In the headlines, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking measures that support his remarks.
DeSantis has removed illegal immigrants transported to Florida despite his warnings, and is now addressing awakened authorities.
DeSantis has sacked a district attorney whose reinstatement was just denied by a federal court.
The Associated Press reported on Monday that U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle denied to reinstate Andrew Warren as his lawsuit against the Republican governor of Florida proceeds.
The governor suspended state attorney Andrew Warren after he swore not to prosecute abortion patients or the doctors who conduct the unlawful practice.
Warren made the vow in June, just days before a state legislation prohibiting the operation after 15 weeks went into effect, according to the news source.
Following a news conference in which he announced Warren’s suspension, DeSantis told Fox News in Florida exclusive interview, “We had the individual here from Hillsborough County say and signed letters that there are certain laws he just won’t enforce and won’t prosecute.”
It was alleged in August that DeSantis directed law enforcement authorities to remove State Attorney Andrew Warren of the 13th Judicial Circuit, who is supported by George Soros.
“State Attorneys have a duty to prosecute crimes as defined in Florida law, not to pick and choose which laws to enforce based on his personal agenda,” DeSantis said in a statement. “It is my duty to hold Florida’s elected officials to the highest standards for the people of Florida. I have the utmost trust that Judge Susan Lopez will lead the office through this transition and faithfully uphold the rule of law.”

“States attorneys that put their ideology over the rule of law are not satisfying their oath of office,” said DeSantis, himself a Harvard-education lawyer and Yale graduate who served as a judge advocate in the U.S. Navy and an assistant U.S. Attorney. CONTINUE READING…
