In recent days, images showing the state of Florida in the United States, practically deserted, have become a trend on social networks. empty malls, construction sites with no workers in sight; I can basically take you to a ghost town. What happened? The state’s governor, Ron DeSantis, announced and assured that they were going to “arrest and deport all undocumented immigrant workers”, words that caused panic among the Latin American population.
Biden’s Border Crisis is a catastrophe.
While Washington abdicates its responsibility to secure our border, Florida is once again stepping up.
Today, I signed legislation to combat illegal immigration and to deter illegal immigrants from coming to Florida.

“Biden’s border crisis is a catastrophe.
As Washington fulfills its responsibility to secure our border, Florida is leading the way once again.
Today I signed legislation to combat illegal immigration and prevent illegal immigrants from coming to Florida.”
Nadie Se Atreve contacted her correspondent in Mexico, Alexis Lozano, who noted the reference in the passport seal to explain how next year’s United States presidential election could affect her country.
Lozano insisted that DeSantis and former President Donald Trump – most recently convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 1990 – would be candidates in the election, facing Joe Biden, the current head of state. Both the governor and former president belong to the Republican Party, sharing ideals and conciliatory positions directed against, among them, the LGBTQ+ community and the Latino community.
Many undocumented immigrants may be deported to Mexico, while many others wait at the country’s northern border for a response to their requests for political asylum. This situation, the communicator explained, would produce great consequences for the current overcrowding because “when you can’t cross people make tents out of what they find”.
