The Democrats fear Florida Governor Ron DeSantis because he is wildly popular with Republican voters nationwide.
Joe Biden recently went after DeSantis in hopes of reversing his rising poll numbers.
But Ron DeSantis sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security over illegal aliens, turning Joe Biden red with rage.
After Joe Biden failed to stop a surge of new coronavirus infections, his administration attempted to scapegoat Governor Ron DeSantis by claiming that since DeSantis refused to enforce mask mandates in Florida schools or lockdown businesses in the state, that he stood “in the way” of ending the pandemic.
But DeSantis is a fighter.
He responded by blasting Joe Biden for trying to distract from his own failures — like failing to secure the southern border — by attacking DeSantis’ science and data-based approach to handling the coronavirus pandemic.
But that’s not all.
DeSantis also sent a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas demanding the Biden administration immediately stop resettling illegal aliens in Florida.
“While Floridians are working to ensure that criminal aliens are not released back into our communities, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appears to be hard at work resettling ever larger numbers of illegal aliens who have no lawful status under federal immigration law from the southwest border to Florida,” said DeSantis.
“I ask that DHS immediately cease any further resettlement of illegal aliens in Florida and that the aliens instead be removed from the United States or resettled in states that support the administration’s continued flouting of our immigration laws,” DeSantis added.
DeSantis then shredded Joe Biden and his administration for their lawless immigration policies.
“The Constitution charges the president with the duty to faithfully execute the laws, and with respect to immigration enforcement, the federal government, with the Supreme Court’s blessing, has assumed near exclusive responsibility,” DeSantis continued. “Unfortunately, President Biden and this administration refuse to fulfill their responsibility to enforce immigration laws enacted by Congress.”
DeSantis is right, as the numbers of illegal aliens flooding across the southern border are at record-breaking highs and unless things change, it’s expected as many as two million illegal aliens will enter the U.S. in 2021 alone.
But it wouldn’t be this way if not for Joe Biden reversing Trump’s immigration policy his first day in office.
And Ron DeSantis is calling out Joe Biden for throwing open the southern border.
