  1. Read the bill, it makes it legal for Florida to go into other states to remove people and take them to another state.
    More millions of our taxes will be wasted when DeSantis’ gives it to his private flight company cronies to do this. If other states wants to use their own money to remove people within their own borders, that’s one thing, DeSantis has no business going into their state to be their house cleaner.

  2. Another bill was sent to governor’s desk and it would budget $10 million for more migrant flights…

    Let’s make it 20 million and include all the homeless and career criminals/thugs our court systems refuse to appropriately punish.
