Hakeem Jeffries rips DeSantis and Abbott, saying they need to act like governors and 'stop behaving like human traffickers'

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries on Tuesday slammed Republican governors Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott over their shipping of migrants to liberal areas, saying that the two politicians need to “stop behaving like human traffickers.”

Jeffries told reporters at a press conference that the “behavior” of Florida governor DeSantis and Texas governor Abbot “is radical, reckless, regressive, and reprehensible.”

“They should start behaving like governors and stop behaving like human traffickers,” the New York congressman said. “They are putting politics over people in the most egregious way possible.”
