In response to criticism that he transported migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis hushes Democrats who remained silent when Biden transported migrants across the U.S. He claims he didn’t hear a peep about something very specific that was going on prior to this incident.

A few days ago, Democrat congressman Hakeem Jeffries stated during a press conference, “The behavior of individuals like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott is radical, reckless, regressive and reprehensible.

“They should start behaving like governors and stop behaving like human traffickers. They are putting politics over people in the most egregious way possible.”

During an event in Florida, DeSantis responded to questions from the press. A reporter asked DeSantis to comment on “human trafficking” accusations against him for transporting about 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, an important Democratic stronghold. “When Biden is flying these people all over the fruited plain in the middle of the night, I didn’t hear a peep out of those people. I haven’t heard a peep about all the people that have been told by Biden you can just come in, and they’re going, they’re being abused by the cartels, they’re drowning in the Rio Grande. You had 50 that died in some shed in Texas,” DeSantis responded, according to Daily Wire.

“I heard no outrage about any of that. I haven’t heard outrage about all the fentanyl that’s come across the border that’s killing Americans in record numbers. I don’t hear outrage about the criminal aliens that have gotten through and have then victimized people — not only in Florida, but all throughout the country. I didn’t hear any outrage about that. The only thing I hear them getting upset about is you have 50 that end up in Martha’s Vineyard, then they get really upset,” he continued.

Two planes full of migrants were sent last week to Martha’s Vineyard by DeSantis, as he promised to drop off illegal immigrants in progressive states. The Florida governor claimed that the mistreatment of migrants at the border under the administration of President Biden is atrocious. “And I’m sorry, those migrants were being treated horribly by Biden. They were hungry, homeless, they had no opportunity at all. State of Florida, it was volunteer, offered transport to sanctuary jurisdictions, because it’s our view that one, the border should be secured. And we want to have Biden reinstitute policies like Remain in Mexico and making sure that people aren’t overwhelming. But short of that, if you believe in open borders, then it’s the sanctuary jurisdictions that should have to bear the brunt of the open borders — so that’s what we’re doing. But what happened was, they were they were provided an ability to be in the most posh sanctuary jurisdiction maybe in the world,” DeSantis stated.

He also lashed out at Martha’s Vineyard residents saying, “And obviously, it’s sad that Martha’s Vineyard people deported them the next day; they could have absorbed this, they chose not to. But what it shows is, if 50 was a burden on one of the richest places in our country, what about all these other communities that have been overrun with hundreds or thousands?”
