Ron DeSantis Drops Hammer On ‘Illegal Aliens’ Busted Looting: “Drag them out by the collars and send them back to where they came from”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis dropped the hammer on illegal aliens busted looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. DeSantis vowed to crack down hard on any looting and he is a man of his word.
He said: “We’ve had four looters that were arrested, I guess a couple of days ago, and they need to be brought to justice and we’re not going to tolerate it. But you know, three of the four are illegal aliens so these are people that are foreigners, 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.”
“If I could I would take those three looters, I’d drag them out by the collars and send them back to where they came from.”
On Thursday, Omar Mejia Ortiz, 33, Valerie Celeste Salcedo Mena, 26, Brandon Mauricio Araya, 20, and Steve Eduardo Sanchez Araya, 20, were arrested by Lee County sheriff’s deputies.
Brandon and Steve Araya as well as Valerie Mena were charged with grand larceny. Omar Ortiz was charged with petit larceny.
DeSantis also took a swipe at Biden after Pinellas County Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Hartwick, “got killed by a twice-deported illegal alien from Central America.”
“Someone was operating heavy machinery, was not eligible to work and had fraudulent documents — did not have the proper license — and ran over a deputy. How is that something that should be acceptable?
“I do think that what has happened by having massive numbers of people coming across the border has not been good for this country,” he said.

Ron Desantis has opened up an 11 point lead in his bid for re-election according to a poll from Mason-Dixon research. He won election by less than a point in 2018. If he wins by 11 or more it would be the biggest Republican win in a statewide race in modern Florida history.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) October 5, 2022
