ORLANDO (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday there will be money in Florida’s budget to reroute illegal immigrants to President Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware if they are bused to Florida.
“We have money in the state budget. I don’t have it yet. I’m going to get it within the next few weeks if Biden is caravanning people into Florida,” DeSantis said.
DeSantis talked with Laura Ingraham at a town hall on Fox News Thursday.
Ingraham discussed a Thursday news report describing lines outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Orlando, Florida. People who traveled from Haiti, Cuba, Venezuela, and Columbia after crossing the southern border waited in line for days to meet with an immigration officer.
DeSantis said those people lined up at the ICE center traveled here on their own instead of in a large group, making it more difficult to track their movements.
“If there is a big movement of them then you can stop them at the interstate and then you can reroute. We want to reroute to Delaware,” he said. “We think that is appropriate to be able to do.”
DeSantis sent state law enforcement officers to help secure the southern border in June of 2021.
“I was being criticized ‘you’re not a border state why are you doing this?’ Because it affects everybody. The fentanyl that is coming across the border is affecting every state that is in this union,” DeSantis said. “That’s why the number one cause of death for 18 to 45 is now fentanyl overdoses.”
Earlier this month, the Texas Governor bused illegal immigrants to the U.S. Capitol after President Biden announced he would end the Title 42 Order. Some of those immigrants had said they would travel from Washington, D.C. to Miami when DeSantis warned them not to come to the Sunshine state.
