This week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) issued a scathing critique of The New York Times after he was once again vindicated in his assertions regarding the entry of terrorists into the United States through the southern border, which he made in late 2018.

Eight ISIS terrorist suspects were apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel in New York City, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia over the weekend after they illegally entered the United States.

Last autumn, during one of the Republican presidential primary debates, DeSantis issued a warning regarding the danger that Biden’s open border policies pose to national security.

During a Fox News segment this week, DeSantis addressed the news story.

“I said this last fall that — and it wasn’t even just me spitballing, Biden’s own DHS has acknowledged there were hundreds of people on the terror watch list,” he said. “You can’t have 10 million people come and not have potential terrorists come across the border, especially when we have people from the Middle East.” DeSantis said.

“So now we know without a shadow of a doubt that we have ISIS folks who have been identified and apprehended. The New York Times was wrong. The New York Times was putting forth a narrative, they were running interference for Joe Biden. What I said was correct at the time, and it remains correct today, but I am not gonna hold my breath asking for an apology. I think a lot of these corporate media outlets, it’s drive-by journalism. They say what they want, and then they just forget about when it’s obvious they were wrong.” he continued.
