Ron DeSantis Wants to BLOCK This in America
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Since the beginning of President Joe Biden’s time in office, immigration has been a major hot-button issue. The president’s laissez-faire approach to border control has seen record numbers of undocumented migrants arrive in the United States since the beginning of last year. Many Liberals justify their preference for lax migration rules by claiming an influx of foreign nationals will improve our country, as it has in the past. However, according to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), this argument is incorrect.
DeSantis Says Further Immigration Is Unnecessary for Greatness
On Sunday, September 11, DeSantis gave the keynote speech at the Miami National Conservatism Conference. Over the course of an hour, the popular leader discussed a range of topics that are relevant to United States voters.
One subject he spent some time on was immigration. He noted that the US had benefited from inward migration many times in its history. However, he also noted the nation had enjoyed extended periods of growth and prosperity without significant immigration, such as in the immediate aftermath of World War II.
A Breitbart News report on DeSantis’ speech noted that, between 1924 and 1970, immigration levels remained low while the standard of living in the country improved significantly.
DeSantis’ Views on Corporations & Democrats
DeSantis was unapologetic in his assessment that Joe Biden was to blame for the problems on our southwest border. He highlighted the various problems that have accompanied the increase in illegal immigration since the beginning of the Biden administration, alleging the trafficking of drugs and people into the country was at record levels.
He mentioned Chinese-produced fentanyl in particular, saying the ultra-strong synthetic opioid was the cause of most deaths of people between the ages of 18 and 45 at the moment. Data released by the CDC earlier this year showed the number of drug overdose deaths increased by 15% in 2021.
The governor didn’t stop with immigration. In a dig at some of his party colleagues, he criticized the growing trend of “corporatism” within American politics.
He stressed he was a supporter of free markets, but opined that allowing corporations to do as they pleased was not conducive to a healthy economy. He said many Republicans equated “limited government” with anti-interventionist policies regarding corporations, but this, the governor stated, was a mistake.
What do you think of Ron DeSantis’ speech? Was he correct in his assessment of the situation regarding immigration?
