Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida continues to make moves that have the whole country abuzz.
From his fight to ban vaccine passports to putting a stop to biological males participating in female sports, he continues to prove himself as a conservative hero.
Now it appears DeSantis just can’t be stopped and his latest move left jaws on the floor.
In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, DeSantis announced that Florida would be sending officers to respond to the border crisis in Texas and Arizona.
“We are the first state to commit support for this effort in response to the request that was submitted by the governors of Texas and Arizona, and we’re proud to lead, yet again, on issues that matter to Floridians,” DeSantis stated.
Officers from all over the state, led by the Florida Division of Emergency Management, will head approximately 1,000 miles west to the southern border in hopes of assisting the clearly strained agencies already down there.
At the press conference, Florida Attorney General, Ashley Moody, said of DeSantis, “You have a Governor who is saying we’ll step up to protect Floridians. This is what real leadership looks like.”
Moody went on to say that “leadership is not sending someone down there to beg people not to come,” referring to Kamala Harris’s recent statement telling migrants not to travel to the border.
According to DeSantis, the northern region of Florida has taken a hit from the methamphetamine crisis, and the problem has only grown worse since Biden took office and rescinded Trump’s border policies.
“It’s almost all coming across the southern border, and it’s been accelerating for the last six months, and it’s steepening the problems that we’re having in terms of getting a handle on this in our own communities here in the state of Florida,” the Governor stated.
Republican Governors Doug Ducey of Arizona and Greg Abbott of Texas called on Governors from the other 48 states to help patrol the border or risk seeing the effects of the immigration crisis spill into non-border states.
Biden’s continued denial of the crisis is only serving to make things even worse.
The idea that these states are having to ramp up their own efforts because of a White House decision is inexcusable.
It’s high time Biden stop playing games and put a stop to this madness.
