MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Thursday called on Hispanic people in Florida to vote against Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who launched his 2024 White House bid the day before, because of his immigration policies.

“Hopefully Hispanics in Florida will wake up and not give him one single vote, to not vote for those who persecute migrants, those who don’t respect migrants,” López Obrador said.

Speaking at his daily hours-long press conference, López Obrador addressed DeSantis’s political future, saying the governor had “uncovered” himself, using Mexican political slang for a candidate’s announcement, and taking credit for predicting DeSantis’s presidential run.

“As you can see I wasn’t wrong that all his politicking over migrants was because he wanted to be the Republican Party’s candidate,” the Mexican president declared.

López Obrador also lashed out at Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, along with DeSantis, for wanting to secure the border, and claimed that the “migration” was “necessary.”

The Hill quotes López Obrador as saying:

“We have to be thinking about this regrettable phenomenon of necessary migration, used with political ends in the United States,… The governor of Texas, campaigning, [saying] he will militarize the border and that he will continue building [the] wall; and the governor of Florida, the same, because he wants to be the Republican Party candidate and he’s politicking.”

Mexican reporter Joaquín López-Dóriga shared a video of Obrador’s remarks, and tweeted, “President López Obrador called on the Hispanic community not to vote for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who ran for president. He warned that he will continue to report on those who seek the presidency of the United States and attack migrants.”

This is not the first time Obrador has attacked DeSantis. On May 8, he slammed the Florida governor, telling a Mexican audience, “I found out that the Florida governor — imagine, Florida, which is full of migrants! — is taking repressive, inhumane measures against [illegal] migrants in Florida because he wants to be a [presidential] candidate.”

DeSantis fired back with this statement: “President López Obrador should be cracking down on the cartels running his country and fueling our deadly opioid epidemic instead of worrying about what we are doing in Florida. While President Biden may take his cues from leftist foreign leaders, Floridians won’t let their immigration laws be dictated by Mexico City. I’ll never back down from using the full weight of my office to protect the people of Florida by enforcing our immigration laws, and look forward to signing the strongest legislation against illegal immigration in Florida history.”

  1. What a bone head. Legal immigrants are against this slew of illegals. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if he was on the cartels payroll.

  2. If I or any American “ immigrated “ to Mexico as his assholes are doing in America they would be shot or imprisoned. Screw him

  3. The president of Mexico is speaking on behalf of the cartels. We have a crisis and invasion. Another corrupt SOB.

  4. Funny they flee the hell hole Mexico for Texas and Florida. Shut your lame azz spic trap. NOBODY is jumping the border to get to Mexico to stay. 3rd world dive.

  5. The Mexico president is a dumb asshole and we don’t want the illegals to come into our country USA. I want to remind the Mexico president that if we want to go to his country we need a passport so the president of Mexico needs to keep the illegals and I bet he is getting well paid to let his illegals into USA. Also he is with the cartels and we are going to finish the wall and fuck the Mexico President. Is he afraid of the cartels that they might kill him if the illegals cannot come into our country. We here in the USA we take are of our people so they can be save from all the drugs that come into our country with the cartel people. Fuckthecartels and the president

  6. Here’s a better solution, build the wall and stop all trade with Mexico until they enforce the laws against the Cartels

  7. He is speaking on behalf of the cartels since he lives off of what he majes from them! He needs to just shut up and worry about Mexico and not the USA! I am Hispanic and I am against illegal immigration, so there!

  8. How ironic. The Mex President mad that a Governor over here isn’t allowing His people free access over here!!!! That doesn’t even make sense!!!! He fed work for the cartel- that is the only rationale conclusion.
