Analysis of DeSantis Administration’s Recent Actions on Migrants Resettling in Florida
Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced a series of actions, Sept. 28, aimed at mitigating impacts of migrants seeking entry into the U.S. from the Southern border being resettled in the sunshine state.
Those actions include a lawsuit filed by Moody against top federal immigration officials arguing that the Biden Administration is failing to enforce federal immigration law.
DeSantis has also signed Executive Order 21-223 that, among other things, bars state agencies from assisting in the transportation of immigrants into Florida. We’ll take a closer look at the situation with Fort Myers-based immigration attorney Indera DeMine and FGCU Law Professor and attorney Pamella Seay, whose expertise includes immigration and constitutional law.
