Ron DeSantis, Republican Governor of Florida is not sitting idly by while undocumented migrants are being flown into his state from the Mexico border.
Broward and Palm Beach County officials were notified by U.S. Border Patrol that they were going to receive more than 100 illegal aliens each week and this would be starting in the next couple of weeks.
DeSantis said he was going to President Trump to stop this unwarranted transfer.
“We cannot accommodate in Florida just dumping unlawful migrants into our state. I think it will tax our resources, the schools, the health care, law enforcement, state agencies,” DeSantis told reporters in Sarasota after a bill signing ceremony.
Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said Thursday he was notified of the plans by the Miami-based office of the U.S. Border Patrol, and that a total of 1,000 people per month would be brought to the two counties from the El Paso, Texas, area. He said immigrant parents and children would be processed in both Florida counties, given a notice to appear in court, and then released into the community.
“If you believe what was leaked and reported, the plan would be to simply put migrants out on the street,” DeSantis said. “This would be potentially just releasing people into our society. With someone just coming across the border, we have no idea what their background is, we don’t know what type of criminal activity they’ve been involved in. We don’t know anything.” [Associated Press]
I don’t even understand why this is happening. The Department of Homeland Security is now openly aiding in the global human trafficking scam on our Southern border and everyone in Washington acts like it’s something that can’t be stopped.
They really think The American People are stupid, don’t they? The next best thing is to dump tens of thousands of them in D.C. near the halls of Congress so our do-nothing politicians can get a good taste of what people in border states have to deal with.
If we can move thousands of illegal aliens across our country by bus and plane, why can’t we also move them by bus and plane to their countries of origin? Just ship them home and give each a ticket verifying that he/she and the kids crossed into the U.S. and asked for asylum and that the alien has a court date on such and such at such and such court to hear the case heard. Why do we have to warehouse them here, especially since the proper and legal way to apply for asylum is from outside the borders of the U.S.?
Send them back to their country right at the point of entry. Do not let them melt into the U.S. while awaiting a court date. We already know that 90% never show up for the court date. Insane for our country to basically turn them loose on the U.S. It would be much more humanitarian. They could be at home. Live their lives, and be together as families, rather than torn apart, living where they have no friends in a foreign country where they don’t speak the language.
DeSantis seems to be doing as well as speaking. Do we finally have someone of integrity? Seems so.
