Florida Bill Would Stop Insurance Companies from Deporting Immigrants to Dodge Worker’s Compensation

Legislators and immigration advocates have been pushing for reform since ProPublica and NPR published an expose on the practice last summer. Both outlets documented some 130 cases in which immigrants who’d suffered ‘legitimate workplace injuries’ were flagged to law enforcement by their employers’ insurance agencies.
