Feb 29, 2024

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis does not back down from a challenge.

He is stepping up to the fill void created by the federal government’s failure to do its job. 

And Ron DeSantis made one bold move to secure the border that left Joe Biden seething with rage.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been sending state resources and personnel to Texas to help with border security since the border crisis that President Joe Biden created in 2021.

He announced at a press conference that he was deploying 76 Florida Highway Patrol officers and 50 Florida National Guard troops to Texas to assist with securing the southern border.

More than 1,000 personnel from Florida law enforcement, state agencies, and the National Guard have rotated to Texas as part of the state’s border security efforts since last May. 

Ron DeSantis slams Joe Biden for the border crisis

The Florida governor said that his state was stepping up to do the job the federal government refused to do during the announcement.

“This is part of a years-long effort for us to help do what the federal government has refused to do, which is to actually defend this country’s borders,” DeSantis said. “You’ve seen numbers that have been astronomical over these last three years. I know that what’s been happening in Texas has been effective. You’ve seen the numbers go down, and that’s really because you have Texas putting forth huge effort, and then all these other states coming by to help. So, so we want to be a part of that.”

DeSantis added that all 50 states are feeling the effects of the border crisis now.

DeSantis warns of nationals from hostile countries crossing the border

“I think the chances are that there’s some bad intentions there for some of these people,” DeSantis warned. “And it’s a huge, huge problem, especially when you look at all the problem countries in this world have had people come through the southern border.”

DeSantis said that there is an alarming number of Chinese nationals and military-aged men from hostile nations in the Middle East showing up at the southern border.

He also blamed the Biden administration for fueling the border crisis by using taxpayer money to fund non-governmental organizations (NGOs) aiding illegal aliens.

“The federal government is funding that, a hundred percent they are, and it’s wrong,” DeSantis explained. “These NGOs make a fortune because of illegal immigration. They bring people in; the federal government gives them money. What we did in Florida is we took action regarding their ability to interact with the state. The problem is they have this money coming from the feds. But I think you look at it, it’s not just like, ‘Oh, someone shows up and these [NGOs] are offering charity.’ They are intricately involved in orchestrating movements of people from foreign countries into this country illegally.”

Joe Biden claims that he wants to secure the border but is quietly funding the groups creating the crisis.
