Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that he will send illegal immigrants who are “dumped” into the Sunshine State to sanctuary states like President Biden’s home state of Delaware, which he represented for more than 35 years in the U.S. Senate.
DeSantis’ remarks came after he signed the No Patient Left Alone Act into law on Wednesday in Naples, Florida, and began discussing the Biden administration’s termination of the Title 42 health policy, which gave the administration the ability to bar people from entering the country during a health crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
“What we’re doing in Florida is saying, ‘We’re not gonna let the recklessness of those policies impact our state,'” DeSantis told those in attendance. “If businesses or contractors are dumping people who are illegal into Florida from southern Texas, you know, we’re gonna go after their ability to do business in Florida.
“If Biden is dumping people, which he has dumped people, they fly them in at two in the morning,” DeSantis continued. “They haven’t done it lately, but they did it many months ago. We now have money where we can reroute them to sanctuary states like Delaware — and we’re gonna do that — to make sure we’re keeping people safe here.”
