DeSantis Has Receipts That Pokes Major Holes in Migrant Class Action Lawsuit

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ office responded to the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of the migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard by immigration lawyers and activists by showing the migrants signed consent forms.

The lawsuit claims the flights were “a premeditated, fraudulent, and illegal scheme centered on exploiting [the migrants] for the sole purpose of advancing their own personal, financial and political interests.”

“It is opportunistic that activists would use illegal immigrants for political theater. If these activists spent even a fraction of this time and effort at the border, perhaps some accountability would be brought to the Biden Administration’s reckless border policies that entice illegal immigrants to make dangerous and often lethal journeys through Central America and put their lives in the hands of cartels and Coyotes,” said DeSantis’ office on Tuesday.

“The transportation of the immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard was done on a voluntary basis. The immigrants were homeless, hungry, and abandoned – and these activists didn’t care about them then,” the statement continued. “Florida’s program gave them a fresh start in a sanctuary state and these individuals opted to take advantage of chartered flights to Massachusetts. It was disappointing that Martha’s Vineyard called in the Massachusetts National Guard to bus them away from the island within 48 hours.”

Townhall was provided with a photo of a consent form showing the information given to the person who signed it was in English and Spanish. The person then wrote they would be leaving Texas and arriving in Massachusetts, highlighting the fact the migrants knew they would be taken to that state.

Democrats and progressives have accused DeSantis of everything from kidnapping to human trafficking with his relocation program. Around $12 million was allocated in the state’s budget to carry out the program.

    The Suits were filed by the liberal Texas sheriff and or a non profit liberal group, trying to represent the illegals.

    How dare they file anything about DeSantis. He only sent 50 people, and can you imagine if he had sent thousands. I think he just wanted to show what hypocrites they all are, in which they are. They say things and do not mean them. Who are the biggest complainers so far, Adams of New York, and Muriel of Washington DC. They say they are sanctuary cities and when Texas gets thousands on a daily basis that is okay. They will always twist something to their advantage. They are nothing but a bunch of lying, dried up pieces of crap. Do as I say but not as I do.

  • Robin says:

    How the heck are they going to find them again to ask if they signed a piece of paper? Just another frivolous law suit by a bunch of social justice lawyers!
    Ron could have signed them himself and these idiots wouldn’t know the difference!

    Breibart reported 2 days ago: Roughly the population of Ireland has already crossed into the US. Additionally, Venezuela is now emptying its prisons & they’re heading straight for our non-border.
    We must continue sending illegals to elitists’ front doors to make an impression – that, or build/guard the border ourselves.

  • Steven Stein says:

    The suits are all the product of the activists and atturkey looking to feather their own nes
