Trump Administration Backs Off Plan to Dump Illegals in Florida. But San Diego Will Welcome 1400 New Migrants Per Month.

The Trump administration is backing off a plan to send 1000 migrants to the sanctuary counties of Broward and Palm Beach, Florida after intense backlash from state lawmakers who claimed that the state’s resources, schools, health care, law enforcement, and state agencies would be overwhelmed. Meanwhile, San Diego is set to receive planes filled with 1,440 migrants per month, or 17,280 annually, with no end in sight.

Following immense backlash from state lawmakers, the Trump administration is backing off a plan to send thousands of migrants to South Florida. 

A Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official speaking on condition of anonymity told NPR late Friday that the agency is not “transporting any family units to Florida at this time,” after initial reports that around 1,000 migrants per month would be flown in and equally split between Broward and Palm Beach counties starting in two weeks

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) said that his office was never notified of the original decision, adding “Florida counties do not have the resources to accommodate an influx of illegal immigrants.”

“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 following a bill signing ceremony. 

In a statement to WPTV noted by Breitbart, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw confirmed that the administration had backed off the plan. 

It appears that Border Patrol has backed off its initial plans to transport a thousand illegal immigrants to South Florida. I want to thank the community for its support. I also want to thank all the elected officials that came to the press conference to support our efforts and thank the governmental officials that stepped forward to make sure that, if in fact this happened, we would have the proper plans in place. Because of everybody’s efforts, we are able to stop what had appeared to be a crisis for our community. –WPTV

Since the gov’t won’t actually stop illegals no matter what, at least send them all to sanctuary areas like CA, WA, OR, NY, etc. Democrats and their Judge Shopping skills will never allow immigration to become all legal, period.
