Florida Governor Ron DeSantis filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration Tuesday over its “destructive and illegal” immigration policies; claiming the White House is putting “ideology” over the rights of residents in the Sunshine State.
“I think this is intentional, I think this is ideological,” DeSantis said. “They want a massive illegal migration into this country.”
Gov. @RonDeSantisFL just announced he is SUING Biden over his out-of-control border crisis and is signing an executive order to prohibit the release of illegal criminal migrants into Florida.

“It’s very clear the open borders is the Biden Administration policy. They want a massive, illegal migration into this country,” DeSantis said. “They are farming out people all across communities across the United States, including here in Florida.”
“This is absolutely a crisis. It’s a crisis of the administration’s own making,” DeSantis said. “This continued release of folks on a very mass scale and unprecedented scale will saddle states and local governments with health, financial, economic, and public safety costs.”
“The numbers speak for themselves. The number of encounters at the southwest border has skyrocketed from 78000 in January to over 210,000 in July. That’s a 171% increase. That’s the highest monthly total in more than 20 years and there’s no sign of it slowing down,” he said. “You have another 208,000 in August, and that was again close to another record. Additionally the number of illegal aliens who were issued a notice to appear in court and subsequently released by the border patrol, which means they’re not actually going to appear, in July alone was a staggering 60,607.”

'AMERICA UNCANCELED': DeSantis Tells CPAC Days of 'Failed Republican Establishment' Are Over
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis addressed a crowd of conservative voters at CPAC Friday morning; saying the GOP cannot go back to the “days of the failed Republican establishment.”
“Florida is protecting our people from political censorship and holding Big Tech accountable. We will pass the most ambitious reforms ever proposed for combating political censorship and de-platforming,” said DeSantis.
“In Florida, we are not going to let the terms of the debate be set by oligarchs in Silicon Valley. We’re leading on the issues that matter to conservatives. We don’t spout hollow rhetoric, we take action. We cannot, we will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment,” he added.

60 MINUTES on DeSANTIS HIT-PIECE: ‘Our Story Sunday Night Speaks for Itself’
CBS News and 60 Minutes released a statement Tuesday after being caught red-handed selectively editing a statement from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis; insisting the “story speaks for itself.”
“When Florida State data revealed people of color were vaccinated at a much lower rate than their wealthier neighbors, 60 MINUTES reported the facts surrounding the vaccine’s rollout, which is controlled by the Governor,” reads the statement.

“For over 50 years, the facts reported by 60 MINUTES have often stirred debate and prompted strong reactions. Our story Sunday night speaks for itself,” it concludes.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis torched ’60 Minutes’ and CBS News during a press briefing Tuesday; saying the outfit knowingly lied because they “didn’t want to let go of the narrative.”
“They cut out everything that showed that their narrative was a piece of horse manure,” said DeSantis. “It shows you how dishonest they are. These are smear merchants. That’s why nobody trusts corporate media. They knew what they were doing was a lie. I knew what they were doing was a lie.”
“They know that we know that they’re lying, yet they continue to lie. We’ve offered them the information, and they declined to interview the key people because they didn’t want to let go of the narrative. There’s going to be consequences for that,” he added.
“I know corporate media thinks that they can just run over people. You ain’t running over this Governor. I’m punching back,” concluded the Republican.
