DeSantis Slams Border Deal, Accuses Biden of Allowing ‘Invasion’

Tallahassee, Florida – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis criticized President Biden’s handling of the proposed border deal, calling it a “farce” and accusing Biden of not taking action to stop “the invasion.” DeSantis, a long-time critic of immigration policy, expressed his frustration as Congress struggles to pass a border deal that would also unlock aid for Ukraine.

DeSantis argued that Biden already has the authority to shut down the border and could declare it a national emergency. He accused the President of lacking the political will to solve the issue, stating that the appropriate number of illegal entries should be zero.

President Biden has promised to shut down the border “when it becomes overwhelmed” if Congress passes a bipartisan border security bill. The bill would grant Biden “a new emergency authority” to shut down the border, which he said he would use the day the bill becomes a law. Despite this, DeSantis continued to criticize Biden, insisting that he has the authority to do so now.

In addition to his criticism of President Biden, DeSantis also accused Senate Republicans of “caving” on efforts to secure a border deal as negotiations continue. He has previously claimed that if the border deal were to pass and if he were president, it would be “dead on arrival.” DeSantis also stated that if elected, he would issue mass deportations of migrants and declare the border an emergency on his first day in office.

DeSantis’ remarks highlight the ongoing debate and division over immigration policy and border security in the United States. As the issue continues to unfold, it remains a key point of contention for politicians and policymakers at both the state and federal levels.
