TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Floridians have the option to purchase a new license plate with the words “Don’t Tread on Me.”

Gov. Ron DeSantis said the license plate will send a “clear message” to people from out of state.

“The free state of Florida has a new license plate for pre-order that benefits the Florida Veterans Foundation and sends a clear message to out-of-state cars, ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ or Florida,” DeSantis said.

Lockdowns in Democratic-run states have caused an influx of people to flee to Florida.

In 2020, the migration from high tax states to low tax states surged during pandemic lockdowns. Below is the breakdown of the migration of taxpayers and aggregate adjusted gross income between states in 2020:

States like California and New York implemented long-lasting business lockdowns during the coronavirus pandemic. New York City carried out vaccine mandates for those entering businesses. Florida briefly locked down businesses during the pandemic, but Gov. Ron DeSantis reversed course and vowed not to implement statewide mask or vaccine mandates.

Earlier this year, DeSantis called San Francisco a “dumpster fire” when he talked about Democrats moving to Florida. 

“They will not draw the connection between their leftists ideology and the destruction that’s all around them. So it is a problem because I do think there is a class of voters who would come to Florida and they would continue to vote the same way,” DeSantis said.
