Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Vice President Kamala Harris may very well be the Republican and Democrat nominees for president.
If that is the case, Governor DeSantis may already have scored a knockout blow.
Ron DeSantis just set up a Supreme Court showdown that will wreck Kamala Harris.
Joe Biden appointed Kamala Harris as his border czar in March.
Since that announcement, Harris ignored the border and the crisis deteriorated on a daily basis.
The low point came when 15,000 Haitian illegal aliens huddled under a bridge in Texas on the hope that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will grant them amnesty.
The Haitian illegal aliens guessed correctly as Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that the administration released 12,000 of the Haitian illegal aliens into the United States.
Kamala Harris claimed as border czar her job was to address the root causes of illegal immigration.
But it’s obvious to many Americans that the root cause of the current surge of illegal aliens are the open borders policies of the Biden administration and the magnet of potential amnesty.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his administration would fight back as Governor DeSantis directed Attorney General Ashley Moody to sue the Biden administration over the policy of catch and release which turned hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens loose into the United States since Biden took office.
This lawsuit could go all the way to the Supreme Court.
“Since President Biden took office – which has been less than one year – the Border Patrol has released nearly a quarter million illegal aliens into the United States,” Governor DeSantis announced. “This executive order makes it clear that Florida resources will not be used to prop up the failed open border agenda enacted by this administration. Attorney General Ashley Moody has also filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration challenging its policy of catching and releasing the staggering number of illegal aliens apprehended at the border into the United States.
Attorney General Moody ripped Biden and border czar Kamala Harris for violating federal law with their open borders policies.
“The Biden administration’s brazen disregard for federal immigration law is jeopardizing the safety and security of our state and nation, all while costing Florida taxpayers. Biden’s lax border policy is an open invitation to dangerous criminals, human traffickers and drugs traffickers to enter the United States—creating a crisis at the Southern Border like we have never seen,” Attorney General Moody stated. “Because Biden is not requiring those crossing the border to go through the legally mandated channels, they are coming into our country without being properly processed. The federal government cannot simply ignore federal laws because it does not agree with them politically. The Biden administration must implement the immigration policy required under federal law and we are asking the court to take swift action to reduce the harm caused by Biden’s inaction.”
Polling data shows Kamala Harris is the least popular vice president in the last 50 years.
The image of Harris as a failure in her role as border czar is driving those lousy poll numbers.
If Harris and DeSantis are indeed the nominees – which could be the case as Joe Biden could step aside and Donald Trump may not run in 2024 – DeSantis already set the stage to make the illegal immigration and Kamala Harris’ dereliction of duty as border czar the central issue of the campaign.
