DeSantis Signs Law Increasing Penalties For Illegal Border Crossers
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation on Friday aimed at discouraging illegal immigration, as President Biden’s manufactured border invasion continues to rage.
“The federal government has failed in its responsibility to secure our southern border, leaving states to fend for themselves,” DeSantis said during a press conference. “In Florida, we do not tolerate illegal immigration, let alone lawlessness committed by illegal aliens who shouldn’t be here in the first place.”
According to a summary released by DeSantis’ office, Senate Bill 1036 will heighten penalties for crimes committed by illegal aliens who unlawfully reenter the United States after previously being deported. For example, “a third-degree felony (up to 5 years in prison) after deportation will [now] be charged as a second-degree felony (up to 15 years in prison).” The law is set to take effect on Oct. 1, according to Florida’s Voice.
House Bill 1451 prohibits Florida localities from “accepting ID cards issued to illegal aliens by other jurisdictions.” State law already bars counties and municipalities from issuing government IDs to foreign border crossers. The final bill signed by the GOP governor, House Bill 1589, “increases penalties on individuals who operate a vehicle without a driver’s license.”
Both measures will take effect on July 1. --->READ MORE HERE
DeSantis lays out Florida’s plan to block Haitian migrants:
“Given the situation that is happening in Haiti — some brutal reports that are happening — we want to make sure that we are protecting Floridians,” DeSantis said Friday at a news conference.
DeSantis warned that any person who gets on a boat and tries to come to the U.S. through Florida from Haiti will be intercepted and deported back to their country. He has urged those who plan on attempting this to avoid taking these steps, especially since it is a hazardous feat.
“It’s a hazardous journey, it’s not worth doing and we have the resources that are going to continue to keep the people of Florida safe,” he said.
On Wednesday, the governor announced he would be deploying over 250 state officers to secure the Florida border from potential migrants entering from Haiti.
“Given the circumstances in Haiti, I have directed the Division of Emergency Management, the Florida State Guard, and state law enforcement agencies to deploy over 250 additional officers and soldiers and over a dozen air and sea craft to the southern coast of Florida to protect our state,” DeSantis said in a statement.
DeSantis added that “no state has done more to supplement the (under-resourced) U.S. Coast Guard’s interdiction efforts; we cannot have illegal aliens coming to Florida.” --->READ MORE HERE
