Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis responded to an attack on President Biden’s White House on Wednesday, demanding that he and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott “help or deviate” from government efforts to mitigate the coronavirus .
On “The Ingraham Angle,” DeSantis said Biden was spurious in blaming conservative governors who refused to engage in widespread socio-economic restrictions on COVID mitigation, because the president continues to allow crowds of COVID-infected migrants flocking to Texas and in several cases being flown or bused to many states across the country – often without notifying local authorities of their final destination.
DeSantis told host Laura Ingraham that some of the migrants entering Texas have explicitly expressed a desire to travel to Florida, which he says is unacceptable. He added that like other governors, he is not aware of when illegal immigrants are being transported, often for taxpayer cents, to his state:
“They don’t tell us. We are trying to investigate. Sometimes we got some documents and put 2 and 2 together. They arrive by plane… unaccompanied minors and many men of border age, ”he said. “You have law enforcement over there helping Governor Abbott. They said that about the illegal border workers they come into contact with, the majority of them want to end up in Florida. We are working on strategies to be able to deter this. “
DeSantis said America’s problems under Biden transcended the pandemic, but inherently endangered national security.
He added that Biden is off base demanding that Americans follow his edicts as he allows illegal immigrants to flow in from any country they choose via Mexico.
“This is a guy who ran for president saying he would stop the virus. He was not going to stop America or the economy. He would stop the virus. Yet what does he do? He brings people from over 100 different countries across the southern border, ”he said.

“Every variant on this planet – some that we don’t even know about – absolutely enters our country this way. “
“He’s lecturing people on imposing COVID restrictions and lockdowns and not only does nothing to stop the surge in borders, but actually facilitates it on the other hand, he just loses all credibility in what concerns COVID. “
