Broward and Palm Beach counties bracing for planeloads of immigrants from crowded U.S. camps

The Trump administration is preparing to move hundreds of immigrants from overcrowded camps along the U.S. border to Broward and Palm Beach counties, local officials said Thursday.

Broward Mayor Mark Bogen and Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said they were told to expect two planeloads of immigrants each week, starting in about two weeks. The 270 weekly passengers — about 1,000 each month — would be split, with half going to Palm Beach County and half to Broward.

Confusion and disbelief swirled late Thursday around the reports, which were not confirmed or acknowledged by the Trump administration. Local members of Congress, Florida’s two Republican senators and even Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said they didn’t know about it.

“The governor’s office was not informed of this decision,” his spokeswoman said in an email. “Florida counties do not have the resources to accommodate an influx of illegal immigrants.”

In an afternoon news conference organized after the news broke, Sheriff Bradshaw said the Miami border patrol operations chief “came up” to talk to him about it earlier this week.

Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony, a DeSantis appointee, also said he was advised, but not by border patrol. In an email, Tony said the information, which “was also shared with me by my trusted colleague” Bradshaw, was not confirmed by state or federal officials. He said he passed it on to Bogen so Broward could be prepared, and is “currently awaiting a scheduled calendar meeting with my County Commissioners.”

The immigrants are families who crossed the border illegally into El Paso, Texas, and who indicated they were Florida-bound, Bradshaw said. They will be processed at U.S. Customs and Border Protection Offices in Dania Beach and in Riviera Beach, and released into the community, expected to return for hearings, he said.

The pilots should get “lost” and land them in Honduras.

I was hoping they were sanctuary cities.. or at least solid blue cities.
I am still angry that every taxpayer will be paying for this, even if they are in a sanctuary city.

I thought we just get the court decision overturned & could make them wait in Mexico?

But IF they must stay, why are we sending them to a Red state? Why not send them to sanctuary cities in Blue states? SF, LA, Chicago, NYC.....

One more reason Florida is off the list of possible retirement spots.

I think this is all about giving the cities a taste of the real world.

The Republicans are just going to have to live with it.

If the Republicans had acted on behalf of the American people in the first two years these states now getting the illegals would not have to experience this mess.

I don’t understand why they don’t take them to California. Florida is red state for now. The illegals said they wanted to go to Florida, hell no send them to the windy city and endure the winters.

Whoever made this bonehead decision needs to rethink it.
