Gillum dodges key immigration question during debate

Gillum dodges key immigration question during debate


Will you honor  request from Donald Trump’s ICE agency, if they provide a retainer request, would you honor it as governor?

That was a key question that Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis posed to Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum during the first of two debates between the two.

Gillum did not answer the question, prompting DeSantis is make the case that Gillum would be open to releasing criminal illegal immigrants, who already served time in the U.S., into American communities.

Gillum has stated that he would like to see ICE replaced.
