DeSantis’ Office Responds To Democrat Sheriff Who Launched Probe Into Migrant Flights

The office of Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has responded to a Democrat sheriff’s announcement that his county would be opening an investigation into the 50 illegal immigrants that were flown to Martha’s Vineyard last week.

San Antonio’s Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar announced the investigation during a press conference on Monday. Salazar said that the flights “bother[ed]” him and so he was “absolutely opening up an investigation into this.”

However, the Democrat sheriff admitted that he was “not able” to name any laws that were broken and he did not name any suspects but he still believes “it’s wrong.”

In response to Salazar’s announcement, a spokesperson for DeSantis released a statement, saying, “Immigrants have been more than willing to leave Bexar County after being abandoned, homeless, and ‘left to fend for themselves.’”

“Florida gave them an opportunity to seek greener pastures in a sanctuary jurisdiction that offered greater resources for them, as we expected,” the spokesperson added. “Unless the MA national guard has abandoned these individuals, they have been provided accommodations, sustenance, clothing and more options to succeed following their unfair enticement into the United States, unlike the 53 immigrants who died in a truck found abandoned in Bexar County this June.”

During a press conference last week, DeSantis explained that the migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard did so voluntarily and they were given a release form to sign and a packet that included a map of the area.

“So it was obvious that that’s where they were going and they gave that to them,” DeSantis Said. “And here’s the thing, it’s all voluntary, because it’s just the type of thing where we think that’s the right way to do it.”

“I mean, I think that if the states could send, I would send back to Mexico or back to the home country,” he continued. “But here we are doing it voluntarily, they sign a release, and then they get a packet. So they did get a packet that had the map of Martha’s Vineyard. And they’re also treated, you know very well with all this, I mean, they’re treated well with meals and everything.”
