President Donald Trump spoke to Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., On Saturday, informing him that the federal government will not send immortalized immigrants to his state, a DeSantis spokesman for NBC News told a Sunday statement.
It comes after Florida officials demanded a home security plan plan to release 1,000 "illegal immigrants and asylum seekers" per month into two largely democratic states in the state.
"President Trump said he did not approve such a plan and would not approve it, says Helen Aguirre Ferre, a DeSantis spokesman, to NBC News." Governor DeSantis has never been informed by the federal authorities that such a plan was on place. "
DeSantis, a close ally of Trump and a second Republican, had called the proposal" not acceptable. "
The plan came on fire after the local law enforcement said late last week that customs and border statements informed them that asylum seekers would come to Florida within a few weeks.A CBP official told reporters on Friday that such a move was not imminent and there may have been miscommunication.
The plan arose when Trump talked about sending unoccupied immigrants and asylum seekers to so-called sanctuary cities in retaliation for democrats who block his immigration policy.
On Sunday, the working spouse told For the Home Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan CBS Face the Nation, the agency would not send immigrants to the two Florida counties, overwhelmingly Democratic Broward and Palm Beach Counties.  "No, we are using the southwestern boundary sectors for additional capacity," McAleenan told CBS, adding that officials scrapped the plan on Saturday.
McAleenan said DHS is looking to move people to additional locations, but Texas facilities are capable.
On Saturday, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said, "It seems that Border Patrol has baked its first plans to transport a thousand il legal immigrants to southern Florida."
"Because of everyone's efforts, we can stop what which seemed to be a crisis for our society, "Bradshaw said. "We will continue to monitor this situation and if there are any changes we will let you know. But you must know that we are ready to protect you, keep you safe and adapt to anything that will happen in this community as affects your quality of life. "
