard of living decline over the past decades. They're nervous about the future. When Romney did not address their concerns, they either voted for Obama or didn't vote at all. If the next Republican candidate can address their concerns effectively, he will win. And, amazingly enough, he'll win a lot more Hispanic votes in the process. A lot from other groups, too."

On July 13, 2014 the Center for Immigration Studies ( released the report Who Got the Jobs in Florida?  Florida ranked high in growth 2000-2014, but most employment gains went to immigrants (legal and illegal).

Here are a few highlights of the report:

  • Since the jobs recovery began in 2010, 64 percent of net employment growth among the state's working-age population has gone to immigrants.

  • If the employment rate of natives (16 to 65) in the first quarter of 2014 were what it was in 2000, 768,000 more natives would be working.

  • While agriculture gets a lot of attention in the state, it employs a tiny share of immigrant workers — less than 1 percent.

  • The supply of potential workers in Florida is enormous: half a million native-born college graduates were not working in the first quarter of 2014, as were one million with some college and 1.4 million with no more than a high school education.

  • The labor force participation of black, Hispanic, young, and less-educated workers in Florida show the biggest declines.

To read the full report go to

Do you remember the two cornerstones of Rick Scott’s 2010 campaign? Illegal Immigration and Jobs.

Rick Scott promised to get tough on illegal aliens by enacting an Arizona type immigration law that included mandatory E-Verify for all new hires in Florida. He also pledged to create 700,000 new jobs above projected normal job growth. This was the 7-7-7 plan.

Florida now ranks third in the country on the number of illegal aliens. So make no mistake, these dire job numbers would have looked much better for Florida citizens had Governor Scott kept his promise to enact mandatory E-Verify.

America is now facing a crisis at the border with the current surge of unaccompanied minors’ illegally entering the country to be reunited with family members that previously entered the country illegally. Many of these children will be resettling in Florida unless we take action now.

Please go to where you can sign a petition to Governor Scott and see other actions you can take to stop illegal immigration, thus restoring jobs to American workers.


Second Billboard Blasts Senator Rubio for his "Amnesty First" Immigration Bill


Floridians for Immigration Enforcement ( announced it has put up a second billboard near the Jaguars' Stadium in Jacksonville that blasts Senator Marco Rubio's (R-FL) Senate Bill S.744, the so-called "Gang of Eight" Immigration bill, that would give amnesty to more than 11 million illegal immigrants before any attempt is made to secure the U.S. border against another wave of illegal immigration.


Rubio Amnesty Billboard in Jacksonville Florida 


"Not only did Senator Marco Rubio break his solemn pledge to our organization and Florida Tea Party leaders that he would oppose amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants when he ran for Senate, but he abandoned his promise to make sure the border is secure before considering what to do with illegal immigrants already here," said Floridians for Immigration Enforcement Legislative Director Jack Oliver.


The billboard's text which also can be viewed at, reads:

The Rubio-Obama Immigration Plan

Amnesty: "Right Away"
Border Control: "Someday"
Tell Sen. Rubio NO WAY (904) 398-8586


The billboard location is East-bound Arlington Expressway near the Fairgrounds in Jacksonville, Florida.


"Besides breaking his own promises, Senator Rubio should explain why he trusts the Obama Administration to carry out any promises it makes to control the border after it gets the amnesty it wants, in light of Benghazi and the numerous falsehoods and cover-ups involved in the IRS, Associated Press and Fox News scandals," said Oliver.


"S.744 will only trigger a new wave of illegal immigration,"


"Senator Rubio's 'Amnesty First - Border Control Someday' approach in S.744 will only trigger a new wave of illegal immigration, and should be rejected by anyone who believes that America has the same right to control its borders that every nation on earth does," added Oliver.

Billboard on I-75 in Ocala Attacks Senator Marco 'Amnesty Man' Rubio

Floridians for Immigration Enforcement (FLIMEN) has erected a billboard on I-75 in Ocala attacking Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for sponsoring S.744, the so-called "Gang of Eight" Immigration bill, that would import 33 million foreign workers over the next ten years.

"When 20 million American citizens and legal workers are unemployed or desperately trying to find full time jobs it is both callous and irresponsible for Florida Senator Marco to sponsor an immigration bill that will flood the labor market with 33 million foreign workers over the next ten years," said Floridians for Immigration Enforcement Legislative Director Jack Oliver.

"The 33 million additional green cards is a very conservative estimate of the future impact on the US labor market," added Oliver. "It doesn't even include temporary work visas which according to an analysis by U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) will add another 25 million temporary skilled and unskilled work visas over the next ten years. This bill is Armageddon for the American workforce," continued Oliver. "I predict that no politician who votes for the Senate immigration bill will ever be elected to higher office."

"Marco Rubio's backing for this mass amnesty also is a complete betrayal of the solemn promise he made to me, other members of our board, and several Tea Party leaders that he would never support amnesty when he met with us privately face to face in 2009," said Oliver.

Citizens are urged to call Sen. Rubio's Orlando office (407) 254-2573 and tell him AMERICANS need those jobs.

There are numerous reports that Senator Rubio's Washington DC office does not answer the phone line and the voice mail is always full.  You can also call Senator Rubio's other field offices at:

Has the Republican Party surrendered to Obama on immigration?



The way the Republican Party is attempting to "rebrand" is essentially surrendering to Obama on immigration and abandoning the American worker.  


  GOP calls for AMNESTY 

GOP is the new Democratic Party?

"The Republican National Committee endorsed amnesty on Monday through its report entitled "Growth & Opportunity" that analyzes the 2012 election results. In the report, the Party concluded that it needs to do a better job reaching out to minorities and young people, and comprehensive immigration reform that includes an amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens is one way to do just that."


FLIMEN Note:  The following article by William Gheen of ALIPAC is a raw and brutally truthful analysis of pro-AMNESTY Republicans.  Mr. Gheen correctly labels FOX News as pro-AMNESTY which invalidates the FOX claim of "Fair and Balanced."  Mr. Gheen also correctly rejects the Rand/Rubio claim that amnestied illegal aliens won't be voting.  It is clear that the Obama/Rubio Doomsday AMNESTY will destroy not only the Republican Party but the United States of America.

 Rubio and Rand's Trick To Lead Conservatives To Their Own Doom

  • "If you turn on Fox News, you won't find me there anymore even though I was a regular guest up until shortly after Murdoch announced his support for Bloomberg's amnesty plans in early 2012. In fact, you will almost never spot a any guest on Fox that opposes Comprehensive Immigration Reform and all the major hosts like Sean Hannity and Bill Oreilly."
  • "The dangerous poison Rubio and Rand are selling to the conservative base is the false belief that illegal immigrants can be somehow given legal presence without ever becoming voters in US elections."


  • "In other words, even if Republicans do some leading on immigration reform, and even if they provide votes, the political credit - or a large share of it - will accrue to Obama. There's not much in government the public doesn't attribute to the president. If immigration reform is passed, then he - and not his Republican partners - will receive most of the praise."
  • "If the AFL-CIO boss and their Democrat cronies gets their way, not only would their be a "pathway to citizenship," illegals would get free ObamaCare, guest workers would be paid more than American workers-and guest workers would be able to bring their families along to the U.S. as well."


IF YOU CARE ABOUT USA AND OUR CHILDREN'S FUTURE call Florida Senator Marco Rubio and ask him to withdraw from his AMNESTY bill, tell him how you and our children are the victims, and tell him you are disappointed he has done the exact opposite of his anti-AMNESTY campaign promise, at:

High legal and illegal immigration levels have thrown the American worker under the bus and
the Obama/Rubio AMNESTY will throw our children and grandchildren under a convoy of 18-wheelers

 The liberal opinion media and others unabashedly promote ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ as a solution for 11+ million victimized ‘undocumented workers,’ blah, blah, but never, never elaborate on the huge, negative, long-term impacts of AMNESTY to US citizens and their children. 


1)    Be a continuation of the long history of non-enforcement of US immigration laws (,,


2)    Incentivize millions upon millions more to violate our borders and work without paying taxes, etc.,  (

3)    Allow legal immigrants (Permanent Residents) after a period of time to petition to bring in their mother, father, brothers, sisters, adult children or infant children which is estimated as high as 55 million often impoverished and illiterate persons over the next two decades to overwhelm our already overwhelmed social benefit system, ( and,

4)    Continue to drain our nearly bankrupt governments (


 The pro-AMNESTY forces outspend pro-enforcement forces by about 300-1.  Unions want more union members to replenish their diminishing ranks.  The Catholic Church wants a bigger flock.  The Democratic Party wants more Democratic voters.  Pro-foreign worker Republicans want more exploitable and cheaper workers.  AND AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE THE VICTIMS when they have to pay the taxes and get displaced by foreign workers who undercut their livelihood.

SMASH Obama/Rubio Illegal Alien Golden Parachute and Employment Acts of 2013

Citizens have stopped AMNESTY since 2000 and we intent to SMASH Obama/Rubio Illegal Alien Golden Parachute and Employment Acts of 2013.  While the bills have yet to be filed and would never be named as such, doesn't the title seem accurate from a citizen's perspective?  Needless to say this will be our toughest fight ever.  To a substantial degree the future of America's children depend on our efforts.

Current Links:

"It is expected that Cubans may try to go to third countries and that many of them will try to make it to the U.S. from there but how easy that will be is also yet to be seen."

FLIMEN Note: Another Mariel in the making?  Maybe not of the same scope but a real danger.  It is long overdue that the Cuban Adjustment Act be repealed but of course neither the Democratic nor Republican party would pander to citizens by repealing a biased and ineffective relic of the cold war that could possibly offend immigrants.

Rep. Radel supports Senator Rubio's effort to "fill the void for labor here in the United States.” 

FLIMEN Note: What labor shortage?

"Today we not only see Rubio having changed his position on immigration we see him as the GOP face of immigration reform."

FLIMEN Note:  There will be many FLIMEN Alerts forthcoming detailing Senator Rubio's blocking of immigration enforcment bills as House Speaker and his campaign lie that he opposes AMNESTY.

FLIMEN Note: The video "They Come to America" blows "The Lid Off Illegal Immigration" but of course the liberal opinion industry (because news and journalism are dead) refuse to acknowledge the video and the negative impacts of illegal immigration.

E-Verify is about protecting the jobs of legal workers, so there are really only two sides to this issue.  Elected officials support the hiring of illegal aliens or the hiring of fellow citizens. Many Floridians and their families are hurting. They have lost their jobs, they have lost their health insurance, and they have lost their homes.  At the end of the day, if elected officials are unwilling to protect our jobs, then maybe it's time that those elected officials lost their jobs.

Jack Oliver, FLIMEN Legislative Director


E-Verify Summary:

1. E-Verify is a highly successful federal program where employers are required to confirm the legal status of new hires.

2. E-Verify effectively addresses the main enabler of illegal immigration -- The Job Magnet.

3. E-Verify has been successfully utilized in about 17 states, many municipalities and more than 238,000 employers who voluntarily enrolled.

4. E-Verify is highly accurate at 98.3%.

5. E-Verify is totally non-discriminatory as all new hires are verified.

6. E-Verify applies the pro-enforcement principal of 'Attrition by Enforcement' which means illegal aliens will self-deport when they cannot hold jobs here. It is also a deterrent to potential illegal entrants seeking jobs.

7. E-Verify covers only new hires which allows employers to phase into legality without drastic upheaval to the employer or industry.

8. E-Verify has improved significantly and will continue to be improved.

9. E-Verify is a modern on-line extension of the I-9 system that has, since 1986, required employers to verify employment eligibility.

10.  The legality of E-Verify was affirmed when the US Supreme Court on May 26, 2011 ruled in favor of the Arizona E-Verify law:

2) Florida's Illegal Alien Hiring Halls Section

Florida Illegal Alien Hiring Halls

As of November 1, 2013 there are two taxpayer-supported illegal alien hiring halls in Florida, one in Jupiter and one in Cutler Bay (Miami).  The Loxahatchee Groves Illegal Alien Hiring Hall closed.  The Lake Worth Illegal Alien Hiring Hall closed  December 31, 2010.  The proposed West Palm Beach Illegal Alien Hiring Hall thankfully never materialized.

FLIMEN and many Lake Worth citizens were very active in opposing the Lake Worth Illegal Alien Hiring Hall.  Finally, on October 5, 2010 the Lake Worth City Commission voted to shut down the Lake Worth Illegal Alien Hiring Hall.  The reason being that Lake Worth was nearing bankruptcy and needed the facilities for legitimate services.  FLIMEN VP David Caulkett attended the final hearing and stated:

"The Lake Worth Illegal Alien Hiring Hall is closing because of near bankruptcy, not because of principles. Perhaps if elected officials in Lake Worth and throughout the USA diligently applied principles, we might have a fiscally healthy nation, instead of waiting up to the moment of bankruptcy."

Per Lake Worth labor center told to move out of city shuffleboard building:

LAKE WORTH - The Lake Worth Resource Center must move out of the shuffleboard building by the end of this year, city commissioners decided Tuesday night. Commissioners ended leases for the day-labor center and three organizations that use space in the City Hall Annex in a 4-1 vote, with Commissioner Cara Jennings dissenting.

The Jupiter Illegal Alien Hiring Hall was the first in Florida and is known as the 'El Sol Model' where supporters try to proliferate the 'day labor centers' to other Florida municipalities in a misguided attempt to combat on-the-street job solicitation by unlawfully present foreign nationals. 

Legitimizing illegal hiring by officially sanctioning illegal alien hiring halls is not a solution.  Consider:

  • The effect of hiring illegal foreign workers lowers the wages and benefits of American workers.

  • Significant costs to taxpayers include public education, emergency health care and law enforcement.  See Impacts.

  • Illegal alien hiring halls are exacerbating the problem by providing a job magnet to further the illegal invasion. 

  • The illegal hiring transactions are a federal felony

When will the El Sol Plague reach your neighborhood?

The Lake Worth, Loxahatchee Groves and Cutler Bay halls were modeled after the El Sol model.  

El Sol proponents seemingly are seeking to rival McDonald's expansion plans.  Per a September 16, 2006 Palm Beach (Com)Post editorial:

"El Sol has the chance to be the model for Lake Worth, West Palm Beach and cities throughout South Florida that realize the corrosive effects of ignoring a problem that isn't going away."


Because the Jupiter El Sol model is a root cause of the proliferations, citizen opponents and FLIMEN have made it a priority to shut down El Sol.  For more information:
