During the meeting, commissioners heard from members of the public, most of whom voiced opposition to the resolution, which was proposed by Commissioner John Tobia.

“Unfortunately, some jurisdictions have gone out and said we’re not going to follow federal law,” Tobia said. “All this resolution does is put Brevard County’s commitment forward that we’re going to follow federal law.”

About two dozen opponents demonstrated outside the Viera Government Center before the meeting. Those who oppose the resolution gave commissioners an earful.

“The people that it’s going to affect are people (who) look like me, and those people (who) look like me already have been affected,” said Sam Lopez, of United Third Bridge, a civil rights organization.
