Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) activated the National Guard to address the hundreds of illegal aliens who arrived to the Florida Keys.
DeSantis signed an executive order on Friday to mobilize the Guard and direct Florida law enforcement agencies and other state agencies to assist local governments in responding to the migrant arrivals.
“As the negative impacts of [President] Biden’s lawless immigration policies continue unabated, the burden of the Biden administration’s failure falls on local law enforcement who lack the resources to deal with the crisis,” DeSantis said in a press release.
“That is why I am activating the National Guard and directing state resources to help alleviate the strain on local resources. When Biden continues to ignore his legal responsibilities, we will step in to support our communities,” he continued.
