Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis followed through on his pledge to deport illegal immigrants to Democratic-controlled areas by flying two aircraft transporting illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, a Massachusetts island where rich progressives such as former President Barack Obama (D) dwell.

"Yes, Florida can confirm that the two planes transporting illegal aliens that arrived on Martha's Vineyard today were part of the state's resettlement program to transfer illegal immigrants to sanctuary communities," stated a statement from DeSantis' office. "By designating themselves as'sanctuary states' and supporting the Biden administration's open borders policy, states like Massachusetts, New York, and California would better facilitate the care of these persons they brought into our country."

"As you may know, the Florida Legislature authorized $12 million this past legislative session to develop a program to expedite the transfer of illegal aliens from this state in accordance with federal law," the official added.

Fox News broadcast a video of illegal immigrants exiting flights at Martha's Vineyard Airport.

In December 2021, DeSantis announced his state budget plan, which called for millions of funds to begin deporting illegal immigrants from his state.

"I dedicated $8 million in yesterday's budget toward getting folks who are here illegally out of the state of Florida," DeSantis stated at the time. "That's a bit tongue-in-cheek, but if you deployed them to Delaware or Martha's Vineyard or one of those locations, the border would be safe the following day." 

The state legislature adopted a budget earlier this year that included more money than DeSantis requested, including $12 million for the Florida Department of Transportation to remove illegal immigrants from the state.
