DeSantis Calls Out Virtue-Signaling ‘Fraud’ on the Border
After facing criticism for sending illegal immigrants to Massachusetts, DeSantis took aim at leftist mayors and the President himself.
From The Daily Wire. After his transport of illegal immigrants to the posh area of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, elicited widespread approval among conservatives and handwringing among leftists, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) fired a salvo at the hypocrisy of his detractors, snapping, “Their virtue-signaling is a fraud.” …
“We take what is happening at the southern border very seriously, unlike some, and unlike the President of the United States, who has refused to lift a finger to secure that border,” he charged. “You’ve had millions and millions of people pouring across illegally; record amount of fentanyl coming into our country; it is absolutely killing Americans in record numbers; of course you have criminal aliens.”
“Just the sheer number of people, it’s not the way you run a country,” he declared.
After noting that huge numbers of people want to emigrate to Florida, he continued, “If you have folks that are inclined to think Florida’s a good place, our message to them is that we are not a sanctuary state…” …
“And all of those people in D.C. and New York were beating their chests when Trump was president, saying they were so proud to be sanctuary jurisdictions, saying how bad it was to have a secure border,” he noted. “The minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door, they all of a sudden go berserk and they’re so upset that this is happening. It just shows you their virtue-signaling is a fraud.” …
