WATCH: DeSantis signs bill banning protests outside of homes, calls abortion protesters “unruly mobs”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed HB1571 into law.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” DeSantis said in a statement. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

As of October 1, 2022 – It will be a second degree misdemeanor to protest/demonstrate outside someone’s home.

Per Insider “The law, which will take effect in October, allows law enforcement to ask protestors to disperse from residential areas. If protestors refuse to leave after a warning, law enforcement can arrest and charge them with a second-degree misdemeanor.”
