Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is hitting back at the Washington Post after a columnist claimed he is looking to profit politically “on the backs of vulnerable immigrant children.”
“We might start taking the Washington Post seriously if they convert their enormous office building, in one of DC’s most expensive neighborhoods, into a facility for unaccompanied minors,” DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw said in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.
Last week, DeSantis began implementing an emergency order that bans the issuance or renewal of all state licenses to Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) facilities that provide services to Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs), Breitbart News exclusively reported.
In addition, DeSantis has proposed six legislative solutions to disincentivize illegal immigration to Florida and financially cripple non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that profit from resettling border crossers in the state.
