Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) suggested he may redirect illegal migrants that are being flown into Florida to Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware.
During a news conference on Wednesday, DeSantis said the state would provide buses to send migrants elsewhere and mentioned Delaware as a destination. This comes as DeSantis has alleged the federal government sent 70 flights carrying illegal migrants to the state over the summer.
“We’re going to get together and figure out what we can do in the immediate term to protect folks in Florida,” said DeSantis.

The Republican governor added if the federal government isn’t going to do something about it, that “the state should be able to come in and provide protections,” adding that’s what he is looking to do. “I will send them to Delaware,” DeSantis stated.
He said the state is considering all legal avenues regarding the move. DeSantis also called out Biden for his double standard after he raised concerns over the recent migrant crisis on the border between Poland and Belarus, but has remained silent on the U.S. border crisis.
