Asm. Evan Low Statement on Introducing Resolution for Investigation of Florida Governor DeSantis’ Illegal Trafficking of Migrants to California

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO—Assemblymember Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley) introduced ACR-113 today calling for a federal investigation and accountability for the criminal nature of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ and Florida’s “Unauthorized Alien Transport Program” actions of transporting 36 migrants to California across state lines under false pretenses on June 2, 2023 and June 5, 2023:

“All morally conscious Americans should be concerned that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his agents – using Florida tax dollars – illegally trafficked vulnerable migrants across state lines,” said Assemblymember Evan Low. “To lie and deceive human beings just trying to survive and support their families in order to transport them unknowingly to California for the purpose of scoring cheap political points is unconscionable, and these inhumane and illegal actions should be swiftly investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Innocent people should not be used as pawns by immoral, power-hungry politicians like DeSantis. I thank the California Department of Justice, California Attorney General Rob Bonta, Governor Gavin Newsom and Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar for their quick action to investigate.”
