    DeSantis Stands Up to Biden Administration for Resettling Illegal Immigrants in Flori

    DeSantis Stands Up to Biden Administration for Resettling Illegal Immigrants in Florida

    August 29, 2021 5,524

    Government of Florida


    OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion


    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is standing up to the Biden administration’s attempts to resettle illegal immigrants in the state of Florida.
    This week, DeSantis wrote to the Biden administration demanding that it stop resettling illegal migrants in the state, and to either deport them or send them to a state that supports the “flouting of our immigration laws.” DeSantis has been one of the most vocal opponents to the Biden administration’s immigration reform efforts, describing them as “failed policies.”
    Writing to Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, DeSantis reminded the Biden admin official of a letter he wrote in April “requesting that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) take into custody and ultimately remove all illegal alien felons who have completed their prison sentences in Florida.”
    “I further requested that ICE notify the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) as well as local laws enforcement agencies, of such felons released from ICE custody in Florida,” he continued in the letter. “But despite Florida’s added efforts to transport certain illegal alien felons to ICE facilities and monitor those released at your discretion, we have seen no action by your administration to enforce federal immigration laws or protect Floridians from the continued release of dangerous criminal aliens.”
    Over 212,000 migrants were encountered on the U.S. southern border in July, while around 95,000, mostly single adults, were removed through the Trump-era Title 42 public health protections law, according to Fox News. Biden has not used the policy to remove unaccompanied children or some migrant families under the order, however.

    In addition to Biden’s dismantling of the Migrant Protection Protocols, or the “Remain in Mexico” policy enacted by former president Trump, it means that many migrants continue to be processed and released into the United States, many without notices to appear in court or an ICE office. The Biden administration recently lost a major battle on that front when the Supreme Court declaring that it must reinstate the policy after it was given the order to do so by a federal judge, Conservative Brief reported.
    In the letter, the Florida governor cited Border Patrol statistics showing that 59,691 immigrants were issued either a notice to appear in court or were given an order of recognizance in July, and that as of June, 6,254 unaccompanied children were released to local sponsors in Florida this year to date.


    DeSantis, who has solidly opposed the Biden administration’s immigration policies, which he blames for the migrant crisis at the border, told Mayorkas not to resettle anyone in Florida.
    “I ask that DHS immediately cease any further resettlement of illegal aliens in Florida and that the aliens instead be removed from the United States or resettled in states that support the administration’s continued flouting of our immigration laws,” he said. “Floridians welcome responsible immigration that serves the interests of Florida and the American people, but we cannot abide the lawlessness that your department is aiding and abetting on the southwest border.”
    A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security told Fox News that the agency’s policy remains that single adults and families be removed under Title 42, and that those whom Mexico refuses to take in are transported to an ICE facility and released with either a notice to show up in court or at an ICE office.
    “As part of the process, Border Patrol agents collect biometric and biographic information – fingerprints, photos, phone numbers, and an address in the United States – and run a background check to identify criminals or those who pose a public safety risk,” the spokesperson said, adding that many immigrants are “proactively reaching out to ICE” for processing.
    DeSantis wrote that he is “under no illusion” that the Biden administration intends to comply to his demands, but wants to emphasize that “the states, not the federal government, bear the brunt of this administration’s lawless immigration policies.”
    In the letter, the governor also requested information about the number of illegal aliens, including unaccompanied children, that were arrested at the border whom the Department of Homeland Security resettled in Florida since January. DeSantis wants their details, whether they have been vaccinated, and if any of them failed to appear for court or ICE proceedings.

    If states can get away with sanctuary cities, then states can get away with loading them on buses and dumping them back over the border!

    E-verify housing, school, healthcare, jobs, DMV, voting, welfare, food stamps and DENY them any and all taxpayer funded benefits!

    Ron DeSantis to Biden Administration: Stop Sending Illegal Aliens to Florida

    Ron DeSantis to Biden Administration: Stop Sending Illegal Aliens to Florida

    by PENNY STARR 30 Aug 2021

    Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis delivered a letter to the Biden administration asking the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to protect state residents from “dangerous criminal aliens” being released into communities.

    The letter, addressed to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and delivered last week, rebuked Mayorkas for the “flouting of our immigration laws.”

    “While Floridians are working to ensure that criminal aliens are not released back into our communities, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appears to be hard at work resettling ever larger numbers of illegal aliens who have no lawful status under federal immigration law from the southwest border to Florida,” DeSantis wrote in the letter.

    “I ask that DHS immediately cease any further resettlement of illegal aliens in Florida and that the aliens instead be removed from the United States or resettled in states that support the administration’s continued flouting of our immigration laws,” DeSantis wrote.

    “The Constitution charges the president with the duty to faithfully execute the laws, and with respect to immigration enforcement, the federal government, with the Supreme Court’s blessing, has assumed near exclusive responsibility,” DeSantis wrote. “Unfortunately, President Biden and this administration refuse to fulfill their responsibility to enforce immigration laws enacted by Congress.”

    “It is clear that the crisis at the border is entirely of this administration’s own making,” DeSantis wrote:

    “Floridians welcome responsible immigration that serves the interests of Florida and the American people, but we cannot abide the lawlessness that your department is aiding and abetting on the southwest border,” DeSantis wrote:

    Fox News reported on the growing crisis at the U.S. border with Mexico:

    More than 212,000 migrants were encountered at the border in July. While about 95,000, mostly single adults, were removed via Title 42 public health protections, the Biden administration is not removing unaccompanied children or some migrant families under the Trump-era order.

    The Florida governor cited Border Patrol statistics that 59,691 immigrants were issued either a notice to appear in court or an order of recognizance in July alone, and that as of June, 6,254 unaccompanied children had been released to sponsors in Florida this fiscal year.

    A DHS spokesperson told Fox News in a statement that DHS policy remains that single adults and families are removed under Title 42. Those who Mexico will not take are transported to an ICE facility are released with either a notice to appear or a notice to report at an ICE office.

    “As part of the process, Border Patrol agents collect biometric and biographic information – fingerprints, photos, phone numbers, and an address in the United States – and run a background check to identify criminals or those who pose a public safety risk,” the spokesperson said.

    DeSantis’s letter also asks for more information onaliens who have been sent to Florida, including coronavirus testing and vaccination status.

    DEMOCRATS
    More Democrats Push Back Against Biden’s Plan to End Title 42

    By Rita Li
    April 19, 2022 Updated: April 19, 2022

    A growing number of Democrats are distancing themselves from President Joe Biden’s plans to drop a Trump-era immigration policy in late May.
    The pandemic-era border restrictions, known as Title 42, were implemented during the Trump administration in March 2020 and resulted in the quick deportations of over 1.7 million asylum seekers at the U.S.–Mexico border in the past two years. The Biden administration has decided to terminate the expulsions policy from May 23, given that public health conditions have changed.
    Yet the Biden administration is facing more calls from Democrats for a satisfactory plan to deal with an expected flood of tens of thousands of illegal aliens across the southern border.
    “Unless we have a well-thought-out plan, I think it is something that should be revisited and perhaps delayed,” Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich.), who chairs both the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm, said on April 18.
    “I’m going to defer judgment on that until I give the administration the opportunity to fully articulate what that plan is,” Peters told reporters in the Capitol, after privately raising concerns with administration officials, including Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, The Hill reported.

    His comments come amid a rising pushback against the administration’s decision to lift Title 42, from not only vulnerable Democrats in tough races ahead of this year’s midterm elections but also influential senators.
    GOP lawmakers are leaning on the public health order as a wedge issue during the November midterms, as polls show the topic to be a leading concern for voters and Biden’s handling of immigration his least popular issue.
    A majority of 56 percent of registered voters nationwide oppose the decision to lift the Trump-era border control, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll published earlier this month.
    Republicans will likely attack Biden and Democrats for removing the rule in a bid to portray the party as weak on immigration and border security.
    Peters, chairing the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, is responsible for at least defending or potentially expanding its current split 50–50 in Senate.
    “We should not end Title 42 until we have a detailed plan in place,” Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, a front-runner in the Democratic primary for his state’s open U.S. Senate seat, told Politico. “We still need to fix our broken immigration system as a whole.”

    Sens. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.), Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), and Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), all of whom are on the ballot this November, have stood up against rolling back the Trump-era policy.
    “It’s going to be a crisis on top of a crisis,” Kelly said during his visit to the border last week, doubting the administration’s strategy.
    Kelly is also one of the senators behind a bill that would not allow the administration to end Title 42 while the national state of emergency is still in effect. The division has gone beyond those up for election in November, with Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), and Jon Tester (D-Mont.), who won’t seek reelection until 2024, also signing on.
    Biden ally Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) told CBS News in an April 17 program that he hoped the decision to lift Title 42 “will be reconsidered appropriately.” The senator is part of a group negotiating a $10 billion COVID-19 aid package.
    The pandemic-related deal has been tangled in the fight over Title 42 in the Senate. Republicans are refusing to move the bill, pushing for keeping the health policy in place.
