DeSantis' scathing response to Gavin Newsom's threats

The Rubin Report

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently sent tens of migrants from the U.S. southern border to California on private planes — and California Governor Gavin Newsom is not happy.

While Newsom has threatened criminal charges, DeSantis is not backing down and has responded to Newsom’s accusations.

“These sanctuary jurisdictions are part of the reason we have this problem because they have endorsed and agitated for these types of open-border policies,” DeSantis began.

“They have bragged that they are sanctuary jurisdictions. They attack the previous administration’s efforts to try to have border security and so that’s the policies they’ve [staked] out,” he continued.

“When they have to deal with some of the fruits of that, they all of a sudden become very, very upset about that,” he added.

DeSantis says this is because California is a sanctuary state, which means it prohibits local and state agencies from cooperating with ICE regarding illegal immigrants who have committed misdemeanors.

He believes that the border should be closed and the mess that follows when it's not should be cleaned up by those advocating for an open border.

“We’re not a sanctuary in Florida,” DeSantis continues, “why don’t we all just come together and say the current policy is a failure? Any country worth its salt would have control over its own borders.”

Dave Rubin agrees.

“Just on the tone and the body language, when you’re telling the truth versus lying, it’s just so obvious who’s in the right here,” he says.

“To his last point, shouldn’t Gavin Newsom — even if Gavin Newsom believes that Cali should be a sanctuary state, in San Francisco we should just welcome more illegals to enjoy the free fentanyl and everything — shouldn’t his frustration be with Biden first?” Rubin asks.
