A Dark Day in America – Governor DeSantis signs 2023 Florida Chinese Exclusion Acts prohibiting Chinese nationals from buying land in Florida. If not protected by US Constitution, Chinese US Citizens & Immigrants would be included in the ban. 美國黑暗的一天: 德桑蒂斯州長簽署 2023 年佛羅里達州排華法案，禁止中國公民在佛羅里達州購買土地. 如果不是受美國憲法保護，美國公民的中國人和移民將被列入禁令
Governor DeSantis signed the bill SB 264 that limits land purchases by residents of “countries of concern”. These include China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, and Syria. It prohibits residents and companies from these countries from purchasing or owning agricultural land or any land within 10 miles of a military base or critical infrastructure facility like airports, seaports or waste water treatment plants.
Current owners have to register the property with the state by January 1st. Failure to do so will result in a $1000 per day fine or having the property seized by the state.
The law specifically singles out Chinese nationals and companies since it prohibits them from owning land in the state unless they are a permanent resident or an US citizen protected by US Constitution, otherwise would probably be included.
