DeSantis says he ‘can’t confirm’ reports of migrants being taken to Delaware
So when biden is flying, these people all over the fruited plain in the middle of the night, I didn’t hear *** peep out of those people. Okay, I didn’t hear *** peep. I haven’t heard *** peep about all the people that have been told by biden you can just come in and they’re going, they’re being abused by the cartels, they’re drowning in the Rio Grande. You had 50 that died in some shed in Texas. I heard no outrage about any of that. I haven’t heard outrage about all the fentaNYL that’s come across the border, that’s killing Americans and record numbers. I don’t hear, I don’t hear outrage about the criminal aliens that have gotten through and then victimized people, not only in Florida, but all throughout the country. I don’t hear any outrage about that. The only thing I hear them getting upset about is you have 50 that end up in Martha’s vineyard, then they get really upset. And I’m sorry those migrants were being treated horribly by biden, they were hungry, homeless. They had no no opportunity at all. State of florida. It was volunteer offered transport to Sanctuary jurisdictions because it’s our view that one the border should be secured and we want to have by reinstitute policies like remain in Mexico and making sure that people aren’t overwhelming, but short of that, if you believe in open borders, then that’s the Sanctuary jurisdictions, that should have to bear the brunt of the open borders, so that’s what we’re doing. But what happened was They were they were provided um an ability to be in the most posh sanctuary jurisdiction maybe in the world. And obviously it’s sad that Martha’s vineyard people deported them the next day. They could have absorbed this. They chose not to. But what it shows is if 50 was *** burden on one of the richest places in our country, what about all these other communities that have been overrun with hundreds or thousands? It shows you what now these policies are on the front burner. People need to be talking about Biden can’t defend his policies of open borders. Uh, it’s doing huge damage to our country. It’s costing *** lot of money. It’s costing lives with the drugs that are pouring across. And so the question is, is why are you supporting biden’s policies? Why don’t you step up and tell him you’re failing And let’s do it differently because you know what? He inherited *** border that wasn’t like this. He has created the crisis. But now at least we know nobody can deny that there’s *** crisis. Everybody now knows. And it was only because you had to have the elite who want to have the cost on everybody else and they don’t want to have to shoulder that. That’s the only reason now people are talking about this stop whitewashing. But we also, my wife, Well, I would say read, I would tell them to read florida statutes. We are required to teach slavery the post reconstruction and segregation civil rights. Those are core parts of american history that should be taught. But it should also be taught accurately. For example the 16 19 project is *** CRT version of history. It’s supported by the new york times. They want to teach our kids that the american revolution was fought to protect slavery and that’s for false. We know why the american revolution was fought. They wrote pamphlets, we saw him dump tea into the boston harbor. We saw meet in philadelphia and we have the records of why they revolted against King George the third. And so it was the american revolution that caused people to question slavery. No one had questioned it before. We decided as americans that we are endowed by our creator with unalienable rights and that we are all created equal then that birth abolition movements. So you can’t teach history that’s being used to pursue an ideological agenda. You can’t teach that the foundations of our country were somehow evil. Our our founders pledge their lives fortunes, sacred honor and they put *** marker in the sand. Not everything lived up to it right away. Of course not. But every major movement in our country’s history has gone right back to those core principles. So we want to teach history all history. It’s gotta be accurate though and we are not going to be in *** situation where we’re taking George Washington’s name off schools. Taking down statues of thomas jefferson and that’s what those people who want C. R. T. Wanna do, they want to change history. They want to delegitimize these folks. Um And that’s not what we’re doing. But don’t let anyone tell you, we don’t want those subjects taught because not only do we want it, we have it in statute that they must be taught. Okay, I can’t I cannot confirm that. I can’t, Well we we we do do both. So, so we’ve had interdiction in the panhandle. The problem is is we’re not seeing mass movements of them into florida. So you end up with *** car with maybe two. And if we know that that’s illegal and there’s someone that’s kind of smuggling, then committing crime, then you can do arrest, there have been drug seizures, but that’s not effective enough to stop the mass migration, but it’s just coming in onesie twosies. So we’ve had people on the border for last summer, we’ve done *** lot of And everyone down there will say between *** 3rd and 40% of the people coming across are seeking to end up in Florida. And so we have to go and figure out, Okay, who are those people likely to be and if you can do it at the source and divert to sanctuary jurisdictions, the chance they end up in Florida is much less. And the thing is with the sanctuary that the idea is is because they have more benefits or whatever they do that people will be able to stick. And so that’s why you’re doing it. If I could do it all in florida, I would. But if we just ignore the source, then you’re gonna have people trickling in 5, 10 *** day, 20 *** day. I don’t know. But there’s no way you can possibly track all of that because it’s on such *** small scale. Whereas if, you know, there’s maybe 1000 people down there and *** lot of them say in florida, well, you could say, well, hey, wait *** minute, Here’s *** sanctuary jurisdiction. Be able to provide the transport. So if that’s what you wanna do, you do. And I think that that’s much more effective than than just trying to send one or two out at *** time. Also point out, you know, there’s, we have *** whole infrastructure in place now because of what the legislature did. So it’s not just flights, you know, we have ground, we have other things that we can do. And I’ll tell you this, uh, it’s already made more of an impact than anyone thought it could possibly make. But we’re going to continue to make more of an impact. And I think that at the end of the day, what we’re doing is not the ultimate solution, I think it’s opening people’s eyes to the solution, which is let’s have *** secure border, let’s have remain in Mexico, let’s take the cartels seriously and let’s get with the program here, what they have been doing for *** year and *** half or more than that is basically ignoring that. The problem exists. And I know *** lot of the nash national corporate press doesn’t like to talk about it. But the reality is when you have the vice president saying there’s no border crisis when we’ve had millions of people come across illegally, you’ve got to be kidding me. So let’s get, let’s get going. Let’s get this thing secured. Unfortunately. I don’t think they’re going to do anything in the immediate, it will be *** big issue in the elections. I can tell you that. But hopefully when we get through with that, that we can have some rationality if we have *** new congress, you know, that may be *** big step in the right direction. But this is not an example of, hey, you know, he tried his best and just didn’t work. This was an intentional policy to reverse policies that were effective and you want to talk about, they’ll say like, oh, you know, sending *** bus from texas is *** stunt. All this, the biggest stunt was biden coming in as president and reversing trump’s policies just so he could virtue signal that he was against trump. It didn’t matter that the policy had worked, He had to be anti. And so that’s why he did it. So he did it knowing I think what the impact would be and the impact has been devastating. I really hope more people will start to cover the destruction we’re seeing with the fentaNYL crisis. I mean, we’ve put *** lot of emphasis on it. Uh, when I became governor, Covid obviously made it more difficult. But what’s making it almost impossible is the sheer volume of this stuff that’s been pouring into the United States and I’ll run into mothers and it’s so tragic because these kids are not making like really horrible decisions. Maybe they do one or two things wrong, but the fentaNYL is so deadly that they’ll, oh overdose and some of them will die. So this is *** huge, huge issue and it’s affecting american communities all across the United States. And I also think when you have things like criminal aliens that have been let in, you know Maduro, the reports are Maduro is releasing people from his prisons and sending them up to the southern border. And you know, these these leftist dictators have done that in the past. So you’re bringing in people, they’re coming right across the border and then they’re going into the country that’s not gonna be good for safety in our communities. I mean that’s gonna be *** big problem and we already know that you’ve had people that have been victimized by criminal aliens who’ve gotten across the border. And the reason why those crimes are so difficult to stomach is because that the federal government just done is job, the crime would not have happened and the person would not have been victimized. So this is something that’s really important and these are things that people need to start talking about. And I think also with Martha’s vineyard showed is the Very wealthy community 50, not *** lot. And they said they couldn’t accommodate and let’s just take them at their word and say maybe that’s true. If the wealthiest island, one of the wealthiest in America can’t accommodate 50, then you’re looking at all these other communities and they’re just supposed to accommodate all this more. So I think what it’s shown is when you have the show their numbers of people coming across illegally, even take out the criminal aliens. Just the sheer numbers. You know, that has huge stress on the communities. And I remember last summer going down to the border and it was bad, but it’s gotten *** lot worse this year is the worst year that I think we’ve ever had in modern american history. So, so this is *** big thing. Yes sir. Yeah. Situation in my own life, just, you know about this, what *** great you guys, um, I think have done some stuff with the grandparents and the legislature. So you talk to these folks cause I know that’s an issue we worked on. So you do have the issue of like, you know, visitation custody. All that very important. We also have issues of understanding that in florida, grandparents are really involved *** lot of times with their grandkids, because if the parents live out of state, you know, they’re going to visit their grandparents in florida, no problem. What we’ve been able to do is say that for the purposes of in state tuition that grandparents residency counts for students to get in state tuition. And I think that’s *** really great idea and and it recognizes really the crucial role that so many of our seniors are playing in the lives of our younger generation. And I would also remind you, since I’ve been governor tuition at our state universities has not gone up one cent, we say you can’t raise it, make do with what you got. And so now the average tuition in florida, think it’s like $6200 to go to school university in ST that includes you f which is now number five in the country for public universities, we get them number five in the football rankings. Again, then we’ll be where we need to be. But um florida state is in the top 20. And so you’ve seen these are high quality education that you can get without having to go $100,000 in debt. And so when you talk about biden inflation, you talk about all these things, one of the biggest inflations we’ve had over the last generation has been college tuition, and I’m proud to say we’ve we’ve held the line on that in florida, you need to be able to deliver *** good education for people in ways that they can go through college without being deep into debt. This debt that the in the colleges have really benefited from because they raise tuition, they take the kids have to take out more loans and then if they stay five or six years, that’s even better for the colleges because they they can make more on tuition. And then *** lot of these students are saddled with debt and what ends up happening when they get out. They end up having tough job, tough time finding, you know, really high level employment because the degree was really not worth the money that they put into it. So in florida, we’re going too much different direction. We want affordability combined with high quality and that goes for our in state residents, but also for our in state grandparents. So All right guys,
