Florida Governor Ron De Santis called out President Biden’s new, ultra-liberal stance toward immigration during an appearance with Fox News host Judge Jeannie Pirro.
De Santis not only slammed Biden for throwing the borders of the US open to illegal immigrants but also claimed that this decision was ‘intentional and ideological,’ indicating that he believed that Biden’s border policy was part of a larger strategy to destabilize America’s political system.
As The Daily Wire reports:
On Sunday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, widely considered a leading candidate for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, slammed the Biden administration for its policies regarding the southern border of the United States, where a surge of illegal immigrants has flooded the area and left border patrol sounding the alarm over the crisis. DeSantis fired that under former President Trump the border was under control, but that the Biden administration “created this crisis. … I think that this is intentional. I think this is ideological.”
DeSantis also noted that the recently-passed $1.9 COVID relief bill rewarded Democratic-run states that had damaged their economies with strict lockdowns rather than states like Florida, which had acted to make sure their economies stayed afloat, blasting, “It’s effectively a transfer of money from states like Florida and Georgia to states like New York, Illinois, and California. It stinks to high heaven.”
Additionally, DeSantis asserted that his state would not tolerate the kinds of rioting and looting that have plagued other states, pledging, “We’re targeting local governments. If they try to … indulge in these kinds of insane fantasies like defunding law enforcement, the state will take action and defund them as municipalities. … Anybody that wears a uniform, don’t have any doubt: the state of Florida stands with you.”…
DeSantis stated: “Well, it obviously is a disastrous change in policy, Judge. If you look, Donald Trump had obviously the wall, which we all supported, but also safe third-party agreements, as well as ‘Remain in Mexico.’ And guess what happened? The border was under control. So they’ve gone back on those policies, and they’ve created this crisis. But I think that this is intentional. I think this is ideological. I think that they’re getting bit by this, politically now. But I think that this was something that they absolutely anticipated.”
