Florida Governor Ron DeSantis expressed support for allowing states to make immigration arrests, citing the federal government’s failure to enforce immigration laws.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also defended a law expanding the authority of local officials in immigration matters.

The White House criticized the Texas law and Abbott’s handling of migrants, while DeSantis and Abbott both emphasized the need for state and local involvement in immigration enforcement. (Trending: Joe Biden Caught In Another Major Lie About J6)

DeSantis said, “When I’m president, we will of course,” when discussing immigration arrests.

“It’s a federal issue … But states and local localities should absolutely be able to supplement the federal government,” he continued.

“The federal government asserts under the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution that they have the sole dominion over enforcing immigration laws, but they’re choosing not to faithfully enforce immigration laws,” he explained.
