Fla. Gov. DeSantis sends undocumented immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard

MARTHA’S VINEYARD — Local leaders say two plane landings here Thursday appear to be carrying Venezuelan nationals sent to Massachusetts by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who claims undocumented immigrants belong in progressive states.

The immigrants thought to be from Venezuela were flown by a chartered aircraft from Florida, Texas, or both, according to local officials.

A spokesperson for DeSantis confirmed to Fox News late Thursday that the people on the plans are whom the governor called “illegal immigrants.”

“Yes, Florida can confirm the two plans 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,” DeSantis’ communications director, Taryn Fenske, told Fox News Digital.

“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,” she told Fox .
