Florida governor Ron DeSantis filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration on Tuesday on behalf of the state of Florida, claiming that the “ideological” Biden White House is pursuing a “destructive and illegal” catch-and-release border policy that is leaving Florida’s citizens vulnerable.
Speaking alongside Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Tuesday afternoon in Fort Meyers, DeSantis called the Biden administration policy, which has led to a record number of illegal alien encounters with United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in recent months — and more than 1 million encounters in 2021 — a “total disaster.”
He specifically targeted the Biden administration’s unofficial “catch-and-release” policy, which allows captured illegal immigrants who claim asylum to remain in the United States until their claims can be heard in an immigration court — sometimes a matter of months. The policy runs counter to the Trump administration’s solution, which had prospective asylum seekers remaining in Mexico until their claims could be assessed.
Biden’s policy, DeSantis claims, has sent unscreened illegal immigrants into Florida — on purpose.
“I think this is intentional, I think this is ideological,” DeSantis said at the conference Tuesday. “They want a massive illegal migration into this country.” (Read more from “Governor Sues Biden Admin Over ‘Destructive and Illegal’ Border Policy” HERE)
