Appearing on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced he plans to offer $5,000 signing bonuses to any law enforcement officers who relocate to Florida.
The proposal comes as law enforcement personnel across the country are fighting back against vaccine mandates imposed by liberal leadership. DeSantis says his offer is good for all officers, vaccinated or unvaccinated.
“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement. We do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida” said DeSantis.
“NYPD [New York], Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result” he added. “Nobody should lose their job based off these injections. It’s a choice you can make, but we want to make sure we’re protecting your jobs and your livelihood.”
DeSantis confirmed his position on Monday saying, “we are looking to capitalize off a lot of communities across our country who have turned their back on law enforcement, who aren’t providing them the support.”
Last week DeSantis made headlines after he posted a graphic to his Twitter account playing off the “Don’t Tread On Me” Gadsden flag, with an alligator instead of a timber rattlesnake, and the words “DON’T TREAD ON FLORIDA.” DeSantis’ signature was underneath the phrase.
Over a third of Chicago’s roughly 13,000-member police force has defied the vaccine mandates by not reporting their vaccination status in the government’s database. The Massachusetts state’s police union estimated at least 150 officers will resign over the mandate. The New York City Police Benevolent Association has filed a lawsuit due to the mandates.
Patrick Yoes, president of the National Fraternal Order of Police wrote in a letter to officers, “as an organization that prides itself on protecting the freedoms afforded to us by the U.S. Constitution, we are vehemently opposed to any suggestion of a vaccine mandate from any organization, employer or government agency. “

Human Infection of H3N8 Bird Flu Reported in China
Will it ever end? On Tuesday this week China’s health authority recorded its first human infection of the H3N8 strain of avian influenza. The variant was identified in a 4-year-old boy from Henan province.
According to a statement from the National Health Commission (NHC) the child raises chickens and crows in his home city of Zhumadian. On April 5 he showed fever and other symptoms, then was admitted to a medical institution five days later for treatment.
The statement indicated while it has been found in horses, dogs, birds and seals around the world, no human cases have ever been reported. Fox News reports the commission “warned the public to avoid contact with sick and dead poultry, as well as live poultry, and pay attention to hygiene.”
In March, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses had been detected in 13 states among commercial and backyard poultry, as well as in wild birds of 14 states.
Fortunately, the agency said H5N1 bird flu poses a low risk to the public.
