CNN anchors momentarily silent after learning why migrant gangs don’t stay in Florida: ‘There you go to jail'

 CNN anchors went silent for a moment on Friday when they learned that some immigrant gangs running criminal operations in New York City have moved to Florida and returned to New York because they are in no danger of going to jail.

"I charged these individuals yesterday with multiple charges, grand theft, robbery, attempted robbery," the CNN analyst said, referring to migrants suspected of attacking police officers.

“This particular crew worked on mopeds and scooters,” he said. "They were doing organized retail theft, they were doing street snatching. iPhones, iPads, clothes, etcetera, etcetera. One of them they're still looking for has 10 charges a day because he was part of a pattern What's going on."

"I'm looking at the dates when his arrests started, which is probably close to when he got here, he's been here a few months."
