Most Republicans in the Florida delegation kept away from the matter on Tuesday but there was one prominent exception.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., is leading a host of legislators--including several from Florida--in calling on the Trump administration to crack down on leaders of the Oretga regime in Nicaragua.
With the help of U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., the chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who is running for governor of Florida, brought out a bill protecting businesses from boycotts targeting Israel. 
Incoming Gov. Ron DeSantis was one of the leading champions of moving the embassy to Jerusalem during his three terms in the House. 
Rubio also pushed back at the BDS movement in an essay published by the New York Times on Tuesday. 
“Instead of specifically addressing the persistent anti-Semitic remarks made by my colleague, House Democrats chose last week to make a mockery of this institution by giving her troubling behavior yet another pass,” said Steube.
Today marks one year since thousands of courageous Nicaraguans took to the streets to protest the oppressive Ortega regime and its arbitrary measures against social security.
The bill adds “sanctions on government, military, or security officials who have undermined democracy in Cambodia or committed related human rights abuses.”
“As chairman, my top priority is to pass bipartisan legislation that will expand economic opportunities for small businesses and entrepreneurs."
With President Donald Trump planning to use executive action to fund building a wall on the southern border to control illegal immigration without congressional approval, members of the U.S. House representing Florida took sides on mostly partisan lines.
