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.


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.

Donald Trump's Latest Financial Disclosure Was Just Released

President Donald Trumpís latest personal financial disclosure was just released, showing that Trump, who already owed more money than any other president in history, borrowed millions more in 2018.

According to the disclosure, Trump borrowed between $5 million and $25 million from Professional Bank, a small Florida outfit that specializes in construction and real estate loans. He borrowed the money at 4.5 percent interest through a limited liability company called 1125 South Ocean LLC. The loan was used to finance the purchase of 1125 South Ocean Avenue, a mansion located next door to Trumpís Mar-a-Lago club and owned by the presidentís sister, Maryanne Trump Barry. Last year, Palm Beach-area newspapers reported that Trumpís sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, had purchased Barryís property for $18.5 million. But Trumpís financial disclosure indicates that in fact he controls the company behind the transaction. Though assets and liabilities are reported in ranges on financial disclosure forms, land records show that the value of Trumpís newest loan $11.2 million.

Did anyone else catch this during Robert Gates interview on FTN?

There was a discussion of the age of Presidential candidates. After discussing the challenges of the office for men in their 70's, he remarked that Reagan was that old during his 2nd term, but he was still a pretty good President.

What?!?!?!? Has he forgotten that Reagan was suffering the onset of Alzheimer's during his 2nd term?

Rudy Giuliani Cancels His Trip to Ukraine, Blaming Democrats' 'Spin'

Facing withering attacks accusing him of seeking foreign assistance for President Trumpís re-election campaign, Rudolph W. Giuliani announced on Friday night that he had canceled a trip to Kiev in which he planned to push the incoming Ukrainian government to press ahead with investigations that he hoped would benefit Mr. Trump.

Mr. Giuliani, President Trumpís personal lawyer, explained that he felt like he was being ďset up,Ē and he blamed Democrats for trying to ďspinĒ the trip.

ďThey say I was meddling in the election ó ridiculous ó but thatís their spin,Ē he said.

Mr. Giuliani said on Thursday that he had hoped to meet in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, with the nationís president-elect and urge him to pursue inquiries that could yield new information about two matters of intense interest to Mr. Trump. One is the origin of the special counselís investigation into Russiaís interference in the 2016 election. The other is the involvement of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.ís son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.

Regarding Pompeo"s remarks this morning on FTN.

Twice he responded to questions about apparent discrepancies in some of Trump's statements regarding Russia and election interference by saying (paraphrasing here) that the Presidents tweets had made his position quite clear.

So this is where we seem to be, folks. The POTUS rolls out his foreign policy on Twitter. Apparently no discussion with staff or government agency heads, no official announcements, just a man and his phone. I'm really struggling with this concept.
