Ron DeSantis: ‘Today, Florida Fights Back’ Against Biden’s Reckless Immigration Policies:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) at a press conference at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office on Friday announced a series of actions the Sunshine State is taking to address President Biden’s border crisis, making it clear that Florida is fighting back against these “catastrophic” policies.
Biden’s first day in office, DeSantis said, “marked a period where this country” opened up its southern border, and the consequences have been dire.
“What we have seen in the year and a half, during this administration, over three million people illegally crossed the U.S. Mexico border,” he said, noting that many of these illegal immigrants are coming from all over the globe — “Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Africa, [and] the Middle East.”
“If they just get to the southern border, you come in, they’re just going to release you into society. And so, what has that gotten us? It’s gotten us record human trafficking, record sex trafficking, and record drug trafficking,” DeSantis said, pointing directly to the fentanyl crisis and identifying it as the leading cause of death for ages 18-45.
“Where is the fentanyl coming into the country from? Ninety-five percent of its coming from the U.S. Mexico border,” he explained, noting that the Mexican cartels like Biden’s border policies and “are eating our lunch every single day at the border” while “taking advantage of a lot of innocent people and hurting a lot of innocent people as a result.” --->READ MORE HERE
WATCH: DeSantis launches three-pronged plan to shield Florida from border crisis:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a series of measures Friday in response to the crisis at the southern border.
"Illegal aliens are being smuggled across the border in record numbers, which the reckless policies of the Biden administration facilitate," the Republican governor said. "Today, Florida has taken additional action to protect our state from the effects of what is a full-fledged border crisis."
The first action is the formation of a strike force to combat human smuggling, human trafficking, and the slew of illegal weapons being transported though Florida.
Local and state law enforcement agencies will come together to form the force, according to a press release shared with the Washington Examiner.
"In the span of just three days, in Northwest Florida, law enforcement interdicted five illegal aliens from Honduras and two from El Salvador who were arrested and charged with human smuggling or solicitation to commit human smuggling," the release reads. "The strike force also recovered almost four grams of fentanyl, which is enough to kill nearly 2,000 Floridians." --->WATCH and READ MORE HERE
