Ron DeSantis just revealed why Florida is handling Joe Biden’s border crisis better than blue states

Mar 4, 2024

Joe Biden’s Presidency has been a disaster on all fronts.

Polls show illegal immigration is the number-one concern right now for Americans.

But Ron DeSantis just revealed why Florida is handling Joe Biden’s border crisis better than blue states.

Illegal Immigration is Destroying Blue Cities

The situation at the border continues to spiral out of control, as record numbers of illegal immigrants are entering the country daily.

Since Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, at least 7.5 million illegal aliens have been released by his administration into the U.S. interior.

This massive influx of illegal immigrants is causing major economic harm in cities like Chicago and New York City.

On Tuesday, DeSantis appeared on CNBC’s Last Call for an interview with host Brian Sullivan.

Sullivan brought up illegal immigration and mentioned how it was causing a massive economic crisis in cities like Chicago and New York City.

Impact of Illegal Immigration on Florida

“What is the economic story of the border crisis in Florida,” he asked DeSantis.

DeSantis reminded Sullivan that he was “the first Governor to send people to Texas back in 2021 to help with the border.”

He said that he was informed by agents that a large percentage of the illegal aliens were hoping to end up in Florida, which led to him taking proactive steps to prevent it.

“We’ve since enacted policies where we have stronger penalties against people that are smuggling into Florida,” he said. “We have E-Verify,” he continued. “So, we have a legal workforce.”

“You can’t just come across the border illegally, and work in Florida, because we have a system in place that is guaranteeing a legal workforce,” he said. “Incidentally, that’s another situation where a lot of folks in the chattering class were saying that that was somehow going to be bad.” 

“For Florida, it’s turned out, it’s been good for Florida,” he added.

He noted that illegal aliens are stealing from people in New York City and traveling to Florida to spend the money.

However, these illegal aliens are not stealing from people in Florida.

DeSantis said this is because they know that they will be locked up behind bars if they steal in Florida, while in New York City they will be released if even apprehended in the first place.

He admitted that his work to protect Florida from Biden’s border crisis was far from over, as more legislation is currently on the table.

DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw shared a clip of the interview in a post on X.

“You can’t come across the border illegally and work in Florida, because we have an E-Verify system to guarantee a legal workforce,” Pushaw wrote above a clip of the interview. “Incidentally, that’s another situation where a lot of folks were saying that E-Verify was somehow going to be bad for Florida—once again, they were wrong.”
