Ron DeSantis signs immigration crackdown ahead of Title 42 end trends now
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a strict immigration bill into law on Wednesday, a day before Title 42 ends and a flood of migrants are expected to cross the Southern border.
DeSantis, who is expected to launch a Republican presidential bid in the coming months, blasted President Joe Biden at the signing ceremony.
'We are bracing for some turbulent times ahead,' he said. 'When you have a president that has turned a blind eye to the border … when you have that, you are likely to see it get a lot worse.'
'You are going to see a massive surge of illegal aliens, you have a duty to ensure that these borders are secure. This is a huge disaster on our hands,' DeSantis noted as he spoke in front of a sign reading 'Biden's Border Crisis.'
'We are bracing for some turbulent times ahead,' Ron DeSantis said. 'When you have a president that has turned a blind eye to the border.'
The law provides $12 million for DeSantis´ migrant relocation initiative, which got national attention last year when the governor ad his state pay to fly 50 mostly Venezuelan immigrants from Texas to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. He said he was highlighting the migrant issue.
Democrats accused him of making political pawns of vulnerable asylum-seekers and trying to score political points with the Republican base.
