DeSantis Staff: Thousands More Migrants Could Be Headed to Martha’s Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard residents might expect “a few thousand more” migrants like the 50 who showed up unexpectedly Wednesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ staff said Thursday, though it was unclear if that was a promise or mere Twitter arguing.

Should Republican governors flood liberal cities with illegals?

Two planes filled with mostly Venezuelans arrived from Texas on Wednesday with less than an hour’s notice at the vacation spot for the wealthy just off the Massachusetts coast.

DeSantis took credit for the flights, saying they were part of the state’s efforts to move migrants to liberal “sanctuary” areas that have said they welcome the influx of immigrants into the country. Republican governors of Texas and Arizona have done the same, sending busloads of immigrants to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago.

We are a community & nation that is stronger because of immigrants. The community coming together with water, food, interpretation help, & resources to support these families represent the best of America.

“Our island jumped into action putting together 50 beds, giving everyone a good meal, providing a play area for the children, making sure people have the healthcare and support they need,” he said. “We are a community that comes together to support immigrants.”
