DeSantis’ Relocation Program Brings Attention The Border Crisis Has Long Deserved

Despite how one may feel about the tactics being employed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), there is no denying that he is bringing America’s immigration crisis into the national spotlight.

DeSantis has remained in the national news thanks to his decision to send migrants in Florida to self-proclaimed “sanctuary cities,” including a group of 48 migrants he sent last week to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

The Biden administration has been quick to criticize DeSantis’ relocation program, most recently when it was rumored that DeSantis was sending a plane full of migrants to Biden’s home state of Delaware.

“Our heads-up did not come from Gov. DeSantis, because his only goal is, as he’s made it
really clear, is to create chaos and use immigrants fleeing communism as political pawns,” said White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “So it’s about creating political theater for him.”

The plane never did go to Delaware, leaving Delaware officials, White House officials, and members of the press waiting at the airport.

Incidents such as this demonstrate the intense scrutiny DeSantis is under, which, in turn, brings attention to the border crisis.

Jennie Taer, reporter for The Daily Caller, was at the airport in Delaware where the migrants were rumored to be landing.

“I’ve never seen this much media at the border, just here in Delaware,” she wrote.

The Daily Caller co-founder Neil Patel underscored this point.

“The biggest problem with the growing border crisis is nobody seems to care,” Patel wrote. “The people who write for America’s top newspapers and the talking heads on American television are in the big cities.”

“My news company, The Daily Caller, has had reporters all over these border communities,” he continued. “The corporate media? Not so much.”

Patel also emphasized the toll the immigration crisis has taken on America, in particular border towns.

“The result has been catastrophic for America,” wrote Patel. “It’s also been a tragedy for many migrants, but no one has paid a larger price for the complete breakdown on the border than America’s border towns.”
