Illegal immigration has exploded under Biden’s administration, reaching nearly unprecedented levels. More than 1.7 million illegal immigrants have been detained in Fiscal Year 2021, according to the CBP. Last month, Biden’s administration released more than 95,000 illegal immigrants in to the US without a court date. Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has had enough of Biden’s reckless immigration policy and allocated $8 Million in his state’s budget to relocate illegal immigrants to Biden’s hometown. The Epoch Times Reports–
“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis set $8 million in his 2022–23 budget to transport illegal immigrants out of The Sunshine State.
He proposed the spending in the Freedom First Budget (pdf) to protect against harms resulting from illegal immigration. The spending may include the transportation of unauthorized aliens located within Florida to other states or the District of Columbia.
“In yesterday’s budget, I put in $8 million for us to be able to transport people illegally [in the United States] out of the state of Florida,” he said during a press conference on Friday.
The Republican governor listed Delaware, President Joe Biden’s hometown state, and Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Barack Obama owns a mansion, as potential destinations to relocate the illegal immigrants.
“If you sent [illegal immigrants] to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard or some of these places, that border would be secure the next day,” he said.”
Florida has 775,000 illegal immigrants in its state, according to the American Immigration Council.
DeSantis has taken a hardline stance against illegal immigration in his state. This week, he said that he refuses to let the needs of illegal immigrants displace the needs of his own state’s citizens.
“A lot of costs end up being borne by the state in the future, whether that’s education, health care, whether that’s the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, we had somebody brought from Biden [who] murdered somebody in Jacksonville just a few weeks ago. And so we’re very concerned about doing that, and we want to basically say this is not the right decision to be making to be facilitating…basically an illegal human smuggling operation. We’re also saying to some of the institutions in Florida, like nonprofits, “We’re not going to be giving license to folks who are actively helping Biden do this.” And so we want people focusing on our own citizens. A lot of people do a lot of great work. We’ve got a lot of people in our state [who] need help and we can’t just have people who are from foreign countries displacing the needs of our own people.” He said on a FOX News interview.
