Florida ‘unauthorized alien’ transport program can fund up to 18 more trips

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Texas to Florida to South Carolina to Massachusetts: That’s the path about 50 migrants took through the United States on two planes, due to spending and transportation efforts by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis last week.

But first, the 48 migrants, children and adults, came to Texas. Most of the migrants reportedly came from Venezuela. The youngest was 3 years old.

Florida’s officials described them as “unauthorized” or “illegal aliens” in a combination of statements and documents related to the transportation effort.
