Democrat leaders who claim to be “humanitarians” from liberal “sanctuary” cities and areas have brought in the National Guard to forcefully remove only 50 migrants from Martha’s Vineyard and transport them to a military base. On Thursday, Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce declared a “humanitarian crisis.”
Massachusetts Democratic governor Charlie Baker said Friday he is deploying up to 125 National Guard members in response to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sending a group of a mere 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
“Our Administration has been working across state government to develop a plan to ensure these individuals will have access to the services they need going forward, and Joint Base Cape Cod is well equipped to serve these needs,” the governor said.
The national guardsmen will meet the immigrants at Joint Base Cape Cod on the mainland. Buses retrieved the group of Venezuelans from St. Andrews church in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard Friday morning, roughly 24 hours after they arrived on the island from San Antonio, Texas.
Massachusetts state Representative Dylan Fernandes, whose district includes part of Martha’s Vineyard, displayed his not-so-bleeding heart when he reacted to the migrants on Twitter:
“The Governor of one of the biggest states in the nation has been spending time hatching a secret plot to round up & ship people-children, families-lying to them about where theyre going just to gain cheap political points on Tucker Calrson [sic] and MAGA twitter. It’s f***ing depraved.”
House Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee tweeted Friday: “If there is a humanitarian crisis in Martha’s Vineyard, wouldn’t it stand to reason there is a drastically more significant humanitarian crisis at the Southwest border?”
In a Press Release first published on September 14, the Dukes County Emergency Management Association wrote: “At 1500 today approximately 50 individuals, to the best of our knowledge originating from Venezuela, landed at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport, seeking shelter. This is an ongoing situation’ Town Emergency Management Operations from the six island towns and the Sheriff’s Office, as well as County Management are actively collaborating to develop a coordinated regional response.”
