Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took aim at President Joe Biden’s immigration policies over the weekend, accusing the administration of having a double standard when it comes to allowing Cuban migrants.
“They have a hundred-times stronger case for political persecution leaving a communist dictatorship than the other migrants who are coming across the border who are basically coming across the border because they want more economic opportunity,” DeSantis said during an appearance in Texas on Saturday.
“It’s a double standard, but honest, it’s something we expected because I do think a lot of their border policies are very political in nature in its intent,” he added.
The governor’s remarks come as his state has sent 50 law enforcement agents to Texas to assist with the border crisis, which DeSantis warned had implications for states across the country.
