After being overwhelmed at the southern US border for over a year, Governors of Texas and Arizona began transporting unauthorized immigrants to Democrat-controlled cities that have declared themselves to be sanctuary cities. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis also sent a plane of 50 migrants to Martha’ Vineyard yesterday. These efforts prompted a backlash from Democrat politicians – who say its inhumane and cruel to send people to their states.
State Rep. Dylan Fernandes, D-Falmouth, arrived on the Island Wednesday evening and visited the St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Edgartown, where the refugees are lodging, to assess the situation. “It appears that one if not many Republican governors or operatives chartered flights from the south to come and drop undocumented or documented, I’m not sure, immigrants on Martha’s Vineyard,” he said. “These governors or whoever it is, all they care about is scoring some political points on Tucker Carlson and Fox News and the fact that they are using human lives — women, children, men — as pawns in that and just really abusing these people dropping them off in a place where they don’t know where they are with no food and water just to be able to get in Tucker Carlson and Fox News’s good graces is disgusting. It’s inhumane. These people claim to be Christians? This is about as unchristian a thing as you could be doing. It’s evil.”
Of course, sending people to Massachusetts might, in fact, BE evil.
