Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Authorities in Texas have opened a criminal investigation into Gov. Ron DeSantis' operation to fly roughly 50 Venezuelan migrants from Texas to Martha's Vineyard last week.



Admin's note: Participants in this discussion must follow the site's moderation policy. Profanity will be filtered. Abusive conduct is not allowed.

Many migrants said they agreed to fly from San Antonio to the Massachussets island after being promised jobs. But there was no work waiting. "I believe people need to be held accountable for it to the extent possible," Salazar said. "At this point, I'm not able to definitively say here's the statute that they broke, either federal, state or local, but what I can tell you is it's wrong. Just from a human rights perspective, what was done to these folks is wrong."
Just what a governor seeking re-election in 50 days needs. Now Ron's under investigation in two states for his stunt of furtively flying Venezuelan migrants from Texas to Massachusetts after intentionally luring these unsuspected travelers with bogus lures of immigration help and resources that were not available to them once they got there, and particularly not in Martha's Vineyard where they were dropped off - alone, in a strange place with no one prepared to immediately assist them.

Does Texas still hang horse thieves?

Apparently, DeSantis has funded another flight for tomorrow to drop off migrants in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Florida Department of Transportation reports another $950k payment to Vertol. Looks like the next DeSantis immigrant flight leaves San Antonio tomorrow AM on its way to Delaware. 15 minute layover in FL

Here's hoping the Bexar County sheriff catches and detains any and all conspirators involved in this vile trick upon the unwitting, and perhaps impounds the planes involved as evidence in a crime scene.

One of the post-mortem action items the democrat party will need to address after November is managing the expectations of their mouth-breathers on the internet whenever a democrat-controlled congress, a politicized DOJ, or a joke-ass local politico Sheriff announces they're gonna "oPeN aN iNvEsTiGaTiOn".

That doesn't mean ---- anymore.

And everybody knows it.

Please all you alleged x-tians tell me where in the Bible does it say to trick migrants seeking shelter? Oh, yeah, it doesn't. Here are 22 verses telling you what to do. Guess all that religion malarkey is only when it agrees with your point of view, huh?

Special place in hell for each an every one of you. And I know you believe in hell because you say Democrats are satanic. LOL!!! Ya'll are SOOOOOO STUPID!

MAO will one day get a DNA ancestry test that establishes Texas would have within quite living memory legally seen him as Negro.

Martha's Vineyard?

Rehoboth Beach, DE?

At the doorstep of the VP?

Anyone else see a trend?

If he really wanted to help AND send spread the responsibility AND not pull a stunt, you'd think they would transport these people to a place where they could actually get what they need - which is DeSantis' ultimate responsibility.

I mean, he might as well just dump them at my doorstep.

Well, DeSantis latest stunt ended up so far as a dud. Word travels fast - especially when cretins prey on the defenselessness of aliens:

Gov. DeSantis threatened to send migrants to Biden's Delaware home. It was a no-show.

Reports that a plane carrying migrants was heading to President Joe Biden's home state of Delaware sowed chaos across three states on Tuesday and brought public condemnation from the White House. State officials mobilized. Community groups stood by to help. Reporters and camera crews staked out airports.

But the plane - and the migrants - never showed.

"We have no reports of anyone arriving at this point," said Jill Fredel of the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services after officials waited for hours for the plane to arrive at Delaware Coastal Airport in Sussex County.

At the White House, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the Biden administration was aware of reports that a plane was heading to Delaware. The White House was in "close contact" with Delaware officials, but had not been in touch with DeSantis or his administration, she said.

"Our heads up did not come from Gov. DeSantis because his only goal, as he's made it really quite clear, is to create chaos and using immigrants fleeing communism as political pawns," Jean-Pierre said. "So it's about creating political theater for him. It's not about getting to a solution."

That last paragraph is solid.
"DeSantis abuses migrants fleeing communism for political gain."
gotta be a way to get this succinct and a slam to his gut.
