Federal official says there's 'no immediate plan' to send migrants to South Florida

A senior official with U.S. Customs and Border Protection told reporters that sending thousands of migrants to South Florida was only part of a “contingency plan,” according to the Sun Sentinel. The statement came after officials in two South Florida counties, Broward and Palm Beach, raised the concern about having thousands of undocumented immigrants flown there from the U.S. Mexico Border. The Sun Sentinel reported a federal official addressed that concern by saying there was no immediate plan to send anyone to those counties.
