The proposed measures involve a variety of actions such as increasing penalties for human smuggling, strengthening detention statutes for illegal immigrants, mandating the use of E-Verify, increasing penalties for document falsification and banning local governments from issuing ID cards to individuals who are unlawfully present in the country. Governor DeSantis is resolute in his commitment to preventing the Biden administration from ignoring the perils of their open border policies and has pledged to establish Florida as a state that prioritizes law and order.
The Governor asserted that both federal and state governments must eliminate incentives that lure illegal migrants to the United States, a practice that the Biden administration and some progressive states have been involved in. Additionally, he highlighted that it is the responsibility of the President to protect the country’s borders, and expressed disappointment that President Biden has permitted over five million illegal migrants to enter the country unlawfully during his tenure, describing it as a “regrettable” situation.
Governor DeSantis is firmly opposing the perilous open border policies of the Biden Administration and has emphasized that he will not permit them to go unchecked. His proposal serves as a powerful reminder that safeguarding our borders and upholding our laws is crucial if we are to maintain our status as a secure and protected nation. It is high time that President Biden acknowledges his actions and takes charge of securing our borders and safeguarding American citizens from the perils of illegal immigration.
