Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis was caught off guard Thursday when he was notified by U.S. Border Patrol that hundreds of migrants from the Mexican border would be moved into two South Florida counties.
DeSantis, who is close to President Trump, especially since the president’s endorsement helped propel him to the top in the 2018 gubernatorial race, said he would complain to him about the agency’s decision.
"This was not something that came down from the White House. This was something that came out of the agency. Sometimes this stuff happens. It's gonna ultimately be something I'm going to have to talk to the president about," DeSantis said Friday during a press conference noting that he heard the new plans through the media and made a call to the president on Thursday.
In two weeks, Broward and Palm Beach County may start receiving migrants, even after DeSantis recently signed a bill banning sanctuary cities and pledged to help federal immigration authorities control illegal immigrants trickling across the U.S.-Mexico border.
