DeSantis says migrants on the move have exposed Democrat’s ‘virtue signal’ – border is now a ‘prime issue’

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Hannity” that by sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, he revealed that the Democrats’ safe haven jurisdictions are “signalling virtue” and have made immigration and of the border “a priority problem”.

DeSantis said, “You’ve had millions of people since Biden was president illegally crossing the southern border. They freaked out about it? No. You killed migrants in the Rio Grande. You had 50 deaths in Texas in a trailer because they were neglected. Was there a panic about it? No. Criminal aliens have crossed this southern border and victimized Americans, killing some, raping others. Was there any type of outrage about it? No. And then, of course, we know that fentanyl deaths are at an all-time high.

He continued: ‘It wasn’t until 50 people were placed in Martha’s Vineyard, which didn’t say they didn’t want this, they said they wanted this. They said they are a sanctuary jurisdiction. These are people who were fundamentally helpless and then put in a situation where they could have succeeded, but it was all a sign of virtue. Not only did they not welcome them, but they left them the next day with the National Guard. Leave me alone.”

He added: “I think what we have been able to do is show that this border is a disaster. Biden has failed on this point as much or more than any other policy. People talk about it. We want solutions as Americans.

DeSantis concluded, “People need to press the case midway through. The economy will be a big problem. Crime will be a huge problem. This immigration and this border are now a priority issue. This is where the Republicans have the advantage without a doubt.
