Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers who are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. We fact-check the fact-checkers and let you know their bias. When appropriate, we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

Claim by Ron DeSantis (R): Six million or 7 million people have “come illegally under Biden.”

PolitiFact rating: Mostly False (During Joe Biden’s presidency, U.S. immigration authorities have encountered migrants about 7.2 million times at and between ports of entry. But that figure doesn’t show how many migrants entered and remained in the country. The encounter data also does not reflect expulsions. From February 2021 to May 2023, there were about 2.5 million expulsions under Title 42, a COVID-19 pandemic-era policy that allowed officials to quickly expel migrants.)
