The immigration plan that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis unveiled this week was not received well by former President Trump, who noted that DeSantis would “do virtually every one of the things that have been done by me.”
After spending time at the southern border, DeSantis this week publicly unveiled his strategy to resolve the U.S. border problem. DeSantis gave a preview of some of the measures he will take at a rally in Eagle Pass, Texas, which includes cracking down upon sanctuary cities and completing the wall.
More steps would be taken by the governor, according to a statement from DeSantis’ office, including eliminating catch-and-release and reintroducing Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy.
Trump said on Truth Social that DeSanctimonious “showed up in Eagle Pass, at the Texas State Border, with virtually no crowds or excitement, branding him a failed contender, whose sole objective in making this trip was to point out that he would implement all of the things that were carried out by me in establishing the most secure Border, by far, in U.S. history.”
“What a complete waste of time,” he cried.
The governor discussed some of the current problems affecting the nation as a result of Biden’s border crisis at his appearance in Eagle Pass.
“Our own government knows that a sizable number of individuals on its own terrorism watch list have crossed the border, and we are aware that many criminal immigrants have also done so. Therefore, there is a significant issue,” he said, adding that he would “completely deputize every local and state government to be authorized to implement immigration law.”
Additionally, he declared that he would label cartels as either international terrorists or transnational criminal organizations in order to “unleash greater federal power so that they would be in a position to kneecap the cartels.”
DeSantis said that his government will review the present rules of participation along the southern border throughout that event.
“So that you know, I believe you need appropriate norms of interaction. You would resort to force to fend off intruders if they tried to break into your home, right?” DeSantis posed the question while bringing up the use of force.
Trump announced a new immigration commitment last month, threatening to essentially revoke the right of illegal immigrants to citizenship on his “day one” in office.
In the video, Trump stated, “As a component of my strategy for securing the border, on the first day of the beginning of my new term in office, I will be signing an executive order which makes clear to government agencies that heading forward, under the proper interpretation of the law, any future children born to illegal aliens won’t be eligible for automatic U.S. citizenship.”
On his first day in office, Trump promised to issue an executive order ending birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants.
