If he really meant it, DeSantis would be offering a cash bounty for corpses in his 2A Paradise

DeSantis tells migrants on bus from Texas to DC: ‘Do not come to Florida. Life will not be easy for you'
[www.foxnews.com]
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is warning migrants not to come to his state after a bus full of migrants from Texas who were dropped off at the U.S. Capitol said they plan to head to Miami.

A bus full of 23 migrants from Texas unloaded at the foot of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday morning, as part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's new plan to counter federal immigration policies during an ongoing border crisis.

The migrants told Fox News that they are planning to head down to Miami, Florida, likely by train.

However, DeSantis is taking issue with the fact that the migrants are planning to head to the Sunshine State, with his executive office issuing a clear message: "Do not come."

"To those who have entered the country illegally, fair warning: do not come to Florida. Life will not be easy for you, because we are obligated to uphold the immigration laws of this country, even if our federal government and other states won’t," the Executive Office of the Governor of Florida exclusively told Fox News Digital in a statement.




"Florida is not a sanctuary state, and our social programs are designed to serve the citizens of our state. The governor will protect the sovereignty of the state of Florida," the statement continued.

Sounds like a plea for them to come to Florida so they will depress wages of farm workers and entry level jobs.

They are welcome UNDER the table, they always have been. Just don't expect to enjoy any services or justice.

DeSantis has blocked I-75 and I-95 as well as Amtrack?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Should be clarified: Most of the headlines are dramatically misleading. These visitors may have entered the country unlawfully, but they are here lawfully now.

They have been granted leave to stay by federal agents while their cases are processed, and according to Abbot's press release they have all left Texas voluntarily.

DC out to tell the bus company any bus doing this will be impounded and forfeit. No more charter busses!

In that event, expect to see your local school district buses commandeered by the state. It's a game of oneupsmanship that Abbot wins since no one's is talking about infrastructure failure.
