DeSantis Hammers Biden For ‘Scrambling’ To Respond To Martha’s Vineyard, But Not To These Crises

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed President Joe Biden (D) during remarks Friday over his administration’s response to DeSantis sending 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

“I also was a little bit perplexed when I heard that the president is scrambling to get his Cabinet together to try to address the fact that you have governors who are helping to relocate illegal aliens to sanctuary cities,” DeSantis said. “Now, he didn’t scramble to get his Cabinet together when we had millions of people illegally pouring across the southern border.”

“He didn’t scramble to get his Cabinet together when you had 43, 53 migrants die in some trailer in Texas because they were neglected by the federal government,” DeSantis continued. “You didn’t see him scramble to get his Cabinet together when we had Americans that were victimized by criminal aliens that he let across the border. You didn’t see him scramble to get his Cabinet together when we hit record fentanyl deaths, which, that fentanyl is coming across his open border. It’s only when you have 50 illegal aliens end up in a very wealthy, rich sanctuary enclave that he decides to scramble on this.”

DeSantis said that as governor, he is focused on continuing to “use every tool at our disposal to insulate the state of Florida from the negative ramifications of his reckless border policies.”

“And yes, that involves helping with transport. It involves suing on catch and release, which we have done,” DeSantis continued. “It’s involved making sure that contractors are held accountable if they’re facilitating this into our state. And we have a statewide grand jury that’s looking at different types of practices that may be going on in the state that’s exacerbating the problem.”

“And so, at the end of the day, this is a massive policy failure by the president. This is a massive and intentional policy that is causing huge amount of damage all across the country,” DeSantis added. “And it’s all rooted in a failure to take care that the laws are faithfully executed and to fulfill his oath of office. And so instead of scrambling and worrying about a bunch of rich people, and having 50 — and oh, by the way, they already bused them out. They’re gone. They said, they said, ‘We want everyone; no one’s illegal,’ and they’re gone within 48 hours.”

DeSantis concluded by saying that his decision to send 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard ended up with more corporate journalists covering the immigration crisis under Biden than “have ever gone down to the southern border to look what’s going on.”
