Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is activating the National Guard in an effort to deal with the migration crisis border states are facing.
DeSantis deployed the National Guard to help the government address the rising wave of illegal migrants entering the United States through the Florida Keys.
DeSantis ordered the National Guard, state law enforcement, and other agencies to "provide resources in support of local governments responding to the alarming influx of migrants landing in the Florida Keys, and providing additional support toward efforts to prevent further migrant landings on Florida’s shores."
DeSantis Takes Matters Into His Own Hands
"As the negative impacts of Biden’s lawless immigration policies continue unabated, the burden of the Biden administration’s failure falls on local law enforcement who lack the resources to deal with the crisis," DeSantis said.
"That is why I am activating the National Guard and directing state resources to help alleviate the strain on local resources," DeSantis continued. "When Biden continues to ignore his legal responsibilities, we will step in to support our communities."
"DeSantis earned a degree of notoriety in his efforts to highlight the Biden administration's lax migration policies, notably flying two planeloads of illegal immigrants to the left-wing enclave of Martha's Vineyard, from which authorities quickly removed them," reported JustTheNews.
