New crackdown law could see drivers hit with 5 years in jail and $5k fine for traveling with a certain type of passenger


FLORIDA officials have doubled down on a road law that states that drivers can never have an illegal immigrant inside their car.

If any driver is found transporting someone who is unlawfully in the sunshine state, they could face five years in jail and a $5,000 fine.

The road law came to light after civil rights groups asked a judge to throw out the ruling, claiming that it could make it unsafe for people to receive medical care, meet with family, and go to work, CBS News reports.
