Governor Ron DeSantis Teases Border Security Policy with Video Preview Ahead of Announcement

Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is set to unveil his border security policy in a highly anticipated announcement scheduled for Monday morning. In a strategic move, DeSantis will release a preview video on Sunday, obtained in advance by The Daily Caller.

The video emphasizes the severity of the border crisis and showcases DeSantis’ commitment to securing the border and combating cartels.

To build anticipation for his policy announcement, DeSantis’s campaign is reportedly planning to launch a range of merchandise inspired by the video’s various themes.

“The border is a complete disaster,” the text reads in the ad followed by anchors discussing the border crisis.

“The crisis at the southern border: a record 2.76 million migrants crossed the border during the 2022 fiscal year, shattering the previous annual record by more than one million,” one anchor says.

“Some not old enough to walk but have already traveled hundreds of miles,” another anchor states in the ad, which continues.

“There has been this record surge of migrants.”

“Border patrol agents apprehended more than 10,000 migrants along the U.S / Mexican border yesterday.”

“A growing humanitarian crisis at the southern border.”

“Drugs coming across the border here are fueling an unprecedented epidemic across the country, the toll of which can be counted in the skyrocketing number of overdose deaths.”

“What has been happening under President Biden’s watch is that so many immigrants think it will be easier to enter the United States.”

“We will secure the border. We will stop the cartles. We will build the wall. We will stop the invasion. No excuses,” text reads, concluding the ad

In May, DeSantis signed a piece of anti-illegal immigration legislation, making E-Verify mandatory for Florida employers with more than 25 employees and suspending the licenses of any Florida employer who knowingly employs illegal immigrants. The bill also focuses on stronger penalties for human smuggling, banning local governments from issuing identification documents to illegal immigrants, invalidating ID cards issued to illegal immigrants in other states, and more.

DeSantis previewed his announcement Friday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference in Washington, D.C.

“I will finally be the president to bring the issue of our open southern border to a conclusion. I’ve heard about this since I’ve been an adult. For decades, we have complained about the open border, we have complained about everything that is happening, now is the time to act. On day one, we declare a national emergency. We mobilize all the assets, including the military. Yes, we build a border wall. We stop the invasion. And we hold the drug cartels accountable for the carnage they are causing in this country,” he said in his speech.

His border security policy announcement will take place Monday, 9 a.m. CT.
