Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has promised to "shut down" illegal migrant crossings on the southern border if he's elected President.

“I’ve heard, as a Republican, talk about this southern border for years and years and years. I will finally be the President to bring this issue to a conclusion. We will shut the border down.”

Ron DeSantis Wants To Fix The Migrant Crisis

"The impacts of Biden’s Border Crisis are felt by communities across the nation," said Ron DeSantis in a statement. "The federal government’s abdication of duty undermines the sovereignty of our country and the rule of law."

Florida has also sent resources to the southern border, joining Tennessee, Nebraska, Mississippi, and several other states that have vowed to address the migrant crisis.

Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed an immigration overhaul bill designed to crack down on the migrant crisis. "The legislation I signed gives Florida the most ambitious anti-illegal immigration laws in the country, fighting back against reckless federal government policies and ensuring the Florida taxpayers are not footing the bill for illegal immigration.”

It's worth noting, however, that Governor DeSantis' stances on immigration aren't popular with everyone. Many businesses across Florida didn't open to the public on June 1 to protest a new immigration law that's scheduled to take effect in July. “Who’s to blame?" asked William De La Cruz during an interview with Noticias Telemundo. "Only the governor, because he stirred a hornet’s nest he shouldn’t have gotten involved with."

Ron DeSantis Also Promised To Get The Military "Back To Basics"

“I’m proud to have served in the United States Navy," said Ron DeSantis during a speech. "The people I served with were honorable, patriotic people. For you veterans in the crowd, thank you for your service. I think all of us have a sense of pride and being able to wear the cloth of your country.”

DeSantis continued to say aspects of the military have become politicized in recent years. “On day one as commander-in-chief, I'll rip it all out," he said. "We’re getting the military back to basics. We’re going to improve morale, and we’re going to get people to want to join the military again.”
