(Slay News) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis followed through on his promise to send migrants to sanctuary cities and progressive states by sending two planes full of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday.
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.
“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 immigrants from this state consistent with federal law,” she said.
DeSantis earlier promised 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,” his office said at the time.
