EAGLE PASS, Texas – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a prominent Republican presidential candidate, recently unveiled a comprehensive border security plan aimed at safeguarding our nation from illegal immigration and the influence of drug cartels.
Speaking at a high-profile event in Texas, DeSantis captured the attention of passionate Republican voters who share his concerns about the border crisis and the need for decisive action.
DeSantis left no room for doubt about his commitment to action, stating emphatically, “On Jan. 20, 2025, we will embark on a mission to put an end to the invasion at our southern border, eradicate the drug cartels that are poisoning our citizens, construct the border wall, and restore the sovereignty of our great nation.
No more empty promises or catchy slogans. It’s time for unwavering action, no excuses. We will deliver the results that our country deserves.”
Addressing the humiliating reality of our loss of control over our own territory, DeSantis passionately criticized the Biden administration for its neglect and intentional failures at the border. He condemned the Mexican drug cartels’ current control over our border as a disgrace and a horrific situation that demands immediate rectification.
DeSantis vowed that if elected President, he would declare a national emergency on his first day in office, making the border crisis a top priority. His comprehensive plan includes the construction of the border wall, holding drug cartels accountable for their actions, and collaborating with states to enforce the rule of law.
Emphasizing the importance of restoring the rule of law in our country, DeSantis remarked, “If the federal government fails to fulfill its responsibilities, the states should be empowered to take action and repatriate individuals.”
Illegal immigration and border security have long been major concerns for Republican voters, and DeSantis has made it clear that he will address these issues head-on. The surge in border crossings under the Biden administration has only heightened these concerns, making the need for action even more urgent.
During his tenure as Florida Governor, DeSantis has already implemented significant measures to tackle illegal immigration. He signed a robust anti-illegal immigration bill that mandates the use of E-Verify by employers, increases penalties for human and drug smuggling, and prohibits local jurisdictions from issuing IDs to illegal immigrants.
Furthermore, DeSantis has demonstrated his innovative approach to addressing the issue by implementing a program to relocate illegal immigrants to states such as Massachusetts and California. The recent $24 million funding boost for this program further highlights his commitment to finding practical solutions.
DeSantis has also responded to requests for assistance from other states by deploying law enforcement personnel, including National Guard troops, as well as utilizing drones and other resources at the border.
The event in Eagle Pass, Texas, where DeSantis presented his policy proposals, resonated strongly with Republican voters. This area has experienced a high volume of migrant traffic, underscoring the urgency of the border crisis. In May alone, there were over 204,000 encounters at the border, demonstrating the scale of the challenge we face.
DeSantis outlined specific measures in his plan, including ending catch-and-release policies. Under his administration, individuals crossing the border illegally will be detained until their hearing date. He also pledged to reimpose the Remain in Mexico policy, ensuring that asylum seekers at port entries will not enter the United States until their claims are processed.
Although DeSantis currently trails former President Donald Trump in the GOP presidential nomination polls, his strong commitment to border security and addressing this critical issue has garnered significant support. DeSantis aims to accomplish what leaders from both parties have failed to achieve for decades – taking decisive action to stop the invasion and protect our nation.
In his own resolute words, DeSantis proclaimed, “As president, I will declare a national emergency on day one and will not rest until we build the wall, shut down illegal entry, and win the war against drug cartels. No excuses. We will get it done.”
