Just so I know going forward, who are the real Christians in this situation? Is it Ron Defascist, the guy wasting tax payer money on a performative political stunt, or is it the people who treated immigrants like human beings? Who is the most Christ like in this situation?

Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida took credit for sending planeloads of migrants to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, as part of an apparent bid to force authorities in another state to take responsibility for them.

State Sen. Julian Cyr of Massachusetts told The New York Times that around 50 migrants arrived in two planes about 3 p.m. local time, with no warning.

Fox News Digital, which first reported the story, published a video of migrants disembarking from planes on the island and getting into a van.

"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," Taryn Fenske, the communications director for DeSantis, told the outlet.

 

State Rep. Dylan Fernandes on Twitter said the community rallied to help the migrants, putting them up in a local church. 

"Our island jumped into action putting together 50 beds, giving everyone a good meal, providing a play area for the children, making sure people have the healthcare and support they need. We are a community that comes together to support immigrants," he wrote on Twitter.

He also shared photos of the makeshift accommodation.

Cyr, speaking with the Martha's Vineyard Times, criticized the move as a cruel political stunt. On Twitter, he said the migrants had arrived on a charter flight from Texas and appeared to be mostly from Venezuela. 

 

"This is deeply disgusting. This is a cruel ruse that manipulates families that are seeking a better life," he said, describing them as "fundamentally racist tactics."

In recent weeks, the Republican-led states of Texas and Arizona have sent thousands of migrants to Democratic-led areas, including New York, Chicago, and Washington, DC.

They say President Joe Biden's policies are behind a rise in unauthorized migration and that Democratic-led cities should bear the responsibility for them. Some of the areas migrants have been sent to voted to become "sanctuary cities," places where authorities deliberately do not cooperate with efforts to enforce migration laws.

 

Martha's Vineyard is an agricultural area and exclusive vacation destination where former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, as well as Hillary Clinton, frequently spend time. In the offseason, it has about 20,000 residents, and locals told The New York Times there were concerns about the town's long-term ability to host the migrants. 

Christina Pushaw, a spokesperson for DeSantis, used the situation to troll liberals.

"Martha's Vineyard residents should be thrilled about this. They vote for sanctuary cities — they get a sanctuary city of their own," she tweeted. "And illegal aliens will increase the town's diversity, which is strength. Right?" 

 

DeSantis is burnishing his anti-migration credentials amid rumors he's positioning himself for a presidential bid in 2024.

Is it a stunt? Or is it helping distribute migrants across the country to the states that have said they welcome migrants and are fine with the border policy under this administration?

Why should red states that are being flooded with immigrants have to bear the entire burden on their cities and towns?

Why should blue states have to bear the burden of funding red states?

Awesome. Send some more . When they find drug traffickers  send them too. I think every illegal should be sent to liberal states.

Send the ones who came in legally to conservative states. 

Who is acting more christ like in this situation? desantis or the liberals?

There's the law of the land and and there's God's laws. You're too stupid know the difference. In case you haven't noticed even God has His rules we have to follow or we don't enter His kingdom DUH! 

Did you take in an immigrant family yet? 

I think you should take in the violent ones since you're so virtuous 

Desantis has to protect his constituents and abide by the laws of the land.

That's not how real Christians interpret the bible.

So tired of border crossers being used as a political point when the number coming across is barely different than it ever was. Of course in the past it was OK because no one gave a damn - until it became a political dog whistle

“There he goes. One of God's own prototypes.

A high-powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production.

Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

This is great. It creates more of an incentive for immigrants to come to red border states because they know they can be shipped to wealthier blue states. There they can get better assistance programs, education, vocational skills, and employment opportunities. It gets them paying taxes and contributing to society. Looks like Florida lost money on a publicity stunt.

God bless  conscientious Americans, like Governor Abbott, for bringing this humanitarian crisis to light.  Marie Antoinette 'Liberals' like to virtue signal but have no consideration for the people they are importing to swell Democratic voter ranks.   They also use these people to provide cheap labor subsidized by working Americans).  It's nice that middle class Americans can help pay for the health care of Nancy Pelosi's house servants.   This will save lives; would that the original poster actually gave a shot about that.
