Greg Abbott was supposed to become more like Ron DeSantis – instead, DeSantis is becoming more like Abbott.
This gimmick is so gay.
Abbott invented this as a way to deflect criticism for his total refusal to close the border, now DeSantis is picking up on it to – to what? What the hell is the point of this? If they’re staying in our country then they’re not leaving our country.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two full planes of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday — making good on his promise to ship off illegal immigrants to progressive states.
The migrants got off the planes from Florida and could be seen on the tarmac at Martha’s Vineyard Airport on the small Massachusetts island, Fox News Digital reported.
A spokesperson for the Republican governor confirmed in a statement to the outlet that the flights 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,” said Taryn Fenske, the governor’s communication director.
Florida state legislators appropriated $12 million from the state budget for the Florida Department of Transportation to implement the immigrant relocation program in April.
Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s office said the arrivals at Martha’s Vineyard were provided short-term shelter, Fox reported.
The difference between Abbott and DeSantis is that Abbott could actually close the border.
If Ron DeSantis was actually based, he would be sending these immigrants back to Texas – where they came in from – to mock Abbott for sending them to Northern cities.
I guess Martha’s Vineyard is a funnier destination than DC, New York, or Chicago, since it’s not a big city where they can just be put off on a shelf somewhere, and elites actually live there. But still – this is gay.
There is no reason everyone couldn’t just be sending these people back to Mexico.
