Ron DeSantis is filling the national leadership role that Joe Biden has abandoned.
He is leading the way in stopping illegal immigration as Biden twiddles his thumbs.
And now he has signed a game-changing bill that will drive the Left crazy.
Florida is one of the top 5 states in the country for illegal immigration. Because of its location along the southern coastline of the U.S., there is a flood of illegal immigrants every year.
Most U.S. presidents take this threat seriously, and take action to protect the border. Even Democrat presidents like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, while they talked publicly about being “welcoming” to illegal immigrants, quietly deported hundreds of thousands of illegal border-crossers.
But Joe Biden has done nothing to stop the current crisis, which is worse than ever. He is the first true open-borders president, and it has been a disaster for America.
With such a void of leadership at the top, Ron DeSantis has stepped in and done everything he could to stop the flow of illegal immigration.
Of course, he is just the governor of Florida, at least for now. But Florida is one of the biggest states in America and one of the biggest destinations for illegal immigrants.
And according to HotAir.com, “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the Unauthorized Alien Transport Program into law on Wednesday. The new immigration program allows the DeSantis administration to relocate illegal migrants from anywhere in the country to sanctuary cities and states.”
“When the Florida Senate passed the law on Friday, it was sent to DeSantis for final approval. He said he would sign it into law after a review of the bill’s final form. It formally creates the program which unofficially launched last year. It allows government officials to relocate migrants from any state in the country, not just from Florida. DeSantis gave his approval to two planes filled with migrants who were apprehended in Texas to fly to Martha’s Vineyard. At the time, it created a kerfuffle because the money set aside by the Florida Legislature in their last session specified that the funds be used to transport illegal aliens who were in Florida. The migrant flights out of Texas landed in Florida and then took off from there to Martha’s Vineyard.”
DeSantis had this to say after signing the bill: “Florida is using all tools available to protect our citizens from Biden’s open border policies. I am glad to have signed legislation to continue the program of transporting illegal aliens to sanctuary jurisdictions. I thank the legislature for maintaining this valuable tool.”
This program forces the Left to put their money where their mouth is. If a small island like Martha’s Vineyard thinks they can handle hordes of illegal aliens? Let them try.
In the meantime, regular American communities in Florida will be free from the burden of illegal immigration and the strain on the system that comes with it.
Joe Biden might be refusing to lead, but Ron DeSantis is stepping up in his place.
