The controversial law that targets illegal immigrants will also change the way hospitals help undocumented people.

In May, Lakeland Police arrested an undocumented woman accused of leaving her stillborn baby in a dumpster after giving birth at home.

The woman told detectives she did not go to a hospital in fear of getting in trouble.

She is charged with a misdemeanor for transporting human remains.

Police are still investigating.
