Yeah, Trump's plan is to p*** off Floridians. Yeah, sounds like a Trump plan.

You people love illegals so much...then take them.
Not only that but many in Florida speak Spanish so they'll fit right in.

I live in a small non-sanctuary city near the border and we have 5,000 LEGAL refugee applicants. They didn't sneak in and didn't steal anyone's job picking lettuce. They are fleeing a horrible, dangerous situation where they are powerless to change it at home, in order to try and give their kids a better life. That's what these people are too.

He's a **** poor manager and has allowed this situation to get out of hand and become the crisis he made up. And like the arrogant tool he is, never accepting responsibility for his own actions, he's putting the problem off onto local and state government.

I don't know why Trump is sending them to the purple state of Florida. What is he trying to prove and since when is he afraid of lawsuits? I say send the "migrants" to the sanctuary cities and states and let them deal with them.
Alaska would be my choice for these people.

Sanctuary cities are illegal in Florida.

By this action Trump demands FL cities to become sanctuaries for the illegals.

That’s not a bad idea. Let the Canadians deal with them for a change when they try crossing their border.

And no, Florida does not have sanctuary cities.

The last word is, they they will simply be released into the community since there are no facilities for them.

I think they should build a camp right next to Mar a Lago, and house them there.


Broward and Palm Beach counties bracing for planeloads of immigrants from crowded U.S. camps

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/po...5rm-story.html

The Trump administration is preparing to move hundreds of immigrants from overcrowded camps along the U.S. border to Broward and Palm Beach counties, local officials said Thursday.

Broward Mayor Mark Bogen and Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said they were told to expect two planeloads of immigrants each week, starting in about two weeks. The 270 weekly passengers — about 1,000 each month — would be split, with half going to Palm Beach County and half to Broward.

Local members of Congress, Florida’s two Republican senators and even Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said they didn’t know about it.

“The governor’s office was not informed of this decision,” his spokeswoman said in an email. “Florida counties do not have the resources to accommodate an influx of illegal immigrants.”

The federal government isn’t offering to help, he said.
It would be better if he sends them to Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Let the Dem voters live with the consequences of voting in Dem politicians at the federal level.

Yep. Let the Dems put their money and public resources where their mouths are.
