Andrew Mark Miller, Fox News, December 10, 2021

Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is proposing a program to contract with private companies to transport and remove illegal immigrants from the state.

“In yesterday’s budget, I put in $8 million for us to be able to transport people here illegally out of the state of Florida,” DeSantis said in a Friday press conference. {snip}


DeSantis said his office will be proposing a “series of legislative reforms” to address illegal immigration and push back on President Biden’s immigration agenda including a move to bar any contractors who helped the Biden administration transport migrants into and across Florida from future contracts with the state.
