Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is sending approximately 1,000 personnel from Florida to the Texas border with Mexico to assist with the influx of border crossings. “The impacts of Biden’s Border Crisis are felt by communities across the nation, and the federal government’s abdication of duty undermines the sovereignty of our country and the rule of law,” DeSantis said in a released statement.

  3. @ vicious fish… Although I’ll miss him as our Governor, he’ll make a great President. I think a Ron DeSantis/Tim Scott ticket would take it in a landslide.
