(CNN)Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is claiming credit for sending two planes carrying migrants to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts Wednesday, according to a statement emailed to CNN by his office.

"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," the statement said.

"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."





An estimated 50 migrants arrived on Martha's Vineyard Wednesday on two planes, according to Massachusetts state Sen. Julian Cyr, a Democrat who represents Martha's Vineyard. The two planes arrived just after 3 p.m., Cyr said, and white vans took the migrants to Martha's Vineyard Community Services.

"There was no advance notice to anyone in Martha's Vineyard or Massachusetts that these migrants were arriving to my knowledge," Cyr said.

"The island scrambled to respond," he added. "They essentially set up shelters, the equivalent of a hurricane or Nor'easter. They set that up in a matter of hours and these families received a meal. They were Covid tested and are spending the night in shelters at several churches on the island."

Municipal officials and state officials are in touch about next steps, but Cyr stressed that the focus right now is supporting the migrants who arrived.

Yeah... it's like... can they do that? Florida just decides to fly a plane of people up to another state and ditches them there? Nothing in the rule book on that one?
Every time Texas/Florida send a $12M airplane full of immigrants to a sanctuary city, they need to forfeit funds provided to them for dealing with these people and Abbott/DeSantis need to personally hand it to whichever corresponding Governor, on camera.

Of course you do. You are part of the cult who doesn't care if your tax dollars are spent on a publicity stunt as long as the Libs are being pwned.
The federal Governments lack of border policy enforcement creates havoc for Texas and Arizona. 200,000 people a month entering the USA. The northern states don’t give to shits about the burden it puts on the States. The governors send buses of the folks that just came illegally into the country and ships them to cities that have openly embraced illegal immigrants and grant them a sanctuary place. The result is that the mayors of those cities say it is horrible for them to send them.

Twitter commentary from the Blue checks are hilarious right now. I’m hoping that these drop offs of immigrants will finally open the eyes of the politicians who have openly welcomed people to their cities but have not shown concern for the border states that deal with the issue on a daily basis.

Think about this for a second. Most of these folks just walked across Mexico from South America. Brutal heat, violence, the chance of getting raped is very high. After their long journey they arrive in Texas. Most of them are released into Texas and no one knows what happens to them.

A select few are flown on a jet to Martha’s Vineyard, in the fall, and liberals are losing their shit. Seriously folks?

Texas and Florida are up there on imprisonment rates, perhaps other states should fly plane loads of prisoners to those states?

Looks like the people of Martha's Vineyard are more Christian than the faux Christians in Florida.

You don't like illegal immigration, so your solution is to send them where they can have sanctuary? How does that make any sense?

The only thing at all surprising is that it's taken so long for Desanis to do this. It's right up his alley - a political stunt that will not accomplish anything. He's a tremendous politician, and a poor to mediocre governor.

It might get some attention finally if they keep sending them to Martha's Vineyard. Any update on Kamala's plans since she was asked to head up the border situation? Also hopefully Biden's wall will be finished ASAP. We need to beef up and give more leeway to border patrol to use any means necessary to get the influx under control.

Do you only care about tax dollars when it's a state that is coordinating the flights?

Why would we need another wall when Trump’s border wall was completed and paid for by Mexico?

Why? First, no heads up? Second, if your goal is less immigration, why go out of your way to relocate these people deeper into the United States. It's a spite move and you know it.
None of the states up North feel the pain that the border states are feeling. Thousands of people a day arriving. No heads up for Texas or Arizona either.

These mayors didn’t give a crap for what Texas is dealing with….now they feel a little irritation as well.

So the flight originated in Texas. He is such a prick. Using these people as political pawns and red meat to this demented base. Pathetic and sick.
