The governors do not disappoint! Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis jabbed at Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom during a Fox News interview Monday night.
Newsom had claimed that his state was the “real freedom state.”
But DeSantis and Fox News host Sean Hannity discussed how California is losing approximately 1,000 residents per day while Florida is gaining nearly 1,000 per day. These numbers have to do with the major differences in how the two states are governed.
“Florida, we’re not a sanctuary state,” DeSantis said. “When I became governor, we were able to ban sanctuary cities. The rule of law is important. And so, of course, we’re not going to recognize lawless identifications that are done by California.”
“California, they have abandoned the rule of law,” he continued. “They are a sanctuary state. They don’t follow federal immigration laws. And, of course, the Soros prosecutors, they pick and choose which laws to enforce. There will be people in Los Angeles who will get mugged, Sean, on the street and the prosecutor won’t bring charges against these guys, and they end up going out and they victimize other people.”
“So, I think public safety is incredibly important,” he added. “And when you abandon the rule of law, you end up getting a lot of the results that they have had in California, and people respond by fleeing the jurisdiction.”
“The rule of law is important… But in California, these Soros prosecutors pick and choose which laws to enforce. People respond by fleeing the jurisdiction.”
Well, you can’t get much clearer than that. The numbers really speak for themselves, but DeSantis went further and hit the nail on the head.
You can’t keep doing an end run around the law, and you can’t keep making asinine rules like firing police dogs because they are racist.
The people know what freedom looks like.
"The rule of law is important… But in California, these Soros prosecutors pick and choose which laws to enforce. People respond by fleeing the jurisdiction."
