Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said it would be fitting for President Joe Biden to receive “an honorary membership in the Mexican drug cartels” during a press conference this week.
“Biden is breaking his own oath of office by allowing large numbers of people to enter the country illegally,” DeSantis said.
“It’s time for the president to be given an honorary membership in the Mexican drug cartels,” said Gov. Ricardo Rossello (R). “With his open-border policies, Biden has done more to help cartels than anybody else.”
DeSantis is running for reelection as governor of Florida. He previously served in the United States House of Representatives before becoming governor.
Because dangerous criminals may enter the country if the border is not adequately secured, it poses a public safety risk.
Many news stories have stated that the United States Customs and Border Protection has apprehended previously convicted, previously deported sex offenders.
On May 9, Border Patrol agents caught a group of individuals that included someone who had been “convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a kid in Austin in 2016 and sentenced to two years imprisonment” according to a press release, which stated that the individual had been “deported in 2018.”
On the same day, US Border Patrol agents arrested a group that included a person who “had previously been convicted of fourth-degree felony sexual assault of a minor in Johnson County, Arkansas, in 2016 and was sentenced to 60 months probation and also deported,” according to CBP.
“Arrests like this emphasize the importance of border security and what it means for American citizens,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens, according to the press release. “Border Patrol agents are on the front line, keeping good people safe from those who wish to do them harm. They continue to be dedicated to removing criminals like these from our nation and your communities, no matter what.”
