On Thursday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis defended his decision to send planes of illegal immigrants to the affluent Democrat area of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, noting the hypocrisy of his Democrat critics by saying “their virtue-signaling is a fraud.”
DeSantis began by pointing to the weak border security policies of Democrat President Joe Biden which have led to record breaking levels of illegal immigration.
“We take what is happening at the southern border very seriously, unlike some, and unlike the President of the United States, who has refused to lift a finger to secure that border,” DeSantis said. “You’ve had millions and millions of people pouring across illegally; record amount of fentanyl coming into our country; it is absolutely killing Americans in record numbers; of course you have criminal aliens.”
“Just the sheer number of people, it’s not the way you run a country,” he continued. “If you have folks that are inclined to think Florida’s a good place, our message to them is that we are not a sanctuary state, and it’s better to be able to go to a sanctuary jurisdiction, and yes, we will help facilitate that transport for you to be able to go to greener pastures.”
DeSantis then addressed complaints about the increase in illegal immigrants in their cities from Democrat Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Democrat New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who both lead sanctuary cities – meaning their cities protect illegal immigrants from deportation.
“All of those people in D.C. and New York were beating their chests when Trump was president, saying they were so proud to be sanctuary jurisdictions, saying how bad it was to have a secure border,” DeSantis noted. “The minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door, they all of a sudden go berserk and they’re so upset that this is happening. It just shows you their virtue-signaling is a fraud.”
“They are supporting policies that are frankly, just indefensible,” he stated. “It is not defensible for a superpower to not have any control over the territory of its country or the borders of its country.”
