Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., has joined other conservative leaders in flipping the script on Democrats by sending two planes of undocumented migrants into Martha’s Vineyard.
Fox News reported that DeSantis, famous for his no-holds-barred approach to dueling with the Biden administration’s radical policies, packed two planes full of illegal immigrants and whisked them to the exclusive Massachusetts area, near where the Obamas reside.
The strategy to send migrants who have crossed Joe Biden’s catastrophically unsecured border into elite Democrat-run areas of the U.S. has been one very public way that conservative leaders have been fighting the influx of migrant arrivals this year.
In early September, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) sent a group of illegal migrants to Chicago by bus. “Migrants are flooding into our state at a historic rate, thanks to Pres. Biden’s open border policies,” Abbott stated on Twitter. “Texas will continue busing migrants until the President secures the border.”
Per RSBN, Abbott joined Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) in the stunt, which has served as a lightning rod for the conversation surrounding the topic of America’s border security.
According to Fox News, DeSantis’s communications director, Taryn Fenske, confirmed to the outlet that the migrants’ arrival in Martha’s Vineyard was “a part of the state’s relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations.”
According to Fenske’s comments made to Fox, blue states like California and Massachusetts would “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.”
Gov. DeSantis is facing off against Democrat opponent Charlie Crist in his bid for reelection as Florida’s governor. As previously reported by RSBN, DeSantis has been hitting the airwaves with a series of powerful campaign ads highlighting his administration’s Florida-first policies throughout the Covid pandemic and beyond.
