In response to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre calling Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ activation of the state’s National Guard to deal with migrants coming ashore a “political stunt,” DeSantis slammed the claim, saying “what we’re doing is working.”

DeSantis made the statement during a Thursday press conference, saying in reference to a question asking for a response to Jean-Pierre, “I think that’s interesting because the Coast Guard actually requested the state’s assistance to handle all these vessels coming.”
