Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ office is wasting time responding to the crazy class action lawsuit being filed against his office on behalf of the migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard.
The suit was initiated by immigration lawyers and activists accusing DeSantis of breaking the law for his own financial gain. There has also been references to human trafficking.
But the lawyers for DeSantis are armed and ready even with signed consent forms from the migrants.
The lawsuit claims the flights were “a premeditated, fraudulent, and illegal scheme centered on exploiting [the migrants] for the sole purpose of advancing their own personal, financial and political interests.”
DeSantis office responded, ”It is opportunistic that activists would use illegal immigrants for political theater. If these activists spent even a fraction of this time and effort at the border, perhaps some accountability would be brought to the Biden Administration’s reckless border policies that entice illegal immigrants to make dangerous and often lethal journeys through Central America and put their lives in the hands of cartels and Coyotes.”
“The transportation of the immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard was done on a voluntary basis. The immigrants were homeless, hungry, and abandoned – and these activists didn’t care about them then,” the statement continued. “Florida’s program gave them a fresh start in a sanctuary state and these individuals opted to take advantage of chartered flights to Massachusetts. It was disappointing that Martha’s Vineyard called in the Massachusetts National Guard to bus them away from the island within 48 hours,” the DeSantis team added.
Democrats and progressives have accused DeSantis of everything from kidnapping to human trafficking with his relocation program. Approximately $12 million was allocated in the state’s budget to carry out the program.
Let’s hope that this lawsuit won’t last very long and a judge is quick to throw out this case.
