Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) unloaded on Repetition. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), chairman of the home Democrats, for claiming on Tuesday he and Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) were “behaving like human traffickers.”
Jeffries’ remarks came after DeSantis ignited a nationwide media firestorm a week ago as he sent 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Winery, a wealthy liberal enclave from the coast of Massachusetts.
“The behavior of people like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott is radical, reckless, regressive and reprehensible,” Jeffries claimed throughout a press conference. “They should start behaving like governors and prevent behaving like human traffickers. They’re putting politics over individuals probably the most egregious possible way.”
DeSantis fired back throughout a press conference Tuesday mid-day, saying, “When Biden is flying these folks all around the fruited plain in the center of the night time, I did not hear a peep from individuals people.”
“I didn’t hear a peep,” DeSantis ongoing. “I haven’t heard a peep about everyone which have been relayed through Biden you can easily are available in, and they’re going, they’re being mistreated through the cartels, they’re drowning within the Rio Grande. You’d 50 that died in certain shed in Texas. I heard no outrage about any one of that. I haven’t heard outrage about all of the fentanyl that’s encounter the border that’s killing Americans in record figures. I do not hear outrage concerning the criminal aliens which have become through and also have then victimized people – not just in Florida, but all through the nation. I did not hear any outrage about this. The only real factor I hear them getting mad about is that you simply have 50 that finish in Martha’s Winery, they get really upset.”
“And I’m sorry, individuals migrants appeared to be treated horribly by Biden,” DeSantis ongoing. “They were hungry, destitute, they’d no chance whatsoever. Condition of Florida, it had been volunteer, offered transport to sanctuary jurisdictions, because it’s our view that certain, the border ought to be guaranteed. And you want to have Biden reinstitute policies like Stay in Mexico and ensuring people aren’t overwhelming. But lacking that, if you think maybe in open borders, then it’s the sanctuary jurisdictions which should need to bear the brunt from the open borders – so that’s what we’re doing. What happened was, these were these were provided the capability to stay in probably the most posh sanctuary jurisdiction maybe on the planet.”
“And clearly, it’s sad that Martha’s Winery people deported them the following day they might have absorbed this, they chose to not,” DeSantis added. “But what it really shows is, if 50 would be a burden on among the wealthiest places within our country, how about each one of these other communities which have been overrun with hundreds or thousands?”
