Each week, the Orlando Sentinel asks two questions of 100 community leaders in Central Florida. Those with access to the online Sentinel can read all of this week’s 100-word responses when there are published online, usually late Saturday. For those without access, my responses are below. Selected responses, such as the one below,appear in the Sunday print edition.
What was the biggest story of the week?
In Tallahassee, legislative conservatives have been bartering over how ugly they can be in oppressing Florida immigrants. Determined to force local law enforcement to do the job of federal agencies, proposals would require detaining those suspected of being undocumented, overriding local community decisions to be Sanctuary Cities. Sanctuary Cities increase safety by making it safe for all residents to work with police. They reduce unnecessary harassment of citizens and those with documents when, because of name, language, and appearance they are “suspected” of being undocumented. Local municipalities must have the ability to make the policies most suited to their community.
What will be the biggest story in the coming week?
The series focuses on state and local news.
