Martha's Vineyard illegal immigrants sent to military base by Mass. Gov.
A military base in Cape Cod has been designated for dozens of illegal immigrants transported to Martha's Vineyard by the Massachusetts governor's office. A few members of the National Guard have also been activated.
Several buses are seen transporting illegal aliens - mostly Venezuelans - from the St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Martha's Vineyard, a popular Massachusetts island with rich and powerful Democrats.
As part of the state's response, Gov. Charlie Baker's office said that 125 members of the National Guard will be mobilized and that the Joint Base Cape Cod will house families and individuals during the crisis.
“We are grateful to the providers, volunteers, and local officials that stepped up on Martha’s Vineyard over the past few days to provide immediate services to these individuals,” Baker said in a statement. “Our administration has been working across state government to develop a plan to ensure these individuals will have access to the services they need going forward, and Joint Base Cape Cod is well equipped to serve these needs.”
Left-wing commentators and pundits on social media were furious over the move by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom urged the Department of Justice to investigate DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on human trafficking allegations.
According to DeSantis, the Biden administration has failed to secure the border, while Abbott argued that certain cities, such as New York City, Chicago, and Washington D.C, are appropriate places for illegal immigrants since they are considered sanctuary cities. As a result of the Martha's Vineyard deployment, fewer Democrats mentioned the escalating crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border or the policies of the White House on immigration.
