2024 presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis is calling for action on the border and age limits for those wishing to run for president.
The Florida Governor visited the Montgomery County History Center in Red Oak Saturday morning for a meet and greet with supporters covering various topics but spent a reasonable amount of time criticizing the Biden Administration and past presidents for their handling of the U.S.-Mexico border. Calling it a day one issue, DeSantis says he would officially declare a national emergency on the border.
"We're going to mobilize resources, including our military to be at the border, we're going to stop the invasion and allow the bogus asylum claims because they can wait in Mexico and we will building a border wall, because I think it is important," said DeSantis. "The thing that I'm willing to do that other president's have not and even these candidates, we're going to hold these Mexican drug cartels accountable for what they are doing to our people. That means we will use deadly force against the Mexican drug cartels."
