DeSantis Signs Immigration Bill Day Before Title 42 Expires
Many southern states are having to find creative ways to protect themselves after the liberal Biden administration recently allowed Title 42 to expire without having a plan in place to deal with the inevitable surge of migrants.
As usual, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is stepping up to the plate to be the type of leader America needs in these situations.
The Republican has already signed into law an immigration bill that imposes penalties and new restrictions on undocumented immigrants in his state.
DeSantis gave himself an extra $12,000,000 in the state's budget to operate a migrant relocation program.
Last year, DeSantis flew mostly Venezuelan asylum seekers from Texas to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.
The bill has already been approved by the Florida legislature and USA Today is calling it among the toughest steps that any American lawmaker has taken to deter illegal immigrants from arriving.
"We have to stop this nonsense, this is not good for our country," DeSantis said as he signed the bill. "The Biden Border Crisis has wreaked havoc across the United States and has put Americans in danger," he said, adding:
In Florida, we will not stand idly by while the federal government abandons its lawful duties to protect our country. The legislation I signed today gives Florida the most ambitious anti-illegal immigration laws in the country.
