DeSantis declares a state of emergency in Florida

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has declared a state of emergency over the arrival of “unlawful aliens” in Florida.

The executive order provides for the Florida National Guard to be activated as needed to deal with the emergency.

“Based on the foregoing conditions, I hereby state that the migration of unauthorized aliens into the state of Florida is likely to be a major disaster. I therefore declare that the state of Florida is under a state of emergency,” the executive said sequence explained. “I command the Adjutant General to activate the Florida National Guard as needed to address this emergency.”

The move comes as large numbers of immigrants continue to flood America’s southern border – US Customs and Border Protection reports an enormous number of encounters with the southwestern land border month after month.

Florida has seen immigrants arriving by water. “During the last 24 hours, Border Patrol agents and LE partners responded to 5 migrant landings and encountered 90 Cuban migrants in the Florida Keys. The migrants arrived on rustic ships and residents notified local authorities,” said US Border Patrol Miami Chief Patrol Agent N. Slosar tweeted on Friday.

Dry Tortugas National Park, west of Key West, Florida, was recently closed to public access due to immigrants arriving there, but it is intended Reopening on January 8th.

DeSantis, a Republican, was recently sworn for his second term.

“As the negative impact of Biden’s lawless immigration policies continues unabated, the onus of the Biden administration’s failures rests with local law enforcement agencies, which lack the resources to deal with the crisis,” DeSantis said, according to a press release. “That’s why I’m activating the National Guard and initiating government resources to ease the strain on local resources. If Biden continues to ignore his legal responsibilities, we will step in to support our communities.” DeSantis declares a state of emergency in Florida
