DeSANTIS DEFIANT: Florida Gov Vows to Fight Biden's 'Illegal' Migrant Flight Program; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.03.24

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is promising to fight back against President Biden’s illegal migrant flights that bring hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants into the country in the middle of the night.

More than 326,000 migrants have arrived so far via Miami.

“It’s an illegal program. They’re bringing people in who don’t have a right to be in this country from foreign countries,” DeSantis said on Wednesday.

“This is but one of the many examples of how Biden’s egregious and unlawful immigration policies are disproportionately taxing the resources of certain states,” Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said in a statement on Tuesday. “As with Biden’s other unlawful policies, we will continue to fight the CHNV program in court.”

From Fox News:

The policy was first announced for Venezuelans in October 2022, which allowed a limited number to fly or travel directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor in the U.S. already, and passed certain biometric and biographical vetting. The program does not itself facilitate flights, and migrants are responsible for their own travel.

In January 2023, the administration announced that the program was expanding to include Haitians, Nicaraguans and Cubans and that the program would allow up to 30,000 people per month into the U.S. It allows for migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities. By the end of February 2024, more than 386,000 nationals have arrived under the parole program, DHS said.

“The federal government is encouraging illegal immigration and even aiding these individuals to enter the country,” DeSantis communications director Bryan Griffin said. “They’ve cloaked these secretive flights as a lawful parole program.”

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says the flights are an important part of the administration’s strategy.

“It is a key element of our efforts to address the unprecedented level of migration throughout our hemisphere, and other countries around the world see it as a model to tackle the challenge of increased irregular migration that they too are experiencing,” Mayorkas said.
