Commissioner Chris Hall, with the resilient support of others brought back this bill having seen it fail before, (since the plandemic began), with the previous group of Commissioners.

This time round, Commissioner Burt Saunders voted against the ordinance as he had done last time, but Commissioners Chris Hall, Bill McDaniel, Dan Kowal and Rick LoCastro (who also served as Collier County Commissioner Chairman) voted in favor of the ordinance for a 4-1 win on behalf of the People of Collier County. 

Someday, some of those who opposed the ordinance will be thankful for those who supported it and had it passed.

Crystal K Kinzel, Clerk of Courts office witnessed the Chairmans signature.

Here is the verbiage below from the Signed Ordinance, which was recorded / filed with the Florida Secretary of States office on August 24th 2023.

 

 

 ORDINANCE NO. 2023-____ 39

AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF COLLIER COUNTY, FLORIDA, ESTABLISHING COLLIER COUNTY AS A BILL OF RIGHTS SANCTUARY COUNTY

WHEREAS the Collier County Board of County Commissioners has growing concerns over the federal government’s increasing encroachment on the rights and privileges of its citizens; and,

WHEREAS of particular concern are those edicts being promulgated by the federal government in the form of executive orders, which circumvent the legislative process and arguably violate the fundamental American doctrine of separation of powers; and,

WHEREAS Article I, Section 1 of the Florida State Constitution recognizes that, “[a]ll political power is inherent in the people…”; and,

WHEREAS the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”; and,

WHEREAS “… federalism protects the liberty of the individual from arbitrary power…[and a]n individual has a direct interest in objecting to laws that upset the constitutional balance between the National Government and the States when the enforcement of those laws causes injury that is concrete, particular, and redressable. Fidelity to principles of federalism is not for the States alone to vindicate.” Bond v. United States, 564 U.S. 211, 222, 131 S. Ct. 2355, 2364-65 (2011); and,

WHEREAS “[t]he structural principles secured by the separation of powers protect the individual as well.” Id.; and,

WHEREAS the State of Florida is divided into various counties and municipalities and Article VIII, Section 1(f) of the Florida Constitution vests counties with “such power of self-government as is provided by general or special law.”; and,

WHEREAS Chapter 125.01, Florida Statutes specifically authorizes counties to “[a]dopt ordinances and resolutions necessary for the exercise of its powers… [and p]erform any other acts not inconsistent with law, which acts are in the common interest of the people of the county, and exercise all powers and privileges not specifically prohibited by law…”; and,

WHEREAS Chapter 125.01, Florida Statutes further provides that, “[t]he provisions of this section shall be liberally construed in order to effectively carry out the purpose of this section and to secure for the counties the broad exercise of home rule powers authorized by the State Constitution.”; and,

WHEREAS neither the United States Congress nor the Executive Branch of the federal government has the authority to commandeer the states to act (see, e.g., Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Ass’n, 138 S. Ct. 1461 [2018]); and,

WHEREAS the anti-commandeering principle is absolute and categorical. See Printz v. United States, 521 U.S. 898, 935 (1997) (“It matters not whether policymaking is involved, and no case-by-case weighing of the burdens or benefits is necessary; such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty.”); and,

WHEREAS “[w]here Congress exceeds its authority relative to the States, therefore, the departure from the constitutional plan cannot be ratified by the "consent" of state officials” New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144, 182, 112 S. Ct. 2408, 2431 (1992); and,

WHEREAS the Board of County Commissioners acknowledges and affirms that the Sheriff is an independent Constitutional officer and not under the authority of this Board, but the Sheriff is charged with the duty to enforce County Ordinances;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF COLLIER COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:

 

SECTION ONE: Title

This ordinance shall be known and cited as the “Bill of Rights Sanctuary County Ordinance”.

Amendment V No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in a militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself; nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.

Amendment VI In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed; which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

Amendment VII In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of common law.

Amendment VIII Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

Collier County has the right to be free from the commanding hand of the federal government and has the right to refuse to cooperate with federal government officials in response to unconstitutional federal government measures, and to proclaim a Bill of Rights Sanctuary for law-abiding citizens in its County;

THEREFORE, through the enactment of this Ordinance, Collier County, Florida is hereby declared to be a Bill of Rights Sanctuary County.
