DeSantis Sends Warning to Criminal Illegals: ‘You Are Going to Regret Coming to Florida’

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has sent a stern warning to criminal illegal aliens who are planning to head to Florida after being deported from the United States.

On Friday, DeSantis signed three bills to combat illegal immigration in Florida.

These bills also continue Florida’s efforts to maintain law and order and take proactive measures against illegal aliens who engage in criminal activity.

During a press conference about the moves, DeSantis dropped the hammer on deported criminal illegals.

The governor promised they would “regret coming to the state of Florida.”

“If you have been deported, and you come to this state, and you’re here illegally, and you commit crimes, we are throwing the book at you,” DeSantis vowed.

“You are going to regret coming to the state of Florida.”

“The federal government has failed in its responsibility to secure our southern border, leaving states to fend for themselves,” DeSantis added in a statement.

“In Florida, we do not tolerate illegal immigration, let alone lawlessness committed by illegal aliens who shouldn’t be here in the first place.

“The bills I signed today further enhance Florida’s capabilities to uphold the law.”

Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez noted that the laws in Florida could be used in other states to crack down on illegal border crossers.

“Under the leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida has provided a blueprint for other states to protect their citizens against illegal immigration,” said Nuñez.

“Our administration will not stand on the sidelines and watch as the Biden Border Crisis continues to spiral out of control.

“I’m proud to serve alongside Governor DeSantis as we take action to protect Floridians in every corner of our state.”

Attorney General Ashley Moody placed the blame for the border crisis firmly on Democrat President Joe Biden.

“Ever since President Biden was sworn in, his administration has taken systematic steps to dismantle our country’s public safety immigration laws,” said Moody.

“I am grateful that here in Florida, we have leaders who will step up to keep Floridians safe.

“Thanks to Governor DeSantis and our lawmakers, those here illegally committing crimes will face harsh penalties and we will continue to build a stronger, safer Florida.”

Governor Ron DeSantis signed the following bills into law:

  • SB 1036, which enhances penalties for a crime committed by an individual who returns to the country illegally after an initial deportation.
    • A third-degree felony (up to 5 years in prison) after deportation will be charged as a second-degree felony (up to 15 years in prison).
    • A second-degree felony (up to 15 years in prison) after deportation will be charged as a first-degree felony (up to 30 years in prison).
    • A first-degree felony (up to 30 years in prison) after deportation will be charged as a life felony.
    • SB 1036 also enhances penalties for crimes committed in furtherance of drug cartels.
  • HB 1451, which prevents counties and municipalities from accepting ID cards issued to illegal aliens by other jurisdictions.
    • Florida already prohibits local jurisdictions from issuing IDs or driver licenses to illegal immigrants.
  • HB 1589, which increases penalties on individuals who operate a vehicle without a license.
    • Increases the maximum sentence from 60 days in jail to one year in jail for two or more offenses, and a minimum mandatory sentence of ten days in jail for three or more offenses.

Additionally, DeSantis applauded the Legislature for passing Senate Memorial 1020.

The bill urges Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken to designate the drug cartels, that operate at the Southern Border, as Foreign Terrorist Organizations.
