Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said he will fight any federal plans that include “dumping” hundreds of migrants in southern Florida from the U.S.-Mexico border — even if that means taking it to President Trump directly.
The federal government has reached capacity for processing the thousands of migrants crossing the border, forcing officials to find other options while they await court processing. DeSantis said shipping migrants to Florida could stress “resources, the schools, the health care, law enforcement, state agencies.”
