Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida and a Republican, has vowed to keep up his campaign to relocate illegal immigrants in opposition to Joe Biden and the federal government’s open border policy.
According to a recent purchase agreement between the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Vertol Systems Company, a local provider of transportation services, the sunshine state can continue to send illegal immigrants to cities with Democratic mayors for at least an additional eight months.
“The proposed Services include, but are not limited to, Project management, aircraft, crew, maintenance logistics, fuel, coordination and planning, route preparation, route services, landing fees, ground handling and logistics, and other Project-related expenses,” the contract reads.
Florida’s state government had already paid Vertol $615,000 to divert 50 passengers from two planes that took off on September 7 and 15 and incited widespread leftist frenzy.
The state has set aside a total of $12 million to send additional undocumented immigrants to liberal towns outside of its borders.
“The contract reveals three tiers of prices: $325,000 per flight for up to eight passengers, $485,000 a flight for up to 25 passengers, and $625,000 a flight for up to 65 passengers,” Townhall Media reports.
This report comes as long-time supporters of an open border in liberal cities like New York and Washington, D.C., ask the federal government for assistance in controlling a large influx of illegal immigrants from Texas and Arizona.
The office of Governor DeSantis warns that millions of illegal immigrants would be invited to enter the country if Joe Biden’s open border policies were celebrated and promoted in the states and cities where the illegal immigrants would be relocated after being removed from their state. The governor points out that since open border democrats are the ones who invite migrants over, Floridians shouldn’t be held accountable for supporting the migrants’ cost of living.
“It is not the responsibility of Floridians to subsidize aliens to reside in our state unlawfully; we did not consent to Biden’s open-borders agenda,” the Governor’s office remarked at the time of the program’s launch.
