Liberal journalist Judd Legum found out that flight records indicate that the next destination for illegal immigrants sent by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appears to be Joe Biden’s “backyard” in Delaware.

Multiple busloads of illegals from Texas recently hit Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence last week near the Naval Observatory in D.C.
“Between 75 and 100 people who were picked up in Eagle Pass, Texas, were sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott,” Fox News reported. “The group includes migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico. Multiple migrants, asked by Fox News Digital, said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview.”
Harris claimed the move was merely a “political stunt,” although Republicans appear to be sincere in making Democrats pay for failing to secure the southern border.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has sent two planes of immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
It’s part of an effort to “transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations,” DeSantis’s office says.
The island was given a 20 minute notice, sources say.

During an appear on Fox News, DeSantis explained that he’s just getting started.
“Just for the record, this was voluntary,” Fox News’ Sean Hannity said. “All migrants were put up in hotels, given accommodations, they were fed, they were showered. They were offered haircuts and, and any other service that they were needed, correct?”
“Yeah, not only that they all signed consent forms to go,” DeSantis said. “And then the vendor that, that is doing this for Florida, provided them with a packet that had a map of Martha’s Vineyard.”
“It had the numbers for different services on Martha’s Vineyard, and then it had numbers for the overall agencies in Massachusetts that handle things involving immigration and refugees. So it was clearly voluntary and all the other nonsense hearing is just not true.”
“And, and why wouldn’t they want to go given where they were, they were in really, really bad shape,” he continued. “And they got to be cleaned up, everything, treated well. And then put in a situation, you say, Sean, there are jobs available in Martha’s Vineyard.”
“There is lodging available in Martha’s Vineyard. Had they lived up to their, what they build themselves at as a sanctuary jurisdiction, they could have absorbed those people without a problem.”
“But here’s the thing — they said they didn’t have housing,” DeSantis added. “They said they couldn’t accommodate. Let’s just say that’s true for a minute. Well, what does that mean for these poor towns in Texas?”
“What does it mean for these other places across the country that are seeing influx? What does it mean to these small towns that Biden has dumped so many people in?”
“And so I think what we’ve been able to do is show that this border is a disaster,” he continued. “Biden has failed on this as much or more than on any other policy. And now people are talking about it and we want solutions as Americans. We want to make sure that Trump’s policies of remain in Mexico can be reconstituted so we can get control over what’s going on.”
According to FAIR estimates, there have been 4.9 million illegal migrant crossings at the southern border under President Joe Biden and 900,000 ‘gotaways’ who have made it into the country. The estimated cost of the additional illegal immigrants to the country is $20 billion per year.
