Every state should be run like Florida.
Their leaders have figured out how to beat the Left and restore sanity to their state.
Now, Gov. DeSantis has won a major victory on illegal immigration and put the Left on their heels.
Like all states along the southern border, Florida has to deal with illegal immigration, and it has a big impact on their economy.
The Biden administration has clearly shown that they have no intention of dealing with it. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has refused to do anything about the border crisis.
That means it is up to leaders like Gov. Ron DeSantis to step up and fill the void by taking action to protect the residents of his state.
And that’s exactly what he did by passing and signing a new bill to stop illegal immigration in Florida.
According to a report from The Hill, “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed legislation on Friday that mandates law enforcement agencies in the state overseeing county detention facilities work with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to enforce immigration laws.”
“The bill requires that those law enforcement agencies ‘enter into a written agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to participate in the 287(g) program,’ according to a press release from DeSantis’ office.”
“The agreements grant certain local law enforcement officers some immigration enforcement authority, according to the Immigration Legal Resource Center.”
This is a key victory for DeSantis against a Democrat Party that has been pushing hard to open up the borders completely.
For years, Republican politicians have failed to take action as the Democrats have let illegal immigration run wild and refused to enforce existing immigration laws.
Meanwhile the problem has grown worse and worse and has taken a massive toll on border communities in the South.
The article continues, “The bill also makes it illegal for a government entity to contract with a carrier company if that business is ‘willfully providing any service in furtherance of transporting’ to people whom they know are undocumented in the U.S. unless it is for deportation or detention purposes.”
This is a critically important clause in the bill because some companies will knowingly facilitate illegal immigration for the purposes of hiring cheap labor.
But DeSantis is not going to let that happen.
And, as the article states, it is going to go a long way towards defeating the Democrats in the fall elections this year.
“Republicans have been spotlighting the southern border ahead of this fall’s midterm elections, trying to make the case to voters that President Biden and Democrats have failed at immigration enforcement,” the article continues.
That’s why it is so important that Gov. DeSantis finally took this action.
While some other Republican politicians have shown a willingness to fight on illegal immigration issues, making promises to build a wall among other things, DeSantis has shown an ability to fight hard and actually win.
He has put the Left on their heels like no other leader in recent memory.
