The White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, took a swipe at Florida’s migrant relocation program, labeling it “dangerous” and “unacceptable.” But she conveniently avoided commenting on the outrageous accusation made by California’s governor and attorney general, who suggested that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is guilty of kidnapping. Typical liberal hypocrisy, isn’t it?
The Florida Division of Emergency Management, in response to inquiries from Fox News, confirmed that dozens of migrants who willingly volunteered for relocation were flown to California as part of the state’s $12 million unauthorized alien transport program. Governor DeSantis, a leading Republican contender for the presidency, signed this law in February to address the immigration crisis.
However, the Democratic duo of California, Governor Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta, wasted no time in accusing Florida of exploiting these migrants. Newsom even resorted to name-calling, labeling DeSantis a “small, pathetic man” and insinuating that he committed kidnapping under California statutes. It seems that the left can’t resist using inflammatory rhetoric to score political points.
When confronted with the kidnapping allegation, Jean-Pierre conveniently invoked federal law, claiming that she couldn’t discuss campaign issues from the White House podium. Yet, she reiterated the administration’s position, denouncing the flights as “political stunts” and declaring them “dangerous and unacceptable.” It’s clear they are more interested in grandstanding than in finding real solutions.
What’s truly perplexing is the Democrats’ obsession with causing chaos and confusion. Jean-Pierre herself wonders, “What does that actually do for their constituency or for the people who are being put on these planes or on the buses? And it just doesn’t make sense.” Finally, something we can agree on. Their political games won’t solve the underlying immigration crisis.
Perhaps it’s time for Republicans to remind the Democrats that their sanctuary policies contribute to the surge of migrants at the border. It only makes sense that these migrants should be relocated to the very areas that attract them, including sanctuary cities. Texas has been leading the way by transporting thousands of migrants to cities like New York, Denver, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
Let’s not forget that it’s not just Florida. Mayors in Colorado and Texas have also engaged in the relocation of migrants across the country. And while left-leaning mayors in El Paso and Denver have been doing this for some time, suddenly, when Florida does it, it’s labeled as false imprisonment and kidnapping. The double standards and hypocrisy are mind-boggling.
Governor DeSantis and his team have yet to respond to Newsom’s outrageous kidnapping accusation. But one thing is clear: Republicans must stand firm against these baseless attacks and not let the Democrats’ political theater distract from the urgent need for meaningful immigration reform. It’s time for real solutions, not empty rhetoric.
