DeSantis Proposes $8M to Relocate Illegals to Delaware and Martha’s Vineyard

( )- Back in November, after an illegal alien was arrested for murdering his sponsor, an exasperated Governor Ron DeSantis suggested that Florida might provide the buses to send the illegal aliens dumped in Florida to Biden’s home state of Delaware.

While most people presumed DeSantis was engaging in hyperbole and not making a serious suggestion, it turns out, he may have been serious.

In his proposed 2022-23 budget, Governor DeSantis has included $8 million to fund a new program to transport “unauthorized aliens” out of Florida.

This $8 million fund is the governor’s latest move in his ongoing fight to hold the Biden administration accountable for the border crisis it created. In addition to filing suit against the Biden administration, DeSantis recently issued an executive order allowing Florida law enforcement agencies to collect information on the illegal aliens the administration has placed in Florida.

In announcing the $8 million fund last week, DeSantis listed Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware as well as Martha’s Vineyard as two possible locations to send these illegals. While he admitted it was “somewhat tongue-in-cheek,” DeSantis added that if illegal aliens were being transported to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard, the border would get secured the next day.

DeSantis also encouraged more Florida counties to participate in ICE’s 287(g) program, under which individuals booked into county jails can be asked about their immigration status.

He also proposed a measure aimed at reducing the harm from waves of illegals, including creating a website listing convicted illegal aliens.

Ron DeSantis was one of the first governors to speak out against the Biden administration’s secret, late-night flights relocating illegal aliens from Texas to interior states. After the New York Post initially broke the story of these secret flights, a 24-year-old illegal from Honduras, who was posing as a 17-year-old unaccompanied minor was arrested for the October murder of a Jacksonville man who gave him a job.

The Honduran illegal is believed to have been on one of those late-night flights from the US/Mexico border.

DeSantis blasted the Department of Homeland Security for giving the Governor’s office no advance notice that these illegals were being transported to Jacksonville. He said at the time that his office only learned of these flights through reports from local law enforcement and from people in the federal government “who were effectively leaking this to us so that we have a heads up on it.”
