After Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) dispatched two planeloads of undocumented immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, a Massachusetts island where affluent liberals like former President Barack Obama reside, conservatives applauded.
In a statement, a representative of DeSantis’ office said, “Yes, Florida can verify the two airplanes carrying illegal immigrants that landed in Martha’s Vineyard today were part of the state’s relocating program to transport illegal aliens to sanctuary area states like Massachusetts, New York, and California, by encouraging illegal immigration through their classification as “sanctuary states” and support for the Biden Admin’s open border policy, would better enable the care of these people who they have encouraged into our nation.”
As you may be aware, the Florida Legislature appropriated $12 million during the most recent legislative session to develop a program to enable the transport of illegal aliens from this state in accordance with federal law, the official added.
Dana Loesch, a radio host, tweeted that “wealthy Martha’s Vineyard now has to pay their fair part of what impoverished border communities have been compelled to cope with for YEARS due to Dems policy of open borders. Dems preach about sanctuary but act parsimonious and condescending toward illegal immigrants who enter their communities.”
“I fully anticipate that all of the wealthy progressives would welcome freshly incoming illegal immigrants into their Martha’s Vineyard estates. I’m confident they’ll do their fair share and spare the poor border communities, because “Sanctuary” is dead without action, she said. They’re racists if they don’t,” he said.
“I’m very delighted to learn that DeSantis is sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard,” tweeted Joel Berry, editorial director of the Babylon Bee. “There are supposedly the richest and most moral liberals on planet who reside there. They must be overjoyed to have such diversity in their neighborhood.”
“Every GOP governor struggling with the border situation has to start sending planes of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard and the Hamptons,” tweeted the well-known conservative account Comfortably Smug.
Sunny McSunnyface, a well-known right-leaning account, responded to a Left-wing activist who claimed that the neighborhood lacked the resources to handle the flood of migrants. The account tweeted, “Oh does it suck to have local resources overrun by migrants turning up uninvited. It seems like the time has come to put an end to racism and begin construction.”
“Biden busing migrants to arbitrary cities in Tx and Md was… loving? But flying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard is ‘brutal,’ right?” Allie Beth Stuckey, a Gop political analyst, tweeted. “To use these folks as political pawns is cruel. Lol. As usual, the projection is absurd. I do feel horrible for the kids involved in this. Another reason to protect the border so that we can completely avoid this.”
