Earlier this week, the Biden administration routed 70 planes filled with migrants to Jacksonville airport in Florida. One migrant flown in was a Honduran national who allegedly killed a father of four in Florida.
“DeSantis told Tucker Carlson that the Biden flights operate in the wee hours of the night at ‘one or two or three in the morning.’ He added that the flights were ‘unannounced’ and he was given ‘no notice’ and thus no ability to veto the flights,” Fox News reports.
The Governor has a huge problem with this.
“The feds, of course, control the airspace and they’re there on the ground. They take these folks and then they send them to other parts of Florida by bus or other parts of the southeast,” DeSantis said.
“We’re looking at what we can do. I think that they use these private contractors. So what we’re looking at is how can we fight back against the contractors? We can obviously deny them state contracts, which we will do. Can we deny them access to Florida’s market generally? Can we tax them? Can we do things to provide disincentives so they can’t do it? So we’re going to do whatever we can to do it,’ he added.
“But we are going to go after some of these contractors because they are bringing in people that are causing burdens on us and, as we’ve said, tragically caused someone to lose their life.”
