Although Biden discusses the migrant crisis, he does not discuss the border crisis. An administration official stated on Thursday that the Biden administration is continuing to keep a close eye on the prospect of Republican governors secretly bringing groups of migrants to Democratic areas. The official was speaking on behalf of the government.
Republicans want a secure border. Republican governors like Texas’ Greg Abbott and, more recently, Florida’s Ron DeSantis have made a habit of moving migrants from their Sun Belt states to northern Democratic-voting areas. While their judgments may have policy justifications, there are also apparent political motives.
Joe Biden came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to make the vilest, bigoted, and divisive speech ever given by an American president, Trump told a raucous audience at the Scranton event. There is only one party waging war with American democracy, restricting free expression and criminalizing the opposition, Trump blasted.
Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Florida, criticized DeSantis voters on Wednesday, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis hit back. As Crist won the Democratic gubernatorial nomination Tuesday, he told supporters he would not seek votes from DeSantis supporters. This is despite the fact that he would literally need a miracle to win against Ron DeSantis.
