Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, during a roundtable discussion on Monday in Miami about President Biden’s border crisis, mentioned that Biden’s policies are resulting in serious issues but President Trump’s policies had made the US a better place.
“Biden’s border policies mean more human trafficking, more sex trafficking, and more drug trafficking,” DeSantis said at the discussion.
“If you did the policies that the Trump administration had and the policies that Florida’s supporting, we would have less human trafficking, less sex trafficking, and of course less drug trafficking. And so that would be better for the victims that are coming through with the cartels,” he went on to say, adding that it would “also be better for the victims in our own country” who are “having to deal with drugs in their communities like we’ve never seen.”

“And unfortunately, victims like we saw in Jacksonville, of people who have been trafficked and then have committed crimes in the United States,” DeSantis said, referring to the story of an illegal immigrant who lied about his age. The said man claimed he was 17, but in reality, he was 24. The said man was then indicted for first-degree murder in Jacksonville, Florida.

“And so let’s get this right. It’s important to follow the rule of law. It’s important to make sure we have orderly process and the Constitution’s being followed. It’s important we’re doing everything we can to protect the people of the state of Florida, and we’re going to continue to do that,” the DeSantis promised.
The Florida governor has keenly put the spotlight on Biden’s border policy failures in recent weeks. He even slammed the Biden administration’s efforts to impede the implementation of a rule that the governor released back in December to stop the resettlement of unaccompanied migrant minors in Florida state-licensed facilities.
Back in December, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) spoke to Breitbart News, explaining that the president is keeping a “dirty little secret” from the nation. He said this sacred is that people entering into the US from the border are coming from 160 countries, with suspected terrorists among the crowd.
“The dirty little secret here—the part that scares me the most—is a number of our members went down to the border and we went down very early once the administration changed this behavior and these policies,” McCarthy stated.
“When I was there, I was speaking to a border agent there in El Paso, and he told me they’re seeing more drugs than they’ve ever seen and that they’re catching people on the terrorist watchlist. It’s not just people from Central America. It’s people from 160 different countries,” the representative went on to say, noting that America now has people coming from Yemen who are part of a terror watchlist.
“Why would they be coming to America that way? What do they have planned for America? The fear I have now with what has happened in Afghanistan is people know how to come here and they come from all other countries. This is a real threat to America,” he also said.
