Within several weeks of having been deployed to Texas to help police the U.S. southern border with Mexico, Gov. Ron DeSantis has announced that law enforcement teams on the ground have already assisted in 190 arrests of criminal illegal aliens, including the detention of illegal aliens wanted for capital murder.

In addition, Florida law enforcement personnel, which consists of elements from

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), Florida National Guard (FLNG), Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) - Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), also assisted Texas officials in arresting an MS-13 gang member that was on the U.S. Terror Watch List.

In all, since first arriving in the border region, Florida law enforcement and military elements have “made contact” with an estimated 5,800 illegal aliens.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is currently running for President, has vowed to assist Texas and other border states in mitigating the influx of illegal immigration and the criminality that follows it.

“The impacts of Biden’s Border Crisis are felt by communities across the nation, and the federal government’s abdication of duty undermines the sovereignty of our country and the rule of law,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “At my direction, state agencies including law enforcement and the Florida National Guard are being deployed to Texas, with assets including personnel, boats and planes. While Biden ignores the crisis he created, Florida stands ready to help Texas respond to this crisis."
