    ..."He's imported more virus from around the world by having a wide open southern border. You have hundreds of thousands of people pouring across every month. And it's not just from Mexico. In fact, it's rarely from Mexico. You have over a hundred different countries where people are pouring through. Not only are they letting them through, they're then farming them out all across our communities across this country. Putting them on planes, putting them on buses," DeSantis said. "Do you think they're worried about COVID for that? Of course not. So he's facilitating... who knows what new variants are out there? But I can tell you whatever variants are around the world, they're coming across that southern border. And so he's not shutting down the virus, he's helping to facilitate it in our country."

    Kudos to DeSantis for calling out the Biden administration's failure to secure the border, as illegals are spread throughout the country.

    He also calls out that the govt can not mandate vaccines or without services.

    Likewise in Texas, a border wall construction has resumed, and crossing illegals are being arrested by local police since the Border Patrol has been muzzled.

    I liked DeSantis at first, but he went all in with his populist polices and some of them are becoming flat out absurd. Now we have all kinds of bans and mandates (and he keeps adding more) which he has put in place to make it as hard as possible for people to protect their customers (or students) against the virus. Some cruise lines are threatening to leave Florida because of him. He created these bans and mandates and now he is trying to blame someone else for the issues they created. Own your actions dude!! Governor of Arkansas mimicked DeSantis and Abbot with the bans and mandates, and now he says he regrets it and is trying to overturn his own mandates.

    That is simply not true. CBP arrested and deported 178 000 illegals in June alone, and tons more every month. Stop spreading fake news.

    He is trying to shift blame, so obviously he is not taking it seriously.

    There’s the virus and other diseases the illegals carry and then there’s the cost of having them here. I won’t even mention how they pack our schools, courtrooms, jails and prisons. And I won’t mention the gangs they belong to, the crimes they commit and their infamous drinking and driving. Plus they abuse women. I won’t mention any of that.

    Awesome...:bored:

    Has DeSantis declared 2+2 to Equal 5, Yet?

    Has DeSantis declared that There is No Water in the Pacific Ocean, Yet?

    Those "DeSantis.Proclamations" (based on the egregiously misguided precedent set by this earth-shattering "Breaking News") would certainly be worthy of multiple threads on the front page of Current Events section.

    Oh, and on-topic, as far as DeSantis (and his ludicrous opinion in the OP):

    DeSantis is (obviously) a Complete Moron (and is blatantly pandering to the Delusional Anti-Vaxxers).

    The numbers are still through the roof. Highest numbers since 2006.

    Last estimate I read said only 1 in 5 are vaccinated. Top destinations are Florida and Texas.

    Arrest numbers? Yes, they are arresting them, and using Title-42 to send them back ASAP. You just proved that his claim "they are letting them through" is a lie. Trying to blame the Covid surge on illegals is absurd, a very weak attempt at blame shifting and deflection. Is he really stupid enough to think that focusing on immigration is the best way to combat the current Covid surge? If so, then I am even more disappointed at him.

    Another day in the MAGA mind.

    In February 2020, this pandemic was just another Democrat invention.

    Second, the virus wasn't going to kill many people.

    And now, if red states are more affected today than others, it's because of illegals.

    The truth is, if Trump had taken this pandemic seriously and the Concervatives were getting vaccinated at the same rate as the Democrats, the virus would be nearly defeated today, as it's in virtually every other nation in the West.

    The apprehended are being released without testing and with an estimated 20% vaccine rate.

    Biden is an idiot with blood on his hands.
    Democrats have no qualms with the Covid coming over the border.

    I provided a link to US Border Patrol official site, so either they are lying, or you are misinformed.

    Millions of people visit Florida every year, and millions are not vaccinated.

    Either way, trying to make the Covid surge into an immigration issue might work on the weak minded, but won't work on average people, or those who are above average. Its an absurd angle, and its sad DeSantis is trying to play that card. We need someone to man up and take charge as opposed to saying crap like that.

    I am not a Dem or a fan of Biden, but I think Biden is right when he says DeSantis needs to get out of the way. If he refuses to roll up his sleeves and get stuff done, then someone else needs to do it. Right now DeSantis is just standing in the way and trying to blame everyone around him, even thought he is supposed to be the man in charge in FL.

    Mass migration is one way diseases spread, its undeniable.

    We have dems saying black people need to show proof of vaccination to get lunch. And yet a wide open border, with an influx of a million people is not an issue.

    If this is not a reason to enforce the border in the eyes of some, then they are GDamn liars when they say they dont want open borders.

    Try hell. 1 million illegals have crossed the border SO FAR JUST THIS YEAR. Your hero Joe Biden is 100% responsible for this, not DeSantis. Joe Biden's policy is to require AMERICAN citizens to be tested before coming into the country by air, but allowing covid-infected illegals free entry without testing. That's a fact jack.

    If 20% of the illegals have covid, you have imported 200,000 spreaders. My god man how hard is this **** to understand? If this surge is a "surge of the unvaccinated", just like Biden has said, then you're damn right illegal immigration is a large part of the problem.

    Hey, blame immigration if you like. Blame Biden. I mean, DeSantis just did, so why shouldn't you repeat after him? That's how it works, right?

    Me....its takes more than that to fool me.

    Have a nice day.

    178 000 per month being arrested and deported, so anyone who claims border is not enforced is a GDamn liar (your choice of words).

    It doesn't take much to play you people.......One simple comment from a political leader, and you all start parroting his words.......I guess it explains a lot.

    Nah, not my hero. I'm just not as easily played as you.

    Biden sets immigration policy.

    To try and impose restrictions on Americans while leaving the border open is directly con tradictory.

    Hey, blame immigration if you like. Blame Biden. Blame anyone. I mean, DeSantis just did, so why shouldn't you repeat after him? That's how it works, right?

    178 000 illegals per month being arrested and deported per month, so how is the border open? Also, US just extended Title-42 (expedited deportations), so how are they "letting everyone in"?

    The surge is global, but if there are lot of cases in Florida, then its because immigrants......all righty then.

    It doesn't take much to play you people.......One simple comment from a political leader, and you all start parroting his words.......I guess it explains a lot.

    Man, its like talking to a wall.....

    Why are so many coming here? It’s because, like the presidents of Guatemala and Mexico said, Biden invited them and the visits made by Harris only seemed to make things worse.

    The left sees that as a net gain of 800,000 voters, even more if the illegal super spreaders don’t die.

    I haven't even been listening to DeSantis since I'm not in Florida....I'm in a border state being over run with illegals. Since all the lefties claim these illegals need asylum as they are from some third world shitholes, it is just common sense that when a million third world shithole people come flooding in, they bring with them covid. Or do lefties think these abused asylum seekers have top notch free healthcare and 100% vaccination rates?

    You can't have it both ways.

    I have to get it to CNN, they actually convince naive people of their bullshit.
