Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) spoke at a rally for Kansas’ Attorney General Derek Schmidt, the GOP gubernatorial candidate.
DeSantis brought up the illegal immigrants he sent to Martha’s Vineyard.
DeSantis said, “The one place in the country where we see virtually no law and order is at the southern border. And this is a crisis. It’s now getting a little more attention.”
The crowd immediately stood and applauded. DeSantis continued, “This is a crisis. It is a crisis. And it’s a manufactured crisis because of Biden’s failed policies.”
The leftist community of Martha’s Vineyard did not help immigrants regarding jobs and housing, but they called National Guard and the people were deported off the island.
DeSantis concluded, “You have a legislature here that will produce a lot of good legislation. You just need a governor that will sign the legislation. And you guys can make that happen.”
Schmidt said DeSantis was “a man who was willing to step up and make the hard decisions.”

DeSantis also noted that he knew just how devoted Kansans were to their beloved Kansas City Chiefs, quipping that organizers of the rally “said they wanted to do it on a Sunday afternoon and I said, ‘the Kansas City Chiefs better not be playing.’”
Hours after the Kansas event, DeSantis, who has been spending tons of cash to support GOP candidates around the country, spoke at a rally in Wisconsin for GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels. Declaring the subject of immigration is “on the ballot” in November, he stated, “This border is now an issue in these elections. And I think it’s something that our candidates need to take,” CNN reported.
The Daily Wire reported on Sunday, “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R) political operation has raised a historic $177.4 million, more than any other governor in history … DeSantis is not being stingy with his money as he is giving millions to help down-ballot Republicans to further increase GOP majorities in the state legislature.”
