About this Episode

Gov. Ron DeSantis returned from his trip to Texas, where he met Florida officers sent to patrol the Mexican border.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— As the Governor was helping fuel the culture war out West, COVID-19 was doing a number back home. We set a new low last week in the number of vaccinations. So many Americans are refusing to get vaccinated, the U.S. Surgeon General says misinformation has become a threat to public health.

— Florida had more than 45,000 new cases over the past week, which was responsible for more than 20% of all the new cases in America.

— A setback for the Governor's plan to ban vaccine passports on cruise ships sailing from Florida. A federal appeals court overturned a lower-court ruling that said the CDC overstepped its bounds regulating the cruise industry.

— Unemployment was up slightly in June … it was the third month in a row where the rate ticked up by one-tenth of one percent. But there was also a significant increase in the labor force.

— Florida added more than 80,000 new jobs last month. That's good news, regardless of the higher unemployment rate.

— And finally, two Florida Men: One broke into an airport and tried to hide in a Coast Guard plane; the other doused a store full of people with anti-bear bear spray to make his escape with some stolen candles.
