Blue State Migrant Crisis
On Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew two planes of immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard
The new playbook: DeSantis sends migrants to Martha's Vineyard
On Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew two planes of immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, an upscale Massachusetts island home to residents like former President Barack Obama which defines itself as a sanctuary city.
Why? According to DeSantis’ administration, many blue states incentivize illegal immigration through their “sanctuary state” status—meaning they present themselves as a safe zone for illegal migrants worried about law enforcement, detainment, and deportation. For this reason, the Florida governor believes these states should feel the burden of their actions.
It’s now a Republican strategy: Texas Gov. Greg Abbot has been busing tens of thousands of consenting migrants to New York, Chicago, and Washinton, D.C. since April. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has been sending migrants to the capital since May. Just today, another 100 migrants were dropped off near Vice President Kamala Harris' residence there.
New York City’s mayor said the city’s “right to shelter” policy—which requires the city to shelter the homeless—needs to be reassessed after nearly 11,000 migrants have overwhelmed the city's shelter system.
Washington, D.C.’s mayor declared a 15-day public emergency over the almost 10,000 migrants bused into the capital since April.
Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker issued a state of disaster to allocate resources to provide the migrants with transportation, emergency shelter and housing, food, and more. The state’s national guard was activated to help.
Big picture: Border states like Arizona and Texas have to deal with the consequences of the border crisis. Blue areas like New York and D.C. that encourage illegal immigration have never had to deal with the results of their policies and rhetoric until now.
📊 POLL: This new Republican strategy is good for dealing with the migrant crisis.

Trump hit from all directions: all the investigations into the Former President
Former President Donald Trump and his allies have found themselves in a variety of legal trouble as Trump is likely to announce his 2024 presidential run.
Investigating Trump: The Department of Justice (DOJ) is investigating Trump for allegedly mishandling classified documents. This follows the unprecedented raid on his Florida estate last month carried out by the same FBI unit previously involved in the corrupt “Russian collusion” investigation.
Investigating Trump’s allies: As part of its politicized investigation into the January 6 Capitol riot, the DOJ has subpoenaed 40 former Trump aides in one week and seized two former advisers’ phones.
Investigating Trump’s political fundraising organization: A federal grand jury investigating January 6 is now probing Trump’s fundraising PAC created after the 2020 election.
Investigating Trump’s business: New York Attorney General Letitia James, who campaigned on putting Trump behind bars, is probing his real estate business for potential financial fraud. James also teamed with Manhattan’s district attorney last week to indict former Trump adviser Steve Bannon. They allege fraudulent activity related to Bannon’s border wall fundraiser during Trump’s presidency.
The suspicious timing: Trump has reportedly discussed plans to run for reelection in 2024. Highly publicized investigations or scandals can destroy one’s campaign. The FBI refused to investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop precisely for this reason, determined to protect his father from the scandal and not “change the outcome” of the 2020 election.
