Ron DeSantis has emerged as one of the only elected officials in America today who is completely unafraid of saying the truth no matter the consequences.
But this time he caught even his most loyal supporters off guard.
Over the course of President Joe Biden’s first two years in office, more illegal aliens than the populations of 31 U.S. States have flooded across the open southern border alone.
And despite the humanitarian catastrophe the Biden border crisis has created, Democrats have shown no signs of making any changes whatsoever any time soon.
But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis isn’t just going to sit idly by and allow President Biden and his Democrat lackeys to completely overrun border communities and states with all of their taxpayer-funded handouts for illegal aliens.
During a recent press conference, Governor DeSantis took aim at the Biden border crisis, and pointed out one major truth few politicians are willing to say out loud.
“Nobody has a right to immigrate to this country,” DeSantis began.
The Governor went on to point out that when a population determines its immigration system, it does so on the basis of what is most beneficial to its nation and people, not the immigrants themselves.
“We determine as Americans what type of immigration system benefits our country, but when you’re doing immigration, it’s not for their benefit as foreigners, it’s for your benefit as Americans,” DeSantis explained.
Governor DeSantis also ripped forms of legal immigration that harm working class Americans, like the H1-B visa program, which many corporations are using to recruit cheaper foreign labor to the U.S. in order to take Americans’ jobs from them.
“So if there’s legal immigration that’s harming Americans, we shouldn’t do that either,” DeSantis added. “For example, some of these H-1B visas, they would fire American tech workers and hire foreigners at lower wages. I don’t agree with that. I think that’s wrong.”
According to Cunchbase, in 2023 alone, American tech companies have fired more than 140,000 American workers, while the same companies also applied for over 430,000 H1-B visa applications for one of the 85,000 visas available in the H1-B lottery.
DeSantis argued that America’s immigration system should be more of a merit-based system, rather than the free-for-all that allows immigrants to bring over everyone who is even marginally related to them once they establish residency in the U.S. that it currently is.
“I think we should have more of a point system [for immigration], like Canada or Australia,” the Governor concluded. “I don’t think we should have chain migration, diversity lottery, any of that, which is a lot of our immigration here.”
There is no reason whatsoever for working class Americans to continuously have an immigration system that literally spits in their faces as it takes away their means for providing for their families.
And Ron DeSantis is one of the few politicians in America actually trying to do something about it.
