DeSantis Campaign Press Release - Ron DeSantis: "They say the border's secure. They are lying to you."

November 30, 2023

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – During his debate against Gavin Newsom on Fox News, Ron DeSantis said:

"Well, I'll tell you what, it's deja vu all over again with that flurry of lies. This is a guy that says the Biden administration is not lying to the public about the border. They go to the White House briefing room every day. They say the border's secure. They are lying to you. We know that that's not true. Gavin Newsom is lying to you. And he says somehow I supported these things, which I didn't do.

He's also lying to you about what it's going to take to solve this problem. California is a sanctuary state. They thumbed their nose at federal immigration law, and this has real consequences. There was an illegal alien Herbert Nixon Flores, who was in LA, in custody. He was a repeat criminal. ICE wanted to take him into custody, because then they would be able to deport them. LA refuses to work with ICE, and so they wouldn't turn him over. They ended up releasing him on the street. He ends up murdering the mother of a three-year old little girl. Those policies are deadly. They do not work. And I'll tell you this, the Martha's Vineyard transport - Martha's Vineyard said it was a sanctuary jurisdiction. Kind of reminds me about Gavin Newsom when he restricted Californians, then he went to the French Laundry. These liberal elites, they like to impose burdens on you. They don't want to have to face the consequences of their actions. So we've got a lot of elites who want open borders, who lecture everybody else about it - Then the minute they have to deal with any of the consequences? Oh man, all hell breaks loose."
