At Least Gov DeSantis Cares About the Border


This is the second time we have published this because it is important.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Tuesday announced actions he’s taking to address President Joe Biden’s border crisis.

Speaking at the Lee County Sheriff’s Office in Fort Myers, DeSantis said the State of Florida is suing the Biden Administration over its “unlawful and destructive catch and release” immigration policies.

The governor also signed Executive Order 21-223, called the “Biden Border Crisis Executive Order” which includes prohibiting Florida state agencies from cooperating with the federal government when it comes to certain immigration issues.

“I’m signing an executive order to prohibit state agencies that report to me, from aiding or abetting in any way what the federal government is doing right now. We’re not going to be a party to this lawlessness. We haven’t, to my knowledge, but we’re letting the marker down, know this is an absolute red line. We’re not going do it,” said DeSantis.

The Biden Border Crisis Executive Order:

  • Prohibits state agencies under Governor’s purview from providing support for the resettlement of illegal aliens to Florida.
  • Directs the Florida Department of Children and Families to determine whether licenses for facilities that house unaccompanied minors should be renewed.
  • Calls on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to review Florida companies’ compliance with E-Verify requirements.
  • Requires state agencies to gather information regarding the scope and costs of illegal immigration in Florida.
  • Directs Florida Department of Law Enforcement to lawfully gather information on the number and identities of illegal aliens being transported from the border to Florida.
  • Encourages state law enforcement to detain any vehicle transporting illegal aliens if there is reasonable suspicion it is being used for human or drug trafficking
  • Requests information from state officials on the number of illegal aliens who are pending criminal prosecution or have been convicted of crimes.
DeSantis appointed Larry Keefe, the former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, to ensure the actions directed by the Executive Order are carried out.

Red States should put a bounty on Illegal Aliens. Once turned in, they need to be put on a bus, guarded by state troupers, and sent to the steps of the Capitol Building.

In Florida, they E-verify so there are no jobs for Illegal Aliens in Florida. If you hire an Illegal in Florida, your business should be confiscated and told at auction and you and your management go to jail.

The States have the power to make the situation intolerable for the Communist Democrat Liberal Losers.
