Since all people in an area are counted to determine voting districts will this mean that these Democratic districts will expand into and take over Republican districts?

 

Maybe they can send them to ‘safe’ Democratic states (eg California) to give them more electoral votes.

The Locals seem SCARED -  THESE ARE UNACCOMPANIED MINORS AND FAMILY UNITS !

This is from the PBS station in South Florida

WLRN 05/16/2019 - Palm Beach, Broward Reject Federal Plan To Ship Migrants From Border: 'This Is Not...

 

Authorities in Broward and Palm Beach counties are rejecting a new plan by Border Patrol that would deliver around 1,000 migrants every month to South Florida, arguing that it would burden the already overstretched resources of the counties and could put communities in danger.

 

"It's not a good plan. We think it's a danger for this community," said Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw in a joint press conference with Palm Beach County Mayor Mack Bernard. 

 

Bradshaw explained that Border Patrol recently informed them of a plan to ship 135 migrants twice a week from El Paso, Texas, and split them between Broward and Palm Beach counties. "We are being told they are family units but we don't know what that means, we don't know the composition [of the groups]," he said.

 

Nobody has told the Governor.

Nobody at the WhiteHouse has verified it with NPR as of yesterday.

However, there is a government contract posted wanting bids for moving around UAC (Unaccompanied Children) and Family units of immigrants - LOTS of Them.

 

Share and Share Alike - How many can your community take?  Step Up America !

What do you want to do with them, we have a urgent humanitarian crisis situation - house them in camps until their court date?  Where?  Where is the UN?  Where is Canada?

We already have lots of CBP agents now listening to credible fear claims - want them to tell them, We are pulling TSP employees to go to the border for more help.  Do you want to send them back to whence they came?

 

THIS IS NOTHING NEW - You might think this next quote is recent but it is not - it was back in 2014 when President Obama was handling the huge influx (but not as many as now) of UAC.

TIME.com 07/08/2014 - Obama in Political Bind Over Unaccompanied Immigrant Minors

. . . . immigrants’ rights advocates argue that the conditions in Central America and the length of the journey justify temporary placement in American homes and schools, even when there are no immediate signs of suspected criminal trafficking or refugee claims. Leslie Holman, the president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, has condemned the White House proposal to expedited removal of Central American children. “That is simply unconscionable,” she said Monday in a statement. “No matter what you call it, rapid deportations without any meaningful hearing for children who are rightly afraid of the violence and turmoil from which they fled is wrong, and contradicts the fundamental values of this nation.”

 

OR even better. . .

Let us be clear. Trump hates Rubio and is not real fond of most of the Republicans. On the other hand, Trump has not been able to handle getting immigrants more than 40 miles from the border before he drops them off in our streets so I would not look for him to be able to put together a plan to FLY these people to Florida in order to start their trek into America's interior.

 

Here in New Mexico, we usually connect to an unofficial sponsor and get them out within 48 hours. Team Trump dropped off a group in an empty lot last weekend because they could not find the gymnasium which was their target. 

 

Just sayin' the man is a moron.

Inmigrants in the State of Florida

Two counties  Broward and Palm Beach, will be receiving per month 500 immigrants to be processed in those counties.

Rubio is having a fit. apparently both communities are reeling over any of this. and they don't even have the facilities to house them.

The counties don'g even have the money to deal with this issue.

Rubio is in trouble, those people will not vote for him in the 2020 elections  Between those counties and the Puerto Ricans, he  is not going to make it
