Deep Dive (May 6): Florida Funds Police: Gov. DeSantis Pledges $1,000 Bonuses

The illegal aliens who manage to evade Border Patrol are known as the “gotaways.” Customs and Border Patrol officials are facing tens of thousands of gotaways—over 42,000 who escaped. In April, Border Patrol apprehended over 170,000 illegal immigrants. While it might seem like a big number, many consider it a conservative amount, believing many more have slipped through undetected.

While calls for defunding the police have been ringing across parts of the country, Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis is taking a different approach: funding the police. He announced Wednesday a plan to give first responders in Florida a $1000 bonus.
