Martha’s Vineyard declares ‘humanitarian crisis’ as Ron DeSantis sends 50 illegal immigrants to wealthy liberal enclave

The left is in a tizzy after Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) sent some illegal immigrants to the wealthy white liberal enclave of Martha’s Vineyard as part of a stunt to draw attention to Joe Biden’s reckless open border policy.

Martha’s Vineyard declared a “humanitarian crisis” over the roughly 50 Venezuelan migrants arriving in the town of 17,000 that voted decisively for Biden in 2020.

DeSantis sends illegals to rich liberal enclave

Residents of the ritzy island, where homes average over $1,000,000, have expressed dismay over their new neighbors. Lisa Belcastro, the director of the Martha’s Vineyard Homeless Shelter, said the town cannot care for the migrants long-term and that they’ll have to be moved “somewhere else” eventually.

The reactions from liberal pundits on cable news and social media have also been amusing. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes huffed, “Deeply deeply sick and dehumanizing to fling human beings somewhere vindictively.” By “somewhere” Hayes presumably meant the places where liberal elites live.

But CNN’s John Berman might have taken the cake when he compared DeSantis’ move to the Holocaust.

DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw came equipped with a rejoinder for those on the left, like Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D), who say they’re rolling up their sleeves to take care of the migrants.

“Great! So, I take it you’re ready for a few thousand more migrants?” Pushaw said.

Liberals discover they like borders

As the leftist meltdown progressed, DeSantis took a swipe at Democrats who are going “berserk” after absorbing “a small fraction” of the number of migrants pouring into border towns every single day under Biden’s open borders regime.

“It just shows you, their virtue signaling is a fraud,” DeSantis said.

Texas’ Republican Governor Greg Abbott (R) has also been sending migrants to liberal “sanctuary cities” like New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., evoking more sanctimony and fake outrage from the left. Abbott even dropped off two busloads of migrants at Kamala Harris’s D.C. residence Thursday.

Biden’s press secretary said the migrants “abandoned” by DeSantis in Martha’s Vineyard “deserve better.”

Just like that, Democrats are forgetting all about that sappy poem on the Statue of Liberty. And all it took was making them live with the consequences of their own policies for all of five seconds.
