DeSantis Doubles Down On Migrant Relocation

After sending roughly 50 migrants last week to liberal Massachusetts enclave Martha's Vineyard , Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis vows to extend the high-stakes political gambit

  • DeSantis has joined fellow GOP Texas Gov. Gov. Greg Abbott in sending migrants having crossed the U.S.-Mexico border to other states to highlight what they consider President Biden’s failed immigration policies.
  • Florida has set aside $12 million to relocate migrants from the state. DeSantis said Friday he would use “every penny” of the money “to protect.
  • Money covers the cost of buses and will cover “likely more” flights, the governor also said.
  • DeSantis has said he is sending the migrants to “sanctuary” jurisdictions, which includes states cities and towns that that have designated themselves  immigrant friendly.
