Ron DeSantis Kicks Illegal Aliens Out Of Florida

It's about time.

Some governors talk a big game. Some only nip around the edges of the problem. Some make the problem even worse. But Florida Republican Ron DeSantis is actually doing something positive about the illegal alien issue, he’s removing them from his state. Let’s hope other governors notice and follow his lead.

FNC: “Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is proposing a program to contract with private companies to transport and remove illegal immigrants from the state.

Biden’s Department of Homeland Security confirmed that it expects more than 2 million illegal immigrants to cross the border by the end of this year and Biden has faced intense scrutiny from Republicans on his handling of the border.”

“In yesterday’s budget, I put in $8 million for us to be able to transport people here illegally out of the state of Florida,” DeSantis said at a Friday press conference. “It’s somewhat tongue in cheek, but it is true, if you sent them to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard or some of these places, that border would be secure the next day.”

“One of the priorities that we’ve been working on for many months now, and we’ll continue to work with the legislature when they get back is dealing with the fallout from the reckless border policies of the Biden administration,” DeSantis said. “We have a responsibility to stand up for the rule of law,” DeSantis said.

He further detailed the issue. “Any of these contractors [who] are facilitating Biden’s illegal policies by bringing people in the Florida – oftentimes flying in at two o’clock in the morning with no notice to the state – anyone who’s doing that forfeits the ability to have contracts with state and local government in the state of Florida. And they’re going to be responsible for providing restitution to the state of Florida for every single person [whom] they bring.

“Because when they dump somebody, a lot of costs end up being borne by the state in the future, whether that’s education, health care, whether that’s the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, we had somebody brought from Biden [who] murdered somebody in Jacksonville just a few weeks ago. And so we’re very concerned about doing that, and we want to basically say this is not the right decision to be making to be facilitating…basically an illegal human smuggling operation.

“We’re also saying to some of the institutions in Florida, like nonprofits, ‘We’re not going to be giving license to folks who are actively helping Biden do this.’ And so we want people focusing on our own citizens. A lot of people do a lot of great work. We’ve got a lot of people in our state [who] need help and we can’t just have people who are from foreign countries displacing the needs of our own people.

“The federal government’s got a lot of authority on immigration. But if they’re not doing their job, if they’re forfeiting their responsibilities, I just don’t think states should be in a position where we’re helpless and we can’t do anything. So we anticipate conflict, but you can’t just run away from that and say you’re not going to do anything.”

I wish the state of Pennsylvania had the leadership that the Governor of Florida demonstrates in putting forth state policy. Florida should take pride in the management skills of their political leader. Pray that that leadership would be demonstrated in the Quaker state. May the governor of Florida may some day be president of the USA.

I hope Ron has somewhere very much further afield than these you mention Stephen – but I appreciate your line of thought – always good to have a Plan B ;)
Unfortunately “Patriotism” seems to have abandoned the White House at present – but we can also pray for its prompt return in a familiar recognisable guise ;)

We need more politicans like De Santis to stand for the rule of law. Watch, Biden and his cronies will file a court action to thwart the rule of Law. Who is the lawbreaker? Not a question.

Send them to the state that gives them everything they want for free -california. It needs to be enforced that those who are not legally allowed to vote and if a state allows it, then that state loses ALL of its electoral votes at next presidential election. What is good for the goose is good for the gander

All governors of all conservative states should come together and send all illegal immigrants to sanctuary and liberal states.
Time for Article V Convention of States to take power back from the Fed yet?

Love Gov. DeSantis-he is on TOP of things in his State of Florida and works FOR the American Citizens there….Wish WE had him here in Ca. instead of the “Elitist/NitWit-
Gov. Nuisance (Nancy Pelosi’s Nephew-so it runs in the Elitists’ Family) that have turned our once great state into a ‘Sanctuary Cesspool, with Illegal Alien Invasions they view as ‘Future Democrat Voters, as they are Losing the Black, Asian, Hispanic and Women’s Votes that KNOW President Trump, a True Leader, made them promises and HE KEPT THEM..with Employment for them at “HISTORIC NUMBERS”

In Gov. Nuisance’s S.F. it is now turned into ‘San FranFeces, with urine, drugs and feces on the sidewalks, that the Dogs have to watch where THEY STEP!’ Same with L.A. w/Mayor Garcetti turning that Dem Run City into a “CESSPOOL”(like ALL Dem Run Cities, with Rampant Crime, Homeless and Criminals attacking Citizens)
