Mandate Wars: DeSantis Offers $5,000 To Officers In Blue States To Relocate
Governor Ron DeSantis just made officers affected by Vaccine mandates an offer they can't refuse. DeSantis is offering a $5,000 sign-on bonus to officers facing disciplinary actions in other states for refusing to get vaccinated. He said as much during an interview on Fox News where he also blasted the Biden administration for threatening the US economy with those same mandates.
"What Biden’s doing is unconstitutional. He does not have the authority to do this," DeSantis told host Maria Bartiromo.
DeSantis explained what the vaccine mandates will do on a "practical level."
"In addition to be taking away people’s personal choices, it will wreak havoc in the economy because even if a small percentage of these folks end up losing their jobs or voluntarily walking away, you’re going to have huge disruptions in medical, in logistics, in law enforcement," DeSantis said.
"So in Florida, our policy’s very clear," he continued, "we’re going to have a special session and we’re going to say nobody should lose their job based off these injections."
DeSantis stressed that getting the vaccine is "a choice you can make, but we want to make sure we’re protecting your jobs and your livelihoods."
On Thursday, DeSantis called on the Florida legislature to hold a special session with the aim of banning vaccine mandates in his state.
"At the end of the day, you shouldn’t be discriminated against based on your health decisions," he said during a news conference on Thursday. "We want to provide protection for people, we want to make it clear that, in Florida, your right to earn a living is not contingent upon whatever choices you’re making in terms of these injections."
DeSantis says he isn't just standing by idle while Democrats work to destabilize the nation but that he is "actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement" who risk losing their jobs unless they get the vaccine.
"In Florida, not only are we going to want to protect the law enforcement and all the jobs, we’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement because we do have needs in our police and our sheriffs’ departments," DeSantis told Bartiromo.
"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," he said.
On Sunday, DeSantis had a message for members of law enforcement: "If you’re not being treated well, we’ll treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we’ll compensate you as a result."
Chicago's mayor Lori Lightfoot's deadline for officers to get vaccinated ended Friday. Officers found not in 'compliance' are expected to go on unpaid leave until they comply or face being fired.
Chicago officers have already faced the 'defund' crowd and now those who remain must face tyrannical mandates. That's in addition to politically-fed hate from the extreme left in their city.
If you ask me, I would much rather live in Florida than Chicago. For one I hate the lawlessness and high taxation. But mainly, I just personally hate the cold. This sounds like a good deal to me. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
