Martha’s Vineyard officials are begging for federal assistance over what they are calling a “humanitarian crisis” after just 50 illegal aliens were flown into the elite island where the nation’s wealthiest residents vacation.
On Wednesday evening, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced that he had sent two planes full of Venezuelan illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard. The move comes as Texas and Arizona have sent thousands of border crossers on migrant buses to New York City, Chicago, and Washington, DC, over the last few months.
Only about 50 illegal aliens have been flown to Martha’s Vineyard, but the island’s officials are calling it a “humanitarian crisis” and have said they are begging for state and federal assistance to deal with the tiny influx of illegal immigration.
