Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday responded to criticisms about the decision to move migrants from Venezuela on their way to Florida through Texas to Martha’s Vineyard.
During a stop in Bradenton to discuss tax relief proposals, the governor said he stands by the decision, and he also was critical of President Biden’s border security.
"Because it's our view that one, the border should be secure,” he said. “And we want to have Biden re-institute policies like 'Remain in Mexico' and making sure that people aren't overwhelming. But short of that, if you believe in open borders, then it's the sanctuary jurisdictions that should have to bear the brunt of the open borders."
