Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is now reportedly being sued by a former top officer in the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for “wrongful termination.”

Shane Desguin, who was FDLE’s chief of staff until he was reportedly forced to retire, filed the lawsuit against DeSantis and the FDLE overnight.

According to the lawsuit, problems began in late 2021, and he was formally notified by his agency last year.

According to the lawsuit, he was fired after refusing to obey directives he deemed illegal or inappropriate.

DeSantis has attempted to crack down on illegal immigration in Florida, since the number of unlawful migrant crossings has increased dramatically in recent years.

“As these requests escalated, [Desguin] objected, and emphasized, on multiple occasions…FDLE could not legally conduct name checks, capture photographs, or compile intelligence files without a criminal predicate or reasonable suspicion, as those actions would be unlawful.” the lawsuit reads.

DeSantis’s Press Secretary responded to the accusations on Twitter.
