Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flies nearly 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, causing uproar in eclectic enclave
Martha’s Vineyard was facing nearly 50 migrants sent by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, one group called it a “humanitarian crisis” – even though that dwarfs the number of people arriving in border cities and towns on a daily basis.
“For our island community, here’s an update [the] The current humanitarian crisis at Martha’s Vineyard …. We thank the people for their continued help,” Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce tweeted.
Fox News Digital was the first to report Wednesday that DeSantis’ office had sent two planes to Martha’s Vineyard Airport in Massachusetts. The move comes after border states such as Texas and Arizona settled migrants in Washington DC, New York City and Chicago.
“We take very seriously what is happening on the southern border,” DeSantis said in Thursday’s speech, unlike the president of the United States, who refused to lift a finger to secure that border. Is.

DeSantis noted that the numbers being sent to sanctuary cities and jurisdictions were only a fraction of those being met at the border.
“The moment even a tiny fraction of those border townsfolk are brought to their front door every day, they go berserk, and they are so upset that this is happening. And it just shows you that theirs. Virtue-sign is a fraud,” he said.
About 50 migrants were deported to a summer destination popular for America’s liberal elite, and that number dwarfs the enormous migrant numbers faced by towns, cities and Border Patrol agents on the southern border.
There have been over two million migrant encounters so far in this financial year alone, on top of over 1.7 million encounters in FY 2021. While many of them have been returned through a Title 42 public health order or other means, a significant number have been released in the US to await their asylum hearings – which can take up to eight years.
So far this fiscal year, more than 500,000 migrants have been released or paroleed in the US by the Border Patrol with a court date on their identity (called a Notice to Appear) on their identity, according to CBP data. and is enrolled in the option of Detention (ATD). That figure does not include the last two months of FY22.
The New York Times recently reported, citing internal DHS documents and court filings, that more than a million illegal immigrants have been released in the US for asylum trials since President Biden took office. This number will continue to grow in the coming months and years.

That figure also does not include the number of illegal aliens who have overtaken the Border Patrol. Sources put the number of known Goaes in this fiscal year at more than 500,000, on top of the nearly 400,000 known GoWs, which DHS Secretary Alejandro Meyerkas previously testified were all in FY 2011.
Border towns will often face these numbers as migrants arrive in large groups. Fox News reported on Wednesday that 50 migrants were flying to Martha’s Vineyard on the same day that several hundred migrants had gathered under a bridge in El Paso, Texas. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told Fox it is releasing migrants near El Paso shelters and bus stations because they are over capacity. The mayor of El Paso told Fox News last week it was seeing between 1,000 and 1,400 migrants a day.
There are an average of 1,500-2,000 illegal crossings every day in the Del Rio sector alone. At Eagle Pass, which is included in the Del Rio sector, a large group of over 200 migrants, mostly single adults, crossed into the US. The Del Rio sector saw 3,300 illegal crossings and more than 733 “getaways” in the past weekend alone.
As liberal jurisdictions — including Washington DC, New York City and Chicago — smoke about migrants being sent to their cities, border sheriffs and officials previously told Fox News Digital that the numbers were nothing compared to what they had seen. are not.
McAllen Mayor Javier Villalobos told Fox News last month that “the city of McAllen was able to deal with thousands of immigrants a day … I think they can handle a few hundred.” Villalobos said McLane sees about 100 crossings a day.
“They haven’t seen anything,” Goliad County, Texas, Sheriff Roy Boyd told Fox News Digital last week.
Meanwhile, sheriff groups have shed light on how their sheriffs have been dealing with months of booms that eclipse those who are being deported to wealthy liberal areas.
“They are overwhelmed,” Jonathan Thompson, executive director and CEO of the National Sheriffs Association, told Fox News Digital last week. “They’re trying to bring in the dead bodies and remains of illegal aliens they found in the desert. They’re overwhelmed in their communities with a lack of human services. They’re overwhelmed by the crime response. And they’re just overwhelmed with people. The enormity of things that happen to help care.”
