Bonita Weighs Possible Charges Against Florida Governor
Immigrants carrying documentation purported to be from the State of Florida
June 15, 2023
California Attorney General Rob Bonta Saturday issued the following announcement regarding migrant arrivals in California:
"Today (Saturday) I met with over a dozen migrants who were brought to Sacramento by private plane, with no prior arrangement or care in place," said Attorney General Bonta. "We are investigating the circumstances by which these individuals were brought to California. We are also evaluating potential criminal or civil action against those who transported or arranged for the transport of these vulnerable immigrants. While this is still under investigation, we can confirm these individuals were in possession of documentation purporting to be from the government of the State of Florida. While we continue to collect evidence, I want to say this very clearly: State-sanctioned kidnapping is not a public policy choice, it is immoral and disgusting. We are a nation built by immigrants and we must condemn the cruelty and hateful rhetoric of those, whether they are state leaders or private parties, who refuse to recognize humanity and who turn their backs on extending dignity and care to fellow human beings. California and the Sacramento community will welcome these individuals with open arms and provide them with the respect, compassion, and care they will need after such a harrowing experience."
