Kevin McAleenan, about "reports that DHS intends to transport approximately 500 migrants per month from El Paso, Texas to both Broward and Palm Beach Counties for release pending an asylum hearing" on Thursday. Border Patrol will apparently begin sending immigrants in what Sheriff Bradshaw called "catch and release".
In the past week, border authorities have averaged 4,500 apprehensions per day and facilities aren't equipped to care for the influx of children, the official said.
"We have been very cooperative, and then to have this put into certain communities, I think it's just something that we don't want", DeSantis said Friday during a news conference in Sarasota.
County officials in southern Florida spoke out against the idea Thursday, warning that the transfer of a large migrant population to the region could overwhelm local resources.
USA authorities have already been using buses and aircraft to move migrants to cities both on and away from the border, including Phoenix; Albuquerque, New Mexico; San Antonio and Colorado. But they said there are no flights scheduled, and they have made no such decision as of yet. So my only guess, which I think is correct, is that Donald Trump is doing this politically. "It will cost us money, yes, but our soul will remain intact".
He said right now the USA immigration laws "discriminate against genius" and "discriminate against brilliance" because most of the green cards are given to low-skilled people who would make low wages.
BOGEN: You know, in April, I read that Trump was threatening to bring people to sanctuary cities. But Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw reversed course in September, saying Palm Beach "will not be a sanctuary county".
Venezuela says talks between government, 'democratic' opposition underway in Norway
That's left Venezuela in a state of paralysis after years of hyperinflation and shortages of food and medicine. Norway confirmed the talks and expressed hope for a peaceful solution.
Ohio State University doctor sexually abused over 170 male students
The university has said the law firm's work included determining what Ohio State and its leaders knew during Strauss' tenure. Victims of Strauss said he both touched them inappropriately during physical and medical exams, as well as ogled them.
In PM Modi's first presser, Amit Shah holds the fort
He also questioned the EC for ordering re-polling in Andhra Pradesh after 25 days. And on the basis of the people's decision everything will be decided.
Trump and DeSantis have a close relationship.
"I'm sure Texas, Arizona and New Mexico feel the same way", Gaetz added.
As South Florida's sheriff's and mayors warned of a looming immigration crisis manufactured by the federal government, Customs and Border Protection moved Friday to downplay the possibility that planes filled with border-crossing families will begin touching down soon in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez said he hasn't been told any migrants will be taken to Miami-Dade but they're still preparing for an influx. "Not one migrant has come in, according to the White House, which we talked to yesterday". The county expects to receive two planeloads of 135 immigrants each week beginning in roughly two weeks.
"This is a humanitarian crisis". "To bring hundreds of people here every week without providing the necessary resources to house and feed them is inhumane". But the reaction here has run the gamut since it began because people were taken by surprise.
"We, basically, as a state said we are going to work with the federal government constructively", he said. "We are not a border state". Broward is the most Democratic county in Florida, a crucial swing state that could decide whether Trump remains president next year.
The governor's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (The "surge" is still smaller than previous peaks during the early 2000s, plus migrants have a legal right to seek asylum at foreign borders; critics note that in many cases, Central American migrants are fleeing violence and despair caused partly by American foreign-policy decisions.) In addition to trying to build a wall between the States and Mexico, Trump has tried to make it more hard for immigrants to seek legal asylum and just yesterday said in a speech he wants the United States to give green cards only to people with high levels of education or those who pass "patriotism tests". Trump's endorsement propelled DeSantis from underdog status to ultimate victor in last year's governor's race, and DeSantis has met with him several times in the White House, securing promises to increase hurricane aid and federal money for Everglades restoration. Although our Commission has not had the chance to address this issue, in my opinion, the people that we can't find shelter for will become homeless.
State Sen. Joe Gruters, who sponsored a bill banning "sanctuary cities" during the recently completed legislative session and doubles as chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, said he is "not supportive" of the federal government plan. And he says federal authorities didn't indicate why Broward was chosen.
