Ron DeSantis, the Republican governor of Florida, had some harsh words for the Biden administration this week, slamming the federal government’s attempts to implement nationwide domestic travel restrictions against American citizens while encouraging mass migration and allowing illegal aliens to “pour across the the southern border.”
DeSantis posted an excerpt from a news conference in Port Charlotte to Twitter on Thursday with the caption, “The recent report that the Biden administration is considering restricting the travel of Floridians is completely absurd, especially when Biden allows illegal aliens to pour across our southern border. We won’t allow Floridians to be unfairly targeted for political purposes.”
“I think it’s an absurd report that they would be doing that. I think it would be unconstitutional, it would be unwise and it would be unjust,” DeSantis stated during the press conference, adding, “And if you think about it, restricting the right of Americans to travel freely throughout our country while allowing illegal aliens to pour across the southern border unmolested would be a ridiculous, but very damaging farce.”
“So we would oppose that one hundred percent, it would not be based in science, it would purely be a political attack against the people of Florida,” the governor said.
In February, DeSantis announced a statewide crackdown on Big Tech censorship, as reported by National File:
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, DeSantis announced a number of actions that would be taken against Big Tech by his administration, with the focus seemingly more on how Big Tech censorship and interference would effect elections within the state – more general measures were also included however.
Some of the new regulations include a mandatory opt-out from content filters created by Big Tech companies, which can leave users “shadowbanned” without the need for full platform removal, a right of action for all Floridians against Big Tech companies who violated this, and a number of daily fines related to interference in elections, including a $100,000 daily fine levied for any company that suspends political candidates.
DeSantis’ approval ratings continue to soar as he pushes back against the widely unpopular new policies of the Biden regime.
