The Orban Option: DeSantis to Bus Illegal Aliens Out-of-State

According to Newsmax, a spokesperson for DeSantis’ office stated that the transportation for migrants who entered the US illegally out of Florida was included in the governor’s recent budget recommendations. Additionally, the state Legislature’s proposed budget includes $12 million for the Florida Department of Transportation to remove illegal immigrants from the state and relocate them.

According to the spokesperson, “…the legislature delivered on this priority, along with many of the governor’s other priorities to protect Floridians from the harmful impacts of the Biden border crisis.”

DeSantis has proposed sending the migrants to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard. However, the governor’s office said that sending them to “…other ‘progressive’ states whose governors endorse blatant violations of federal immigration law” is also an option.

According to the governor’s office, “…it is not the responsibility of Floridians to subsidize aliens to reside in our state unlawfully; we did not consent to Biden’s open-borders agenda,” adding that the state will have access to the funds appropriated for relocating illegal immigrants for the provision when DeSantis signs the new budget before July 1.
