Martha’s Vineyard Pleads Poverty, Illegals Go
Martha’s Vineyard Pleads Poverty, Illegals Go
The epic levels of wailing, caterwauling, and gnashing of teeth have been, quite frankly, hilarious for average Americans to watch, as the deep blue and wealthy enclave of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachussetts, had four dozen illegal immigrants show up for help and services.
Wait, you say. Four DOZEN? That’s it?? The border towns end up with hundreds of illegals entering on a DAILY basis, and Martha’s Vineyard had a meltdown over 48 people??
Yes, this was a stunt and a troll move by Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, who paid for the travel that dropped these illegal immigrants off in Martha’s Vineyard. And it was brilliant, because it proved every single point about NIMBYism and how blue areas like to talk about being a “sanctuary” city or state – but flip out when forced to live up to their big talk. After all, Martha’s Vineyard is in a HOUSING CRISIS, everyone!
Anyone of those 50 immigrants who can afford the $1.35 million median home price in Martha's Vineyard is more than welcome to stay here as long as they like…..pic.twitter.com/vSOSL5ZWbW

Oh, but wait. The rich and coddled of Martha’s Vineyard CARE, everyone. They care SO VERY MUCH… that a day after these four dozen illegals showed up, the NATIONAL GUARD was sent in to remove them to Joint Base Cape Cod.
You see, Martha’s Vineyard is just not set up to deal with this kind of need – apparently, they are a community of the super-uber rich who have empty vacation homes, and the very poor who can barely find a place to live. And these illegal migrants arriving? Why, this was such a devastating blow that a GoFundMe was set up!
I kid you not. Some very wealthy person who had her wedding reported on in the New York Times set up a GoFundMe to help the social services of Martha’s Vineyard care for 48 people – which they got removed by the National Guard the next day.
There was a major shelter for migrants in El Paso, TX that shut down over the summer because they couldn't make $50,000 rent or recruit enough volunteers. https://t.co/sTL4brDv5n

The GoFundMe is an example of epic hilarity and how rich liberals want to deal with real-life problems – just throw money at it, so long as it all stays far, far away from them. And yet they see themselves as the “good” ones, while Ron DeSantis and everyone who is pointing out their hypocrisy are the mean and unloving ones.
But wait, you say. The Biden administration has been dropping off illegal migrants by planeload all over the country. NBC News even covered it! The entire point of moving these illegals by plane was to ease the pressure on the border, and get rid of the bad optics that make people think the border is not secure. WHY would they think THAT?
The plan would alleviate overcrowding along the border, where record numbers of border crossers have overwhelmed the capacity of shelters in some cities, at times leading Customs and Border Protection, or CBP, to release migrants on the street to fend for themselves.”
Typically, migrants who are allowed to stay in the country and make asylum claims are released to shelters run by religious and nongovernmental organizations after they are released from CBP custody. From there, the migrants pay for flights and bus transportation to cities where they go before immigration judges who will rule on their asylum claims.”
The new model would use federal funds to send migrants to shelters in cities farther inside the country before they go to their final destinations. Besides Los Angeles, they will be sent to Albuquerque, New Mexico; Houston; Dallas; and other cities. DHS is working with shelters in each of the cities in advance of moving migrants. The agency’s Southwest Border Coordination Center, which combines officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, CBP and other agencies, is coordinating the effort.”
So, when the Biden administration moves illegals into big cities in border states, that’s okay. But if Governor Greg Abbott or Governor Ron DeSantis send illegals to big cities in blue states (like Chicago) or to the playground of the rich and famous that likes to preen and call themselves a “sanctuary city,” then it’s “human trafficking.”
But never fear, Karine Jean-Pierre is here! And she’s going to explain to us all how it was okay for the Biden administration to ship illegals by plane off the border, but it’s bad when the governors of Texas or Florida do it! These “political stunts” are putting people’s lives in danger!
KJP accuses Greg Abbott & Ron DeSantis of purposefully putting illegal immigrant families and children in fatal danger: "All we're seeing from them is petty & dangerous stunts. This is dangerous. They're putting children's lives at risk. They're putting family's lives at risk." pic.twitter.com/pILYtw9rmI

Oh yes, it is always, always, ALWAYS the fault of Republicans that the Democrats who control the executive and legislative branches of government cannot get “comprehensive immigration reform” passed. And those illegals were definitely in mortal danger in Martha’s Vineyard. After all, Martha’s Vineyard is apparently so dangerous that the National Guard had to be brought in to safely evacuate the illegals out.
The long and the short of it is that this “stunt” by DeSantis worked. So we should expect to see more of this. Make sure you have popcorn handy.
