DeSantis Proposes $8 Million in Budget to Relocate Illegal Immigrants to Delaware, Martha’s Vineyard

DeSantis

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis set $8 million in his 2022–23 budget to transport illegal immigrants out of The Sunshine State.

He proposed the spending in the Freedom First Budget (pdf) to protect against harms resulting from illegal immigration. The spending may include the transportation of unauthorized aliens located within Florida to other states or the District of Columbia.

“In yesterday’s budget, I put in $8 million for us to be able to transport people illegally [in the United States] out of the state of Florida,” he said during a press conference on Friday.

The Republican governor listed Delaware, President Joe Biden’s hometown state, and Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Barack Obama owns a mansion, as potential destinations to relocate the illegal immigrants.

“If you sent [illegal immigrants] to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard or some of these places, that border would be secure the next day,” he said.

The White House and The Obama Foundation didn’t respond immediately to requests for comments from The Epoch Times.

DeSantis also encouraged more counties to participate in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) 287(g) program, under which individuals who have been arrested on criminal charges and are being booked into the county jails are asked about their immigration status.

Other proposed measures to reduce the harms of illegal immigrants include listing convicted illegal aliens on a public website. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (top C) speaks with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott at a border meeting in Del Rio, Texas, on July 18, 2021. (Charlotte Cuthbertson/The Epoch Times)

DeSantis threatened to send illegal immigrants to Delaware back in November. He said his office is looking at legal avenues after his administration alleged that about 70 flights of illegal aliens were sent to Jacksonville, Florida, after being picked up by agents along the U.S.–Mexico border.

“We’re going to get together and figure out what we can do in the immediate term to protect folks in Florida,” DeSantis told reporters, noting that his options are limited because the federal government controls the immigration policies and actions.

But “if they’re not doing that,” DeSantis added, “then clearly the state should be able to come in and provide protection, and so that’s what we’re going to be looking to do.”

“If they’re going to come here, we’ll provide buses,” DeSantis said, before proclaiming, “I will send them to Delaware.”

Don’t forget about Portland, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Atlanta and Chicago. They all deserve a slice of poop pie.

Delaware is Bidens home state that’s why he wants to.send them there. If Sleepy Joe thinks it’s ok to.dump all these people on our already burdened local governmentsthen it should be fine for his local government to get it

As ludicrous as the governor’s proposal sounds, it should open up many peoples eyes on the current state of affairs where the faux Biden admins. is concerned with all of those unannounced middle of the night flights into Florida consisting of illegal immigrants that crossed into Texas & I more than suspect flown directly into FL from the Central American countries from whence they came…It should be noted however, Florida is in fact the preferred destination by many if not most of the illegals entering this nation for ( 2 ) primary reasons imo, climate & costs to live there…I don’t believe CA is the preferred destination for many if not most of these immigrants, i.e. look at the homeless situation, i.e. tent cities in the metro areas of CA & look at the costs of living there…
I consider myself in the genre of the white middle class & NO amount of money could ever persuade me to move to CA…
God bless America.

It’s only fitting that they are sent to Blue States because they’re the states that have caused this to happen

Finish the wall! Definitely a fan of R.D . Great idea too. There’s some Hollywood stars that need some illegal immigrants living next to them also. Hopefully he’ll be the next President.

If the illegals found out they were going to Washington DC, maybe they would stay home. The problem is, anywhere is better than in the corrupt s**thole they are living in!

Maybe it is time to have a Constitutional Amendment that all illegals that are not promptly returned to their point of entry promptly after being apprehended, should be put in states in proportion to their state population density. The higher density populated state, the higher fractions of illegals would be placed there. I think that would go over like a lead balloon to the high population states.

Or maybe not. If they sneak across the border they should be put right back across the border padded on the butt and sent home and if they do it again shoot them.. just saying

No thanks. California is already over-run with illegals. Unlike Newscum and Piglosi, most of us don’t live in a gated community or have personal security. We’ve been inundated with them for years and are sick and tired of it. Maybe we should send them to YOUR city.

Only if they are required to stay in the area (States) they are dropped in to for 20 years or so. If caught out of their area, they and their offspring (including children born in USA who will NOT have citizenship rights until their 18th birthday IF still in the country) go back to their original country and cannot ever return to this country legally.
Hehe! I can picture the citizens of Delaware and Martha’s Vineyard with angry scowls on their faces about that happening … they are such big supporters and are sure to be sidin’ with Joe Hidin’ Biden.

Come on you cant for a second believe he can do this do you? As much as I wish he could he stated the fact that this is a Federal issue and not a State issue. Do you think all the agencies that are paid for whores of Soros/Globalists will let him remove these illegals? The Globalists know full well there is nothing anyone can do to stop them from being placed in the States. Also take into account how many of the illegals are claiming “family” status with already been allowed to stay illegal’s so he wont dare separate the “family” or deport out of State those who have been here regardless if they have worked or collected welfare. Lastly the children cry will be raised and damn if I’m sick of hearing about children of illegals yet not of Real American’s children. Lets face it we are stuck, we are screwed, we are dead, as a country and her people. Oh and forget the “purge” talk and the “open season” talk that’s being thrown around as a last resort if the government doesn’t fix this because you will be either end up dead or in jail while the illegals will be coming and coming and coming.

Sadly, I know alot of well meaning Obiden supporters who will not believe this is happening until the commiecrat Gestapo knocks on their door, orders them out of their house and seizes all their property. The illegals and their kin will take residence of your property because your “priviliege” makes you a criminal. The writing is on the wall being instituted by none other than Obama and his slave Biden, Soros, and the Chicoms.

Why. Spend less money and redirect them back home to their own land. Your taxpayers should be up in arms.

News flash it’s not just happening in Florida. Dean, you better be looking carefully about what is going on in your own backyard. DeSantis just happens to care enough about his state and it’s citizens to try to find a solution for the invasion
