Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis took shots at the Biden administration over the relocation of illegal migrants to Florida without notifying state officials.
In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Governor DeSantis mentioned that moving illegal migrants in Florida compromises the law and order in the state.
“I ask that DHS immediately cease any further resettlement of illegal aliens in Florida and that the aliens instead be removed from the United States or resettled in states that support the administration’s continued flouting of our immigration laws,” DeSantis wrote.
“Floridians welcome responsible immigration that serves the interests of Florida and the American people, but we cannot abide the lawlessness that your department is aiding and abetting on the southwest border” he added.
The Governor also attacked the Biden administration for its failed border policy and weak immigration laws that are responsible for the current southern border crises.
“It is beyond reasonable dispute that this administration’s lawless policies are incentivizing mass illegal immigration to our country. The states, not the federal government, bear the brunt of this administration’s lawless immigration policies. The states hold the police powers in our system of government and are responsible for the health, safety, and welfare of our people” he added.
“By releasing illegal aliens, including unaccompanied minors, into the United States on such a massive scale, the federal government is saddling states and local governments with the resulting health, financial, economic, and public safety costs.”
The governor also took to Twitter to call out President Biden for reversing President Trump’s “Remain In Mexico” policy before the SCOTUS decision and further affecting the already worse crises.
“SCOTUS handed down yet another blow to the Biden Administration’s reckless border policies. Reinstating the Remain in Mexico policy that Biden unlawfully rescinded will protect our communities and slow the influx of illegal aliens and illicit drugs at the southern border.”
