Florida Governor Ron DeSantis hosted a press conference today announcing that Florida will be the first state to support Texas and Arizona on their call to secure the southern border. 

Governor DeSantis opened the press conference by exposing the failures of the Biden administration on the southern border. The governor explained how President Biden’s decision to end the Trump administration’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy to instead reinstate catch-and-release is having a negative impact nationwide. 

The governor shared several crimes that had been committed by illegal aliens in Florida over the past two months alone. This includes an 82-year-old woman from Martin County who was raped by an illegal who had been released back onto the streets after being arrested because ICE was not willing to deport him. In a similar situation, an FDLE agent was shot when arresting four illegal aliens because they were caught moving twenty-five pounds of methamphetamine.

Governor DeSantis explained that since President Biden took office Florida has seen a significant increase in illegal drugs, specifically methamphetamines, coming into the state from the southern border. This increase in meth has ravaged Florida’s communities particularly in North and Northwest Florida.

The Florida governor commented, “The bottom line is you are seeing increases in criminal activity, drug trafficking, and human trafficking as a result of this failure. It is both a disaster and an emergency.”

Governor DeSantis went on to announce that Florida is answering the call to support Texas and Arizona in securing the southern border. He listed several sheriff’s offices and state department agencies that have committed to sending aid.

He finished in saying, “We are the first state to commit support for this effort in response to request that was submitted by the Governors of Texas and Arizona and we’re proud to lead yet again on issues that matter to Floridians.”
