On Wednesday afternoon, two planes full of illegal immigrants arrived at Martha’s Vineyard, courtesy of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Martha’s Vineyard is an island in Massachusetts where wealthy Americans, including the Obamas, have multi-million dollar vacation homes.
Last November, DeSantis reported that dozens of migrant flights had landed in Florida per the Biden regime’s instructions. The Governor threatened to send the newly-arrived illegal immigrants to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard.
“It is not the responsibility of Floridians to subsidize aliens to reside in our state unlawfully; we did not consent to Biden’s open-borders agenda,” said DeSantis’ office.
Since then, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been following through on his promises to send busloads of illegal immigrants to Democrat-run cities whose hypocritical Leftist leaders preach that we should let everyone into our country, until the southern states actually ship the immigrants up to their “sanctuary states,” and then they whine and complain about the “unfairness.” Washington D.C., New York City, and Chicago have all received busloads of illegal immigrants.
On Wednesday, the nation was shown that DeSantis followed through on his threats, as planes landed in Martha’s Vineyard.
The governor’s communications director, Taryn Fenske, told Fox News, “Yes, Florida can confirm the two planes with illegal immigrants that arrived in Martha’s Vineyard today were part of the state’s relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations.”
“States like Massachusetts, New York, and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country by incentivizing illegal immigration through their designation as ‘sanctuary states’ and support for the Biden administration’s open border policies,” continued Fenske.
“As you may know, in this past legislative session the Florida legislature appropriated $12 million to implement a program to facilitate the transport of illegal migrants from this state consistent with federal law,” she said.
Jesse Watters addressed the transportation of immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard up on his Fox News segment, Jesse Watters Primetime, joyfully pointing out that the Obamas, Oprah, Beyonce, and more of America’s Left-wing elites have multi-million dollar vacation homes.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined Watters on the show, saying, “You know, these are all sanctuary cities until [the illegal immigrants] are in their sanctuary. I doubt [the residents] will embrace [the immigrants].”

Island officials and emergency management have gathered to deal with the influx of migrants, the majority of whom seem to be from Venezuela.
Dem Senator Julian Cyr (Mass.), obviously took issue with this relocation, accusing the GOP lawmakers of “capitalizing on the difficult circumstances that these families are in and contorting that for the purposes of a ‘gotcha’ moment.”
Meanwhile, the immigrants are in a beautiful, safe location and are being given food and water. It doesn’t sound like they are suffering too much considering the horrible state of their origin country.
