DeSantis sends Venezuelan migrants to Martha’s Vineyard

With 1.66 million immigrants apprehended at the U.S. border and ports, border control has become an increasingly pressing debate in American politics, particularly in sanctuary cities or states where local laws protect undocumented immigrants. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has remained adamant through his term that Florida will not be considered a “sanctuary state,” despite Florida having one of the highest immigrant populations in the U.S. On Wednesday, Sept. 14, DeSantis sent 50 undocumented Venezuelan migrants to a summer resort community in Martha’s Vineyard, via two charter flights. They were later moved to a military base, where they were provided food, shelter, lawyers and medical assistance.
