Ron DeSantis Directing Necessary Attention To America’s Immigration Crisis

It wasn’t too long ago that border states like Arizona and Texas were on their own in absorbing the nation’s illegal immigration crisis.

These states were seeing their resources completely overrun by unlawful crossings. Meanwhile, the Biden administration refused to step in and secure the southern border.

Since migrants have started being dispatched to left-wing cities, the nation is now directing attention towards rampant illegal immigration. Suddenly, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) and other leaders of sanctuary cities are claiming they can’t handle this issue alone.

Earlier this month, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) decision to have migrants relocated to Martha’s Vineyard truly boosted the national focus on open borders.

A Needed Spotlight
When Democrats weren’t bearing the brunt of illegal immigration, it was easy for them to sweep the issue under the rug. This is why Vice President Kamala Harris hasn’t secured the border, despite being named the border czar over a year ago.

Amid growing conversations about the southern border, Democrats are viciously attacking the Florida governor for transporting migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. One of the most extreme cases of this involves falsely accusing DeSantis of human trafficking.

The Florida governor is fighting back against this by explaining that migrants signed consent forms ahead of their trip to Martha’s Vineyard.

DeSantis is likewise bringing attention to America’s immigration crisis by pointing out the hypocrisy of currently outraged Democrats. These folks never batted an eye amid migrants drowning in rivers or being brutalized by actual human traffickers on their way to entering the United States.

By contrast, Republicans have consistently pointed out that Biden is endangering migrants’ lives by leaving the border open, thus incentivizing them to make the journey to seek entry.

The Simple Solution
The Florida governor and other Republicans have pointed out there’s a simple solution if Democrats are angry about migrants arriving in their communities or don’t have the resources to accommodate them.

This solution is securing the southern border, thereby enforcing immigration laws. However, amid the national conversations about the border crisis, Democrats continue to resist the clear answer to this problem.

Instead, the left is running with the idea that the southern border should remain open and only border state communities should be on the hook for dealing with it. As DeSantis and other leaders have proven, those days are long gone.
