Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said last week that three of four people who were arrested on charges of looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian were illegally residing in America.
And he expressed outrage at their presence.
“Three of the four are illegal aliens, and so these are people that are foreigners,” he said. “They’re illegally in our country, and not only that, they tried to loot and ransack in the aftermath of a natural disaster. I mean, they should be prosecuted, but they need to be sent back to their home country. They should not be here at all.”

DeSantis had previously warned potential looters that Florida is a “Second Amendment state” and looting wouldn’t be tolerated.
Florida is a law and order state.
