DeSantis Announces Big Offer for Out-of-State Police Officers Suffering Under Vaccine Mandates and Other Mistreatment

Share

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he wants his state to actively recruit police officers who have been forced out of their jobs elsewhere due to COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

During an interview Sunday on the Fox News show “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, he said Florida is planning a special legislative session to push back against vaccine mandates.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement because 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,” DeSantis stated.

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, 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.”

DeSantis noted that many first responders previously had COVID-19 and recovered, “so they have strong protection.”

Has vaccination mania gone too far?

“And so I think that influences their decision on a lot of this, that they have already had it and recovered. And so they’re making no accommodations for that. They’re still pretending like that doesn’t even exist. And so that’s really, really troubling when you see that.”

DeSantis said that he will not submit quietly to President Joe Biden’s policy of vaccine mandates.

“What Biden’s doing is unconstitutional. He does not have the authority to do this,” DeSantis explained.

“In addition to 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,” he continued.

“So in Florida, our policy’s very clear. We’re going to have a special session, and we’re going to say ‘nobody should lose their job based off these injections,’” he said.

In calling the special legislative session, DeSantis said freedom is on the line.

“Your right to earn a living should not be contingent upon COVID shots,” he said in a release on his website. “When the vaccines first came out, we worked very hard to provide it, particularly to our elderly, but we said from day one: we will make it available for all, but we will mandate it on none because ultimately we want individuals to make the determinations about what is right for them.”

“I want a state in which people are able to maintain their livelihoods, earn a living, and provide for their families. And if the federal government or big corporations are hurting people, then we have a responsibility to step up and lead.”
