Florida Governor DeSantis Sends Law Enforcement Officers To Help With Border Crisis In Texas And Arizona

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 04:38

The border crisis is still completely out of control and the Biden administration is doing nothing about it.

Luckily, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is willing to get involved and lend a hand.

DeSantis is going to send law enforcement officers to help with the situation in Texas and Arizona.

The Washington Examiner reports:

DeSantis sending Florida officers to respond to border crisis in Texas and Arizona

Florida will send its own law enforcement officers to the U.S.-Mexico border to assist federal, state, and local police responding to the border crisis in Arizona and Texas, where the governors have asked every other state to send in reinforcements.

“We are the first state to commit support for this effort in response to the request that was submitted by the governors of Texas and Arizona, and we’re proud to lead, yet again, on issues that matter to Floridians,” Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Wednesday afternoon.

Officers from the Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Holmes County Sheriff’s Office, Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office, and Walton County Sheriff’s Office will head roughly 1,000 miles west to the southern border. The Florida Division of Emergency Management will oversee the deployments.

“You have a governor who is saying we’ll step up to protect Floridians. This is what real leadership looks like.

Leadership is not sending someone down there to beg people not to come,” Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said at the press conference, referring to Vice President Kamala Harris’s previous statements telling migrants not to travel to the border.

DeSantis is just doing the job Joe Biden refuses to do.

We have a crisis at our border – a crisis created by bad policies. With the federal government unable to get the job done, Texas and Arizona have asked for help to secure our border and Florida is answering the call.

— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) June 16, 2021

The border crisis is a created crisis stemming from bad policy choices. Texas and Arizona have asked Florida for help to do what Washington won’t — SECURE OUR BORDER.

— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) June 17, 2021

If Trump doesn’t run in 2024, this guy is easily the top runner for the GOP.

The man who plowed into the gay pride parade in Fort Lauderdale was a member of the gay men's chorus and according to Local 10 — it was a tragic accident. The mayor called it a terrorist attack

Local 10 News reported:

One man was killed and another injured when they were run over by a pickup truck as the Stonewall Pride Parade in Wilton Manors was just getting started Saturday night.

The white pickup truck was lined up with other floats when it accelerated and ran over two men standing by to take part in the parade around 7 p.m. on Wilton Drive near 16th Street, as Local 10 News reporter Christian De La Rosa witnessed.

Police took the man who was driving the truck into custody and were questioning him. He was wearing a Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus t-shirt.

Justin Knight, the chorus’ president, said through a spokesman that chorus members were the ones injured and that the driver was “part of the Chorus family.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tragic accident that occurred when the Stonewall Pride Parade was just getting started,” Knight said in a statement. “Our fellow Chorus members were those injured and the driver was also a part of the Chorus family. To my knowledge, this was not an attack on the LGBTQ community. We anticipate more details to follow and ask for the community’s love and support.”
