National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd says he thinks the original plan to release migrants in Florida was politically motivated.

In May, U.S. Customs and Border Protection was planning to send thousands of migrant families to South Florida, but the plan was abandoned after Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and others expressed their disagreement. (RELATED:  Ron Desantis Isn’t Happy About Planned Florida Migrant Dump, and He’s Taking His Case to Trump)

The question is: Why Florida?

Florida isn’t a “sanctuary state” and Gov. DeSantis has been a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

Judd explained:

I will say it and repeat it over and over again — it’s very well documented that we have people in the department that do not support the president, they do not support his agenda and they did not want to see him get elected. They don’t have the same enforcement mind that this president has, they know that they have to undermine him and that’s what is taking place today.
