Leftists have been enraged after Texas and Florida governors had bussed illegal migrants to DC and Martha’s vineyard last week. Both cities proclaim they are so-called sanctuary cities.
Since before the election of President Trump, cities have labeled themselves “sanctuary cities” in protest of state and federal immigration laws.
The move by the conservative governors has come during a time when the nation’s southern boarder has been burdened with nearly two million border crossings since Biden’s election. While the number of illegal migrants that have been transplanted to DC and other left-leaning cities have been comparatively miniscule, officials in those cities have claimed they are unable to care for the migrants.
Fifty of such illegal migrants were sent to the affluent island (and sanctuary city) of Martha’s Vineyard. The residents of the resort community, which has a number of hotels in the area , claimed that they had no room and removed the migrants and relocated them to a military installation on Cape Cod.

The events that have unfolded received national media attention, with several officials saying Florida and Texas Governors have used migrants as political pawns, as well as engaged in a type of human trafficking. However, Joe Biden, since taking office, has sent thousands of illegal migrants all over the United States, many times even airlifting them to targeted areas.
According to Fox News, Florida Representative Michael Waltz said, “Those are Biden administration, taxpayer-funded contracts with a number of NGOs that are flying these people in the dead of night to all of these same locations, then it’s fine.”
Waltz went on to say, “But if you have Governor DeSantis or Governor Abbott or [Arizona] Governor Ducey doing it in the middle of the day when everyone can see it, then suddenly we’re up in arms and having a collective political meltdown.”
Texas Senator Ted Cruz said in a Tweet, “National Guard sent to interdict 50 illegal immigrants who disturbed liberals’ golf games & Chardonnay at Martha’s Vineyard. Biden does NOTHING to address 4.2 MILLION illegal immigrants who have flooded small towns in Texas. Biden doesn’t care.”
??? Leftist hypocrisy: National Guard sent to interdict 50 illegal immigrants who disturbed liberals’ golf games & Chardonnay at Martha’s Vineyard.
Biden does NOTHING to address 4.2 MILLION illegal immigrants who have flooded small towns in Texas.
Biden doesn’t care. https://t.co/j5JhPk4JxJ

Representative Lauren Boebert responded by tweeting:
Any residents of Martha’s Vineyard who have a “Coexist” bumper sticker on their car are hereby required to remove it.
