DeSantis: ‘Next Stop’ for Haitian Illegals Who Land in Florida ‘May Be Martha’s Vineyard’

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has warned that Haitian illegal migrants who “land in the Florida Keys” could be transported to the wealthy elite playground of Martha’s Vineyard.

DeSantis has previously outraged Democrats by shipping off illegal aliens to the exclusive Massachusetts island where former President Barack Obama lives on his luxury estate.

The governor has now renewed warning that he will send illegals to the so-called “sanctuary destination” of Martha’s Vineyard amid fears that Haitians will soon flood South Florida.

“We do have our transport program also that’s going to be operational,” DeSantis said Tuesday on Dana Loesch’s podcast.

“Haitians land in the Florida Keys – their next stop very well may be Martha’s Vineyard.”

Florida is roughly 850 miles from Haiti.

The state has been hit by an influx of illegal migrants showing up on the Sunshine State’s shores by boat amid the nation’s conflict.

The Republican governor announced last week an increase of personnel and aircraft to the Florida coast in light of unrest in Haiti.

He warned of the potential for an increase in illegal border crossings via the sea from the conflict-hit country.

In a statement, DeSantis said:

“The problem when you get to a situation like Florida is if they have people in our state and we wanted to fly them, say, back to Haiti, you have to get clearance to be able to do that.

“If you wanted to fly somebody to a South American country, wherever they’re from, it becomes a little bit more difficult because the federal government’s going to tell the host countries not to accept our planes.

“It’s a little bit different for a maritime state like us,” he continued.

“That’s why we’ve really got to get them before they reach the shores, and that’s why we’re working so hard to do that.”

The Caribbean nation has seen a significant escalation in violence after gangs overran the capital of Port-au-Prince.

The issue has resulted in the resignation of embattled Prime Minister Ariel Henry.

Gangs have burned police stations and ransacked the main airport.

The violence has plunged the country into anarchy.

Gangs have also raided some of the largest prisons, releasing thousands of dangerous inmates.

Aid groups say nearly 1.4 million people in the nation are on the verge of famine and more than 4 million need help accessing food.

The defense deployment in Florida includes 48 additional National Guardsmen with four additional helicopters, 39 officers from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, 30 additional Florida Highway Patrol officers with aircraft and drones, and 23 additional officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission with eight additional seacrafts, according to DeSantis’s office.

On Friday, DeSantis said state law enforcement had intercepted a vessel coming to the Florida coast carrying dozens of military-aged male Haitian “migrants.”

On board the boat, authorities found firearms, drugs, and night vision gear.

“I’ve got to defend my state,” DeSantis said.

“I’ve got enough issues just dealing with people fleeing from blue states moving to Florida.”
