The illegal immigrants Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew to Martha’s Vineyard in 2022 liked it there. Now, more may be on their way, as Florida prepares to be flooded with illegal immigrants from Haiti, Gov. DeSantis revealed this week.

Haiti’s gang violence and unrest in the wake of the resignation of its prime minister have made Florida an attractive target for illegal immigration from the Caribbean country in crisis.

In 2022, Gov. DeSantis flew two planeloads of immigrants to posh Martha’s Vineyard, in the self-designated “sanctuary” state of Massachusetts, which claims to welcome illegal aliens.

Martha Vineyard’s rich residents freaked out, declaring a humanitarian crisis. The undocumented migrants, on the other hand, were quite pleased with their new surroundings, according to a report by The Daily Caller:

“DeSantis previously flew illegal migrants from his state to Martha’s Vineyard in Sept. 2022. Several illegal migrants from the flights remained on the Massachusetts island months after their arrival, with some who stayed expressing their enjoyment of the location in June 2023.”

Today, as Florida braces for a surge of Haitians, Gov. DeSantis said some of them may also be flown out of his state to the sanctuary of Martha’s Vineyard.



In an interview this week with podcast Host Dana Loesch, Gov. DeSantis floated the idea of, once again, flying immigrants to other states – some of them to the welcoming shores of Martha’s Vineyard:

“We do have our transport program, also, that’s going to be operational. So, Haitians land in the Florida Keys, their next stop very well may be Martha’s Vineyard.”

Florida has to send immigrants to other U.S. states, instead of back to where they came from, because of government interference, DeSantis said.

While some governments don’t want them back, those who do would be told by the Biden Administration not to allow them to return, DeSantis explained:

“The federal government’s going to tell the host countries not to accept our planes.”
