TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – Governor Ron DeSantis responded to President Biden’s reckless decision to remove the radically communist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) from the United States list of foreign terrorist organizations.
For decades, this violent organization perpetuated countless murders, bombings, assassinations, kidnapping and attacks under the guise of “redistributing wealth.”
In response to the Biden Administration’s action, Governor DeSantis issued the following statement:
“President Biden’s decision to remove the FARC from the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations will embolden terrorist groups throughout Latin America, empower narco-traffickers and pave the way for Castro-chavismo in Colombia.
“Biden’s policy is an insult to members of the Colombian American community, many of whom fled that terrorist group’s barbaric attacks on civilians. This is a serious mistake by the Biden administration and will hurt Floridians. With this mind, my office will ascertain what policy measures our state can take to protect our residents from a resurgent FARC and other terrorist Marxist groups.
“My administration stands squarely on the side of the millions of Floridians who want democracy, peace and freedom to endure in Colombia and against Joe Biden’s Castrochavista allies.”
Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez
“There’s no such thing as a peace deal when you negotiate with terrorists,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez.
“Removing the FARC from the U.S. list of foreign terrorist organizations not only undermines America’s interests and allies in the region but appeases despots like Maduro and Diaz-Canel.”
While the Biden Administration caves to the requests of known criminals, the federal government has failed to support the people of Cuba who are protesting the tyrannical communist regime.
