Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) signs the "Biden Border Crisis Executive Order," which sues the Biden Administration to follow federal regulations pertaining to the border and prohibits state agencies from working with the Biden Administration on issues of immigration and border enforcement.

Ron DeSantis was joined by AG Ashley Moody to announce three significant actions Florida is taking to address the Joe Biden Border Crisis. First, Governor Ron DeSantis has issued Executive Order 21-223 to prohibit all FL agencies under the purview of Governor DeSantis from facilitating illegal immigration into Florida, otherwise required by federal or state law, and require the collection of information from state officials on the scope and costs of illegal immigration in Florida. Second, Governor DeSantis also announced the appointment of Larry Keefe, former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, as Public Safety Czar to ensure the actions directed by the executive order are carried out. Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley  Moody announced that Florida has filed suit against the President Joe Biden Administration challenging its “catch and release” policy.

“Since President Joe Biden took office – which has been less than one year – the Border Patrol has released nearly a quarter-million illegal aliens into the United States of America,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. This executive order makes it clear that Florida resources will not be used to prop up the failed open border agenda enacted by this administration. Attorney General Ashley Moody has also filed a lawsuit against the Joe Biden Administration challenging its policy of catching and releasing the staggering number of illegal aliens apprehended at the border into the United States of America.

“Further, I am proud to appoint Larry Keefe to serve as Public Safety Czar as we take key steps to protect Florida taxpayers from bearing the burden of reckless immigration policies. We will continue to hold the federal government accountable for refusing to enforce the immigration laws of this country.”

“The Joe Biden Administration’s brazen disregard for federal immigration law is jeopardizing the safety and security of our state and nation, all while costing Florida taxpayers. Biden’s lax border policy is an open invitation to dangerous criminals, human traffickers, and drugs traffickers to enter the US—creating a crisis at the Southern Border like we have never seen,” said Attorney General Ashley Moody. “Because Biden is not requiring those crossing the border to go through the legally mandated channels, they are coming into our country without being properly processed. The federal government cannot simply ignore federal laws because it does not agree with them politically. The Joe Biden administration must implement the immigration policy required under federal law and we are asking the court to take swift action to reduce the harm caused by Biden’s inaction.”

“As a former U.S. Attorney, I saw illegal aliens that would get deported and come back, and then get deported and come back in an endless cycle,” said Larry Keefe, Public Safety Czar. “The states, including Florida, bear the brunt of this cycle. Over the coming weeks and months, our state agencies will be addressing the impacts illegal immigration has had on our state. I want to thank Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for appointing me to lead these efforts.”

Today’s announcements build off previous actions taken by Governor Ron DeSantis. Most recently, the Governor sent a letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on August 26th, urging the Biden Administration to provide more transparency concerning the resettlement of illegal aliens in Florida and to consult in advance with state leadership before illegal aliens are resettled in the state. The letter has gone unanswered.

Although Biden has been in office for only 251 days, the number of encounters at the Southwest border has skyrocketed from 78,000 in January 2021 to more than 212,000 in July 2021. The 171% increase is alarming and is the highest in more than 20 years.

Additionally, the number of illegal aliens who were apprehended and subsequently released by the Border Patrol in July alone was a staggering 60,607, a massive increase from the 1,324 in this category who were released in January. By contrast, in the last full month of the Trump Administration, only 17 aliens in this category were released.
