Immigration Key Largo Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' state response to the latest influx of Cuban — and sometimes Haitian — migrant landings in the Florida Keys appears to have begun. Six Florida Highway Patrol troopers responded to a single landing on the ocean side of Key Largo around 7 a.m. Sunday morning. To put that in perspective, that's about the number of FHP troopers that are regularly assigned to patrol all of the more than 120 miles of road in the Keys on a daily basis. One of the troopers said he's part of a group sent down from the mainland to help the U.
