Biden-supporting Martha’s Vineyard isn’t the sanctuary it claimed to be

The overwhelmingly Democrat-voting residents of Martha’s Vineyard were surprised last week when Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) flew in 50 illegal migrants.

Yet, rather than celebrate this influx of diversity, officials responded by ordering National Guard troops to relocate the newcomers. 

Conservatives claim hypocrisy

Many conservatives were quick to call out how most of those in Martha Vineyard weren’t willing to welcome the migrants despite having opposed former President Trump and his border control policies.

They included former Trump administration official Monica Crowley, who tweeted, The wealthy elites on the Vineyard couldn’t stand to have the undesirables there for more than 2 days, so they shipped them off to a military base. Someone else’s problem now. Back to the Chardonnay!”

Eric Schmitt is the Republican Party’s Senate nominee in Missouri, and he took note of the apparent inconsistency as well.

“Sanctuary” status questioned

Meanwhile, mixed martial artist Jon Fitch tweeted, “Martha’s Vineyard might be the most racist place in America. They called the national guard over 50 non-white people. Gross.”

For his part, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz drew attention to Martha’s Vineyard’s much touted status as a so-called “sanctuary jurisdiction.

Donald Trump Jr. noted the contrast between how the Biden administration was willing to make a military base available to house the migrants when Martha’s Vineyard was inconvenienced and yet does nothing to protect communities along the border.

“It took less than 24 hours for the libs to kick these illegal immigrants out of Martha’s Vineyard, but Biden won’t lift a finger to deport the thousands of illegals pouring through the southern border daily out of the country,” he tweeted.
