Demings Misleads Floridians on Her Record on Crime & the Border in Latest Ad

MIAMI, FLA. — Val Demings’ latest ad proves she’ll go to any lengths to mislead Floridians if it helps her win in November. 

The ad touts Demings’ previous support of Kate’s Law, which would enhance penalties for convicted and deported criminals who reenter the United States illegally.

But while Demings may have supported Kate’s Law, on that very same day she voted against H.R. 3003, which would force sanctuary cities to comply with federal immigration laws, effectively canceling out Kate’s Law in certain parts of the country. 

Politico reported at the time that H.R. 3003 “targets so-called sanctuary cities and would force them to comply with federal immigration laws, including requests to detain suspected undocumented immigrants for 48 hours beyond their scheduled release. Florida Democrats all voted against it.”

“The one example Congresswoman Demings can point to of ‘standing up to her party’ is a bill she preemptively voted to undercut the very same day by allowing sanctuary cities to evade federal immigration laws. Val Demings has been nothing but a rubberstamp for the Democrats’ radical, open-borders agenda in the House, and she’d do the same in the Senate,” said Elizabeth Gregory, communications director for Marco Rubio for Senate.
