Gov. Ron DeSantis said Friday he wants new state laws protecting Florida from the "Biden border crisis" that he directly tied to the stabbing death of a Jacksonville resident in a case where authorities charged a Honduran man who posed as a 17-year-old under a fake name.
DeSantis made the link to that homicide case during a news conference at Jacksonville International Airport while saying President Joe Biden's immigration policies have left Florida exposed to people arriving from other countries without state and local officials knowing who they are.
U.S. Rep. John Rutherford, who has criticized federal flights into Jacksonville of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border, joined DeSantis in blasting the Biden administration over immigration.
"The Biden-Harris administration has blood on their hands," he said, referring to Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
He said the administration's policies "are allowing gang members and criminal aliens to come across our borders and, as we saw right here in Jacksonville, kill our citizens."
The Southern Poverty Law Center quickly opposed DeSantis's proposals, saying he is "yet again targeting immigrant communities across Florida, this time using children as pawns to further his anti-immigrant and xenophobic agenda."
DeSantis rolled out a series of legislative proposals that he said would deter businesses and organizations from working with the federal government on what DeSantis called "illegal immigration" by people crossing the southern border.

“Yahoo” is basically a “Leftist organization”.
Not basically leftist, more like all out leftist.
They [Biden, Harris, and the Democrat Party, including the Wise Latina] already have the blood of untold millions of murdered infants on their hands. Do you think that one more or even a million more murder victims will matter to thrm? Or to Democrat voters?
Do they still have all the comments turned off?
The SPLC is a terroristic hate group.
