This week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis transported 48 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Barack Obama owns a home.
Liberals predictably freaked out, with California Governor Gavin Newsom urging the Department of Justice to criminally prosecute him.
President Biden said that he was looking in to options to sue Governors like DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott for transporting illegal immigrants to other states.
Liberals in Martha’s Vineyard, which voted 80% for Biden, seemed determined to show that they were more generous than their Republican counterparts, offering the migrants food and shelter.
The generosity didn’t last long, however, as the migrants were shipped to a military base, Joint Base Cape Cod, less than 48 hours after their arrival.
In videos posted to Twitter on Friday morning, charter buses were lining up to ‘deport’ the migrants to the military base.

The roughly 50 migrants who were sent by plane to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts by Florida’s governor this week were transported to a military base Friday to receive shelter and humanitarian support, officials said.
The migrants willingly boarded buses Friday morning — arranged by state and local government — that took them from Martha’s Vineyard to Joint Base Cape Cod, officials said.
The migrants had been flown to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — part of a series of moves by Republican governors to transport migrants to liberal enclaves to protest what they say are inadequate federal efforts on southern border security. Martha’s Vineyard had not been expecting the group, and DeSantis’ move was sharply denounced by the White House, migrants’ advocates and Democratic officials.
At a church where they had been staying on Martha’s Vineyard, migrants cheered Friday morning when they heard the Massachusetts government would shelter them at the Cape Cod military base, and embraced each other and locals before boarding the buses.
