Florida officials came in contact with an MS-13 gang member on the U.S. terror watch list during deployment to Texas to assist with Operation Lone Star, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced. Operation Lone Star was started by Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R), but Florida decided to provide support to the operation, where Florida officials have come into contact with roughly 10,000 illegal migrants, including the MS-13 terror watch list member. In May, Abbott announced that Tennessee, Nebraska, Idaho, and Florida deployed resources to Texas as part of this operation.
