Organized shoplifting getting Tallahassee’s attention

A trend to watch is this year’s state legislative session, which is shaping up to focus on problems related to the army of illegal immigrants flowing across the country’s borders. Yesterday, Governor DeSantis held a presser discussing legislative package ostensibly targeting retail theft, but the giveaway is its focused particularly on organized gangs of shoplifters.

In the clip, DeSantis explained, “You need to make sure that prosecutors do their job — and we’ve shown we’ve been willing to suspend prosecutors when they haven’t enforced the law, but part of it is to make sure that the penalties are severe enough to deter people from doing this.”

In what seems like a purely organic movement, the Red States seem to be starting to pass laws that will make it very difficult for bad-acting illegals to stay here. Which means the hardest criminals will have a field day in the Alice-in-Wonderland Blue States, where laws protect lawlessness.

U-Haul may have another couple of great years, as citizens flee Blue-State hellholes.
