(PresidentialWire.com)- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is threatening legal action against the Biden administration for quietly transporting seventy planes of illegal aliens to Jacksonville in the middle of the night this past summer.
During a press conference on Wednesday, DeSantis said that his administration is reviewing possible legal recourse “to protect folks in Florida.” While he acknowledged that his options are limited since the federal government controls both immigration and US airspace, DeSantis said if the administration won’t do its job, then Florida should be able to step in and provide protection.
An exasperated DeSantis even suggested that the state will provide the buses to send the illegal aliens dumped in Florida up to Biden’s home state of Delaware.
LOL! @RonDeSantisFL says he will send illegal immigrants to Delaware — Joe Biden’s home state.
“If he’s not gonna support the border being secure, then he should be able to have everyone there.”

And while the governor was being facetious about sending the illegals to Biden’s home state, Christina Pushaw, DeSantis’ press secretary said that sending the illegal aliens out of Florida is not a joke. If the federal government can pay to ship illegals into Florida, Pushaw asked, why can’t Florida pay to ship them elsewhere?
Pushaw told the New York Post that she wouldn’t be surprised if the Florida legislature proposes legislation to address the matter in the next regular session.
DeSantis’ call for legal action against the administration comes on the heels of the discovery that a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Honduras, posing as a 17-year-old boy, was arrested for the October murder of the Jacksonville man who gave him a job.
The victim’s daughter believes the suspect arrived in Jacksonville on one of those late-night flights from the US/Mexico border.
Pushaw told the Post that the administration refuses to share any information with the governor’s office regarding what, if any, vetting process is in place before they scatter these illegals to the wind.
The administration didn’t even give the governor’s office advance notice of the seventy night-time flights into Jacksonville. DeSantis said his office only learned of them through reports from local law enforcement and from people in the federal government “who were effectively leaking this to us so that we have a heads up on it.”
