Ron DeSantis and Florida have made Joe Biden look like a chump.
Biden is furious over Florida’s massive success.
Now he’s fuming after Ron DeSantis’ ally made this shocking move.
Joe Biden’s regime has plunged the country into its worst border crisis in history.
With the expiration of the Title 42 public health order, the situation is going to get worse.
Title 42 was a public health measure invoked by President Trump that allowed authorities to rapidly boot illegal aliens to protect the country from the pandemic.
After its expiration, potentially millions of illegals are expected to flood into the country.
Because of the lawless Biden regime, Republican-led states have been left to fend for themselves during the border crisis.
Ron DeSantis has taken matters into his own hands trying to protect Florida from this disaster.
Now some allies of DeSantis are trying to give Republican states some help in handling the border crisis.
Florida Congressman Bill Posey filed a bill to allow states to enforce immigration law when the federal government fails.
Posey and Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced the bill called the Immigration and Enforcement Partnership Act of 2022 in response to Title 42 expiring.
“Maintaining operational control over our nation’s borders is critical to our security and our ability to stop human traffickers, drug smugglers and other violent criminals and terrorists who mean to do our communities harm,” Posey remarked.
“When the federal government abdicates its role in protecting our nation’s borders and refuses to enforce immigration laws allowing millions of people to illegally cross into our country, states should have authority to protect their citizens,” he added.
The bill would allow state officials to require federal authorities carry out immigration law.
Federal officials could carry out the law or deputize state law enforcement to do it.
State Attorneys General would determine how federal authorities are violating immigration law.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said, “In less than a year and a half, the Biden administration has obliterated our southwest border and it’s about to get even worse as the president prepares to end Title 42.”
“We can no longer trust this administration to enforce the law. It is time for swift action to protect the American people. That is why Representative Posey and I are taking this matter to Congress and asking the legislative branch to let the states protect our citizens by enforcing public-safety immigration laws when Biden won’t,” she concluded.
Posey and Moody added that illegal immigration was costing Florida $100 million a year and flooding the state with dangerous drugs like fentanyl.
With Biden not interested in enforcing the law, Republican-led states have been forced to step up.
Texas started building its own border wall and brought in law enforcement from other states to help secure its border.
Republican states will have to get creative to try to find solutions to Biden’s border crisis.
