DeSantis Pledges Mandatory Life Sentence for Targeting Children with Fentanyl Resembling Candy
Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is taking unprecedented measures to keep drugs away from our children. During a “Preserving Law & Order in Florida” press conference, DeSantis declared he would ““make it a first-degree felony to possess, sell or manufacture fentanyl or other controlled substances to look like candy.”
The move comes after children around the country have overdosed and in many cases died due to ingesting fentanyl purposely disguised as candy. The focus of the punishment is for targeting that type of fentanyl to children.
Those charged with the felony would face mandatory life sentence and a $1 million fine. DeSantis also pledged to add $20 million of local support funding for law enforcement to stop fentanyl’s illicit spread in his upcoming budget proposals.
“They will jam fentanyl into almost anything nowadays,” DeSantis said. “So they’ll actually do it and make it look like candy, that’s been dubbed ‘rainbow fentanyl” DeSantis explained.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) found 15,000 ‘Rainbow’ Fentanyl pills inside a toy LEGO box in New York City last September.
“This is really targeting our youngest and most vulnerable kids,” DeSantis stated. “This is not something that you can do and maybe you have some side effects but you get over it. The lights can go out with these fentanyl overdoses, and the chance of a fatality is much higher than with many other drugs.”
The Daily Caller writes: The governor referenced Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents at Arizona’s Nogales port of entry seizing more than 250,000 fentanyl pills, many of them multicolored and resembling candy, within two days in August. CBP Area Port Director Michael Humphries had predicted those pills “could be the start of a trend with Transnational Criminal Organizations targeting younger users.”

House proposes Resolution to remove VP Kamala Harris from position as border czar
It has been two entire years since President Joe Biden named his Vice President Kamala Harris as ‘border czar.’ Her responsibilities included heading up solutions for our border crisis. However, House Republicans say her dismal performance should get her fired from the role; a role she seems to care very little about.
“Kamala Harris has done nothing to ‘address the root cause of migration’ or stop the influx of illegal immigrants coming across our border daily. She continues to sit by as the number of illegal immigrants coming across our border skyrockets, fentanyl deaths explode, and CBP officers are left to fend for themselves. She has completely betrayed the American people by blatantly disregarding her duties as Border Czar,” Republican Texas Representative Ronny Jackson told the Daily Caller before introducing his resolution.
On Friday, Jackson reintroduced a resolution which unequivocally calls for Vice President Kamala Harris to be removed from her position as border czar. “Enough is enough! President Biden must remove Kamala Harris and replace her with someone who will put Americans first and stop the crisis at our southern border. Politics should never compromise our national security. We need change now!,” Jackson added.
The resolution begins:
Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Vice President Kamala Harris should be removed from her position as the head of the Biden administration’s strategy to address the root causes of migration.
The resolution concludes:
In February, Jackson also introduced a bill requiring executive branch officials tasked with immigration policy to visit the southern border and issue reports about conditions.
