As Florida officials brace for immigrant influx, is Trump making good on "sanctuary cities" threat?

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- Officials in South Florida say they are preparing for an influx of immigrants being sent by the federal government as the number of migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border grows rapidly. Broward County Mayor Mark Bogen said Thursday that officials in his community and neighboring Palm Beach County were alerted by the federal government that more than a 100 immigrants would be sent weekly to each of the two counties by plane starting in about two weeks.


As CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy reports, the White House had not officially confirmed the plan as of Friday morning. President Trump did say last month, however, that he was considering placing illegal immigrants in so-called "sanctuary cities" to punish opponents of his immigration policy. It wasn't completely clear whether the news out of the Democratic enclaves in Florida -- which do not consider themselves sanctuary cities -- was the first evidence Mr. Trump was trying to make good on that threat.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said he was notified of the plans by the Miami-based office of the U.S. Border Patrol, and that a total of 1,000 people per month would be brought to the two counties from the El Paso, Texas, area. He said immigrant parents and children would be processed in both Florida counties, given a notice to appear in court and then released into the community.

Snip

Tracy says the migrants involved in this scenario do not face criminal charges and would likely be released into the community awaiting immigration hearings. They are typically processed, released and given court dates in a city where they plan to reside, often with family members. Once the immigrants are released, nonprofit organizations in other cities have been stepping in to provide meals and bus tickets to their destinations.

1. I am very curious as to why he chose a red state? Let

alone the county he spends 1/3 of his time in. There has to be something more to the thinking behind this.

4. US birth rates are at all time low

according to a story in the local paper just yesterday. The report stated that at the current rate, there aren't enough babies being born to replace the generation giving birth to them.

5. Some threat from Trump: sending immigrants where they want to go and where they ...

are accepted and where the economy is good.
