Refugees sent to Martha’s Vineyard

    DeSantis move to fly migrants to Martha’s Vineyard stokes outrage - The Washington Post

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday defended flying migrants from Texas to a Massachusetts resort island unprepared to receive them — a move that was sharply condemned by human rights advocates and Democrats and marked an escalation of GOP efforts to make a political point by sending undocumented immigrants to liberal enclaves.

    Interesting move by DeSantis, if a bit cheeky. Mid-terms are coming soon and the refugee issue has somewhat slipped off the radar owing to the cost of living crisis and the fall out from Roe-v-Wade earlier in the summer. No doubt its a cheeky but clever move to fire up the Republican base ahead of upcoming elections.
