Governor DeSantis brought the heat to the Ukraine aid package — and the lack of any U.S. border package — criticizing Republicans in Congress for a “real failure.”

Here’s how the Governor put it:

“The Number One issue that our voters wanted them to address is the southern border and the massive influx of foreigners by the millions coming into this country … and Republicans basically just surrendered on the border. We’re doing more in Florida than Congress is. I mean, it’s just pathetic. They basically capitulated entirely on the border. And at this point, you’re not gonna see anything done on the border for the rest of this year. Are we just gonna let in another two million people and do nothing about it? I think it was a real, real failure.”

The Governor is not wrong, nor can I see how it could have been put any better.
