CNN, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS are outraged with DeSantis for transporting migrants to affluent Martha’s Vineyard.

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! After Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew 50 migrants to the posh, liberal island community of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, media outlets all over the world erupted in outrage and shock.

In reaction to the Biden administration’s inability to secure the southern border, the governor was in charge of transporting two flights full of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, according to information provided by DeSantis’ office to Fox News Digital on Wednesday.

Democrats from both parties, including those from Martha’s Vineyard, denounced the governor and charged that he was exploiting undocumented residents as “political pawns.”

Left-leaning personalities on well-known media networks soon repeated the Democratic talking points, spurred to address the topic after receiving little coverage for more than a year.

Ron DeSantis on Wednesday flew two planes of immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, escalating a tactic by Republican governors to draw attention to what they consider to be the Biden administration's failed border policies.

While “CBS Mornings” welcomed a program on Martha’s Vineyard describing how migrants ended up being “used for politics” in a “inhumane” fashion, an ABC News report on Thursday called the tale a “stunt” that used people to “make political points.”

In this specific instance, “the adjective inhumane was a good one to use,” CBS Following the reading of the report, Gayle King said. People don’t know where they’re going, and others who are already there are unaware that you’re arriving.

The wording used in the media was consistent.
Whoopi Goldberg, a co-host on “The View,” attacked DeSantis, referring to him as a “bonehead” who had made a “nasty” gesture.

Van Jones, a political journalist for CNN, remarked on “Erin Burnett OutFront” that “there’s no excuse for misleading people, trapping people, or torturing individuals who have come to the United States.”

GOP Governors are being targeted by the Biden administration in “Litigation” over immigrants sent to democratic cities.

Burnett added, “Human people.”

Jones retorted, “Human humans.

In the meantime, CNN presenter Jake Tapper blamed the Republican base for the absence of substantive immigration legislation up to this point, noting that DeSantis presumably took this step to pander to the Republican base. He asserted that Presidents Donald Trump and George W. Bush tried to enact immigration reform or at least give it “lip service,” but ultimately they were concerned about how it would appear to some conservatives.

The remedies are right there, but it looks like the Republican base doesn’t understand that fear of them has prevented the solution from happening, he said. “These antics are being done to pander to the Republican base,” he said.

DeSantis was even accused by certain media sources of engaging in human trafficking by transporting migrants from Texas to Massachusetts.

Joe Scarborough, presenter of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referred to the movement of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard as “political human trafficking,” and he charged DeSantis with exploiting them for a publicity ploy intended at “owning the libs.”

Is there any discussion regarding whether this is a crime taking place as a result of your reporting? Joy Reid, a host on MSNBC, questioned Miami Herald reporter David Ovalle. “hence this has been referred to as trafficking. There has recently been a lot of talk on how these governors, especially Ron DeSantis, have trafficked these families.”

She continued by describing DeSantis’ behavior as “cruel, disgusting, and sadistic.”


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke about sending migrants to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, Thursday, Sept. 15, 2022.

On Thursday’s episode of CNN’s “New Day,” director Ken Burns appeared on the program to promote his newest PBS film, “The U.S. and the Holocaust.”

During the debate, host John Berman attempted to connect the Marthas Vineyard narrative to Burns’ movie and prodded the documentarian by claiming that all of his documentaries are about Marthas Vineyard “make you consider where we are right now. Additionally, we learned this morning that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had dispatched two planeloads of migrants to the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard.”

While denying that he was drawing a direct analogy between DeSantis and Nazi Germany, Berman did admit that “it does touch some of the same themes that are part of this documentary.”

“The abstraction of human life, that is. In essence, it is suggesting that you may utilize a human life, no less valuable than yours, mine, or Lynn’s, and turn it into a pawn in a political game played by an authoritarian, “Burns answered.

DeSantis, he continued, had “weaponized people for a political game,” which was “right out of the authoritarian playbook,” according to him.

The discussion of historical parallels continued on MSNBC, where Rev. Al Sharpton asked viewers to scrutinize the “racist notations” present in DeSantis’ choice.

He asserted that Republican governors “targeted” cities with Black mayors, such as Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C. The entrance of immigrants in Martha’s Vineyard was also compared by Sharpton to the “segregationist approach” of the 1960s.

“During the struggle against segregation, the segregationists bused people to Massachusetts and told them they were going to meet John Kennedy, and they told the Black people they were going to meet with president John Kennedy, and they were going to get a discussion about the things that they were concerned about,” Sharpton said. “And the trip was a fraud. When they arrived in Massachusetts. John Kennedy was absent, and there was no conversation. Likewise, they are utilizing these migrants by making the same false promises.”

In addition to the more than 1.7 million encounters in fiscal 2021, there have already been more than two million encounters with migrants this fiscal year alone. Just 0.0025% of that total—50 migrants—would be relocated to Martha’s Vineyard. While the Border Patrol returns a large proportion of them through the Title 42 public health order or other means, a sizable portion are allowed to enter the country while they wait for their asylum hearings, which might take up to eight years. Additionally, it excludes the thousands of “gotaways” who managed to elude capture.
