When their utopia is threatened, the left moves quickly to deport illegal immigrants, but they show no remorse for the less fortunate Americans who must deal with the same level of unease about military-aged males visiting the country for a good time and free stuff- in their communities.
Nothing better exemplifies the left’s frailty and hypocrisy than the way they make fun of everyone else’s burdensome and out-of-control immigration issues while going ballistic over just 50 migrants.
The prospect of a small group of 50 migrants has driven the left nuts, and they have called in the national guard in an attempt to push the issue 32 miles away.
50 illegal immigrants are deported from Martha’s Vineyard to a military camp on Cape Cod after the billionaire’s hideaway there proclaimed a “humanitarian emergency” and collapsed as a result of DeSantis’ plan to send them there.
The 50 migrants who Gov. Ron DeSantis had flown into the wealthy island are now being transferred to a military installation 32 miles away.
The liberal authorities of the small island in Massachusetts immediately spoke out in horror, calling the action “inhumane.”
Less than 48 hours after they arrived, Governor Charlie Baker made the decision to transfer the illegal immigrants.
DeSantis claimed that those who criticized his decision to transport migrants to Martha’s Vineyard were “virtue signaling” and that their concern for the migrants’ wellbeing was a “fraud.”
Uninvited illegal immigrants who arrived in Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday are currently being transferred to a military base near Cape Cod.
Just 48 hours after arriving in the billionaire’s enclave, Governor Charlie Baker has forced the 50 migrants on buses to travel the 32 miles to Joint Base in Cape Cod (JBCC).
The DailyMail covered the specifics as follows:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew in the immigrants from Venezuela on Wednesday, sparking a widespread cry of outrage from the liberal leaders of the small island in Massachusetts.
It was declared a humanitarian emergency, with the island leaders responding in the same way as a hurricane.
On Friday morning three buses pulled up outside of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Edgartown to take the mostly Venezuelan migrants on the first leg of their journey.
They will be traveling from the elite island of billionaires with holiday mansions – including multi-million homes owned by the Obamas and Oprah – to the military base on the mainland, escorted by police.
Lisa Belcastro, a homelessness director in the area said on Thursday that the island cannot support the migrants – where the median home price is nearly $1m- because it is facing a shortage of affordable housing.
The median house in Martha’s Vineyard is worth almost $800,000, according to the census, and the median household income is $77,370 – well above the national average of $67,521.
She told reporters that at ‘some point they have to move somewhere else,’ because the island is suffering from a ‘housing crisis.’
The JBCC joint-use base, is home to five military commands training for missions at home and overseas, conducting airborne search and rescue missions, and intelligence command and control.

In a statement, Baker said: ‘JBCC is a facility already designated by MEMA as an emergency shelter in Barnstable County, and its existing infrastructure provides a safe temporary accommodation appropriate for the needs of families and individuals.
‘Additionally, the facility can provide dedicated space for access to legal services and other essential services such as basic healthcare.’
He affirmed that families won’t be split up and that the migrants will reside at the base in “dormitory-style areas.”
According to Baker, it served as a shelter for victims of Hurricane Katrina in the past and housed a field hospital when the COVID pandemic first emerged.
In addition, he has called up 125 members of the Massachusetts National Guard to assist with relief efforts. On Friday morning, police will accompany the buses as they arrive at the island’s ferry port.
With a population of 15,000, Martha’s Vineyard is, in Baker’s words, “not suited to offer sustainable lodging” for the migrants.
For the hour-and-a-half journey from the island to Cape Cod, they were all instructed to board buses.
One of the migrants, Jhorman Cuicas, told The MV Times that he wishes he could stay.

Senator Susan Moran declared that ‘Using vulnerable populations as pawns in a political game is heinous; this we can agree on regardless of a political party.’
‘I have been meeting with local and state agencies over the last 24 hours to ensure we are doing everything we can to support both the immigrants and the local officials who are on the front lines of responding to their needs.
