Democrats and far-left activists are freaking out after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) flew two planes filled with illegal aliens, mostly men from Venezuela, to Martha’s Vineyard — the small, elite East Coast vacation spot where former President Obama owns an $11.75 million home.
On Wednesday evening, DeSantis announced that he had sent two planes full of Venezuelan illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard. The move comes as Texas and Arizona have sent thousands of border crossers on migrant buses to Washington, DC, New York City, and Chicago over the last few months.
The plans are set to save the states billions in costs.
For the Republican governors, the goal of the migrant bus and illegal alien flight operations is to expose “sanctuary city” hypocrisy where Democrats approve policies shielding illegal aliens from arrest and deportation while also pushing the burden of illegal immigration onto more vulnerable states like Arizona, Florida, and Texas.
In response, Democrats and far-left activists are condemning DeSantis’s flights of illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard.
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) claimed the flights are equivalent to human trafficking, while a local elected official called the flights “evil and inhumane.”
