During a press conference on Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis lambasted critics over the migrant flight to Martha’s Vineyard.
“When Biden is flying these people all over the fruited plain in the middle of the night, I didn’t hear a peep out of those people,” said DeSantis. “Okay, I didn’t hear a peep.”
“I haven’t heard a peep about all the people that have been told by Biden, you can just come in and they’re going. They’re being abused by the cartels. They’re drowning in the Rio Grande. You had 50 people that died in some shed in Texas. I heard no outrage about any of that,” said DeSantis.
“I haven’t heard outrage about all the Fentanyl that’s come across the border, that’s killing Americans in record numbers. I don’t hear outrage about the criminal aliens that have gotten through and have then victimized people not only in Florida but all throughout the country, I didn’t hear any outrage about that,” said DeSantis.
“The only thing I hear them getting upset about, is you have 50 (migrants) that end up in Martha’s Vineyard. Then they get really upset. I’m sorry, those migrants were being treated horribly by Biden. They were hungry and homeless, they had no opportunity at all and in the state of Florida, it was volunteer-offered transport to sanctuary jurisdictions,” said DeSantis.
“This was intentional policy, to reverse policies that were effective and you want to talk about that sending a bus from Texas, is a stunt? The biggest stunt was Biden coming in as President and reversing Trump’s policies just so he could virtue signal that he was against Trump. It didn’t matter that the policy worked, and he had to be anti-Trump and so that’s why he did it,” said DeSantis.
On Tuesday, the plane DeSantis sent to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, is heading to an area of Delaware near President Joe Biden’s home, according to a flight tracker.
The flight with the designation of J328 originated in San Antonio, Texas, and will land in Crestview Bob Sikes Airport before departing after about an hour to Georgetown Delaware Coastal Airport, according to Flightradar24.
The airport is less than 20 miles from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where Biden’s home is located.
The plane is scheduled to depart Delaware Coastal Airport for Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, later Tuesday, according to the flight tracker.
It’s unclear whether the plane contains illegal migrants.
