Gov. Ron DeSantis Directs Illegal Immigration Crackdown In Response To Biden’s ‘Sanctuary Country’ Orders
With our southern border crisis getting worse by the day, it seems very few republicans are willing to stand up against the Biden regime.
We know Gov. Abbot from Texas has organized his own law enforcement teams to investigate and track down illegal aliens, so long as the feds do not interfere with their operations.
Now it seems DeSantis has had enough of the lies and is taking a stand as well.
Breitbart reports that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is demanding President Joe Biden stop releasing criminal illegal aliens and directing state agencies to notify local law enforcement every time a criminal illegal alien is released in their community as a result of Biden’s “sanctuary country” orders.
During a press conference with Angel Families on Thursday, DeSantis announced directives to state agencies in an attempt to ensure that criminal illegal aliens are not released in Florida communities.ADVERTISEMENT – STORY CONTINUES BELOWADVERTISEMENT – STORY CONTINUES BELOW
In February, top officials at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency announced sanctuary country orders that prevent agents from arresting and deporting about 9-in-10 illegal aliens who would otherwise be deported.
It is great to see a few Governor’s stand up against Biden’s open door policies but the truth is, the feds can ignore these state policies.
Not to mention, too few are willing to openly make a stand against the destruction of our southern border policies and the wall that former President Trump had put into place.
DeSantis called Biden’s orders a “reckless policy” and a “disregard for public safety and the rule of law” during the press conference and in a letter to the administration.
“These are convicted felons who are here illegally,” DeSantis said. “If you can’t remove them, then what do you have? Just a complete lawless system and a complete open border?”
In his letter, DeSantis writes that potentially 50 criminal illegal aliens could be released into Florida communities following their prison sentences over the next month thanks to Biden’s orders. Over the next six months, DeSantis writes, potentially 200 criminal illegal aliens could be released.
Well isn’t that interesting, so DeSantis is not actually trying to make the state of Florida a “”Non-illegal Sanctuary State”, he is upset over the illegal aliens that are currently in American prisons and upon release, they are sent all over the U.S. and he doesn’t want them in Florida.
The Biden administration’s abdication of responsibility to enforce America’s immigration laws reflects your disregard for public safety and the rule of law, which our state cannot endorse. [Emphasis added]
As you well know, several criminal aliens were recently released in Florida, at the direction of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who otherwise would have been detained by federal authorities. Dangerous felons were set free into our communities despite federal immigration laws. [Emphasis added]
Over the next thirty days, as many as 50 potential criminal aliens are to complete their Florida prison terms subject to ICE detainers. That number could rise to as many as 200 felons within six months — all confirmed or suspected illegal aliens having been convicted or currently serving in prison. These felons would traditionally be, and are expected to be, transferred to ICE custody. I demand that your administration continue working with our officials to ensure all such felons are detained by ICE until their status is adjudicated, and, if found to be in this country illegally, removed effected.
Someone needs to inform DeSantis that Biden’s policies have tied down ICE and essentially made them very ineffective.
Would it not be in a states best interest to declare that they are not a sanctuary state and refuse any and all illegal aliens?
It is clear that the Biden regime and democrats want to flood our nation with illegal aliens and while politics are being played, its getting worse every single day.
