    The Trump administration is preparing to move migrants from overcrowded camps along the U.S. border to Broward and Palm Beach counties, local officials said Thursday.

    Broward County Mayor Mark Bogen said law enforcement was told to expect two planeloads of 135 migrants each week, starting in about two weeks. Half the passengers would go to Palm Beach County and half to Broward.


    Bogen called the idea “irresponsible” and said the undocumented immigrants could become homeless in South Florida.

    Broward, Palm Beach counties bracing for planeloads of immigrants from crowded U.S. camps

    | SOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL |

    The Trump administration is preparing to move migrants from overcrowded camps along the U.S. border to Broward and Palm Beach counties.






    The Trump administration is preparing to move hundreds of migrants from overcrowded camps along the U.S. border to Broward and Palm Beach counties, local officials said Thursday.


    Broward Mayor Mark Bogen and Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said they were told to expect about two planeloads of migrants each week, starting in about two weeks. The 270 weekly passengers — about 1,000 each month — would be split, with half going to Palm Beach County and half to Broward.



    ADVERTISING



    “I asked if there was an end date to this and they said no,” Bradshaw said in a news conference Thursday afternoon.


    He said the number of migrants his county wants to accommodate is “zero.” Both counties have significant homeless populations and full shelters.



    “Every day we’re watching our border right here, which is the ocean," Bradshaw said. "We spend a lot of time to make sure people don’t come in to South Florida illegally.”


    The news came as a surprise to local officials, who said they reached out to Florida’s two Republican senators, the Republican governor and other members of the federal delegation and were told no one had been advised by the Trump administration.


    Late Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis still had made no public statement about the situation.


    Bradshaw said the chief of the Miami border patrol office came up and told him earlier this week. Bogen said Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony also was advised by border patrol.


    Sheriff Tony and the Broward Sheriff’s Office did not respond to inquiries Thursday about the possible influx.


    The federal government would offer no money or help to house the people, officials said.



    ADVERTISING



    Bradshaw said he was told the migrants are families who came from El Paso. They do not face charges, and will be released after they’re processed by border patrol, he said. They’ll be given notices to appear at immigration hearings. It was unclear how the federal government would keep track of the people.




    Bogen said nonprofits, businesses and charities would be asked to take people in.


    “We’re going to try,” Bogen said.


    The 270 weekly passengers will be processed at U.S. Customs and Border Protection Offices in the two counties — in Dania Beach and in Riviera Beach.


    Bogen called the idea “irresponsible” and said the undocumented immigrants could become homeless in South Florida.


    If so, Bogen said, "I would suggest that we bring them to the Trump hotels and ask the president to open his heart and home as well.”


    The Trump administration confirmed in mid-April that it was exploring ways to send undocumented migrants to “sanctuary cities” — cities seen as flouting U.S. immigration law to protect people from deportation.


    Broward and Palm Beach counties are both Democratic strongholds. Neither considers itself a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh alleged in a recent radio program that the South Florida counties have sanctuary policies protecting the undocumented.


    In an April 12 Tweet, the president said, “Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only....”


    Leaders fire back at Trump over threat to "dump" immigrants in sanctuary cities »

    The Florida Legislature recently passed a bill banning sanctuary cities. All state agencies and local governments would be required to respond to detainer requests from federal immigration enforcement officials of suspected illegal immigrants in their custody. Gov. DeSantis has said he supports such a ban but has not yet signed the bill.


    Sanctuary policies have been a political lightning rod throughout the country in recent years. Ten states have passed laws favoring them, and nine have adopted laws to restrict them or ban them, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.


    Both Broward and Palm Beach counties stopped honoring immigration detention requests involving inmates after a 2014 court ruling. That ruling said jails would be violating inmates’ civil rights if they held them beyond their release dates without a signed judge’s order.




    Broward seeks sanctuary from "santuary county" label »

    It’s unclear whether that policy changed under newly appointed Sheriff Tony. The sheriff’s office did not respond to two emailed inquiries about the agency’s approach.


    In September, Bradshaw pledged his agency would cooperate with federal immigration agents. “We have not been, are presently not and will not be a sanctuary county as far as law enforcement is concerned as long as I am the sheriff,” Bradshaw said.


    Last year, Broward County commissioners declared the county was “inclusive and welcoming” to all, “irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity or national origin.’’ But wording about Broward being a “refuge’’ was removed from the resolution because of concerns the Trump administration would deem Broward a “sanctuary county’’ for illegal immigrants and withhold federal funds.


    The influx of immigrants could overwhelm a community already grappling with a growing homeless population. Broward officials said homeless shelters are full. The latest homeless census found the numbers on the incline. And this year, the number of homeless children in Broward County’s school system reached 4,479, the highest number ever, according to the county.

    As border crossings surge, the U.S. government has begun moving migrants out of the border camps to be processed elsewhere. The Associated Press reported on Monday that U.S. Customs and Border Protection was taking the rare step of flying migrants to less crowded locations for processing. According to the AP, the flights are managed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at a cost of $6,000 each.


    Busloads of migrants were moved to Denver, Colo., earlier this week, where they were welcomed by local officials. Several churches volunteered to provide shelter, according to the AP.


    The U.S. military, meanwhile, is building six tent cities near the border to house migrants,NBC News reported Wednesday.

    Trump administration to release some migrants caught along southern border into South Florida

    MIAMI – The Trump administration is preparing to release hundreds of asylum-seeking migrants caught along the southern border into Florida's Broward and Palm Beach counties, with no apparent plan to house, feed or care for them, according to local officials who have been briefed on the plans.
    Broward County Mayor Mark Bogen said Thursday that Customs and Border Protection officials told him they would unload about 1,000 migrant families each month, evenly split between the two counties, for an unknown period of time.
    Bogen called the plan "irresponsible" and warned that it would create a "homeless encampment" in his South Florida county.
    "To bring hundreds of people here every week without providing the necessary resources to house and feed them is inhumane," Bogen said.

Parents who gathered at the bus station with their children to join the caravan say they can't support their families with what they can earn in Honduras and are seeking better opportunities.

    Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said Thursday that he received a similar briefing from the Customs and Border Patrol chief in Miami. He said the migrants would be mostly families currently being detained in El Paso, Texas. They would be processed at CBP facilities in Broward and Palm Beach counties, given a date to appear in immigration court and then released into the community.


    Beyond that, Bradshaw said CBP offered no other details or offers of assistance.
    "No accommodations for transportation leaving (the CBP facilities). No accommodations for shelter or a place to live," he said. "Just no real plan on what's going to happen to these…people."
    CBP did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Officials at the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees CBP, did not respond either.


    But the decision to ship migrants to Florida appears to be the latest, and most distant, effort by Border Patrol to release Central American families directly into local communities.
    The agency has complained that its facilities have been overwhelmed by the record number of migrant families crossing the border. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is responsible for interior immigration enforcement and has more detention space available, has also said it's running out of space.

    Thousands of migrants wait at the southern border





    That led Border Patrol agents to begin releasing migrants directly into local communities, at bus stations, community shelters, churches and other places along the border. That's been happening in Tucson since March.
    It remains unclear why the Trump administration selected South Florida as the first location not along the southern border. Trump has discussed wanting to punish so-called "sanctuary cities" that do not fully comply with federal immigration laws by dumping migrants in those communities. But Bradshaw has vehemently denied that Palm Beach County is a "sanctuary" community, as have Broward officials.
    Palm Beach County is also home to Trump's Mar-a-Lago club.
    Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., has been in touch with local sheriffs and has reached out to the White House and the Department of Homeland Security to get more details about the plan, according to spokesman Chris Hartline.
    The transfers are expected to begin within the next two weeks, leading South Florida officials to dust off their mass migration emergency plans originally designed for waves of Cuban and Haitian rafters that occasionally land on their shores. Bradshaw said he never envisioned that plan be used for this kind of situation.
    "A mass migration plan is designed to handle something like the Mariel Boat Lift, where people come here…and then we take them into custody and turn them over to Border Patrol, it's not Border Patrol bringing us their overflow from another state," he said. "That's not what it was designed for."
    Palm Beach County Mayor Mack Bernard said they have discussed setting up tent cities to temporarily house the migrants after they're released from CBP custody. They may also call on local health districts to screen the migrants for any communicable diseases or medical problems.
    Bernard said he may even request an emergency declaration given the costs and resources that may be required to care for the migrants while protecting the welfare of his residents.
    "If we have to address this as our responsibility, we will do everything in our power to feed those individuals and to provide them shelter," Bernard said. "But it will create a financial strain on our already tight budget."
