As part of a rally held this past Sunday out in Kansas City, Missouri, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) found himself greeted by a massive standing ovation when he made reference to his plan which transported a group of 50 illegal immigrants from his Florida out to the extremely wealthy leftist enclave known as Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
DeSantis issues his comments at a rally in Olathe, Kansas, for the state’s GOP gubernatorial candidate, Kansas state Attorney General Derek Schmidt. The landing of the immigrants, and the extreme efforts following their arrival to try and get them out as quickly as possible from the wealthy island, dominated the national news circuit this past week.
“The one place in the country where we see virtually no law and order is at the southern border. And this is a crisis,” explained DeSantis, before continuing on with a sly grin. “It’s now getting a little more attention.”
The comment kicked off a standing ovation from the gathered crowd as DeSantis went on to insist, “This is a crisis. It is a crisis. And it’s a manufactured crisis because of Biden’s failed policies.”
DeSantis started to speak once again about the reactions coming from the residents of Martha’s Vineyard concerning the migrants, pointing out, “You’re talking about 50 people. Did they get them employed? Did they get them set up? No. They called out the National Guard and they deported those people off the island the very next day.”
DeSantis also highlighted that he knew just how devoted the people of Kansas were to the city’s renowned Kansas City Chiefs, stating that the ones who organized the rally “said they wanted to do it on a Sunday afternoon and I said, ‘the Kansas City Chiefs better not be playing.’”
DeSantis made sure to announce his support for Schmidt, explaining to the crowd, “You have a legislature here that will produce a lot of good legislation. You just need a governor that will sign the legislation. And you guys can make that happen.”
Just a scant few hours in the wake of the Kansas event, DeSantis, who has been making extensive use of his campaign funds to support various GOP candidates all over the country, spoke out at a rally held in Wisconsin for the GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels. Making the declaration that the subject of immigration is back “on the ballot” for November, he expressed, “This border is now an issue in these elections. And I think it’s something that our candidates need to take,” stated CNN.
Michels went on to praise DeSantis, labeling him “a man who was willing to step up and make the hard decisions.”
