The number of illegal immigrants in the US has increased significantly over the past couple of years. Ron Desantis and other Republican leaders have started sending them to so-called blue states, such as Joe Biden's homestate of Delaware. However, one group is exempted from this practice.
In response to a question about the increasing number of Cuban immigrants in Florida, Lieutenant Governor Nuez of the state said that the DeSantis administration would send them to Delaware.
Nuez was responding to a question about the increasing number of Cuban immigrants in Florida. She said that the DeSantis administration would send them to Delaware.
During the interview, Nuez was asked about the historic Cuban migration that occurred in South Florida. She said that the governor worked with the legislature to secure the necessary funding to prevent illegal immigrants from staying in the state.
Similar steps were taken by Republicans in Arizona and Texas in the past. Several Democratic candidates for governor immediately criticized Nuez's statement.
Christina Pushaw, a spokesperson for the DeSantis campaign, responded to the criticism by stating that Nuez's statement was not referring to all Cuban immigrants. Instead, it was focused on separating the illegal immigrants from the Cuban migrants.
During the past year, the US Coast Guard has intercepted over 4,000 migrants at sea. Also, there has been a significant increase in the number of Haitian migrants coming to Florida.
It seems that Democrats only care about immigration when it's in their home states. Do you think that Desantis' decision to send the migrants out of Florida was appropriate?
