Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has achieved a new low by using people seeking asylum as a political prop. In fact he didn’t invent the thought (xenophobic hat tip to Donald Trump!), earlier than DeSantis despatched a planeload of individuals from Venezuela to Martha’s Winery, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey have been sending migrants to Democratic strongholds like Chicago and Washington, D.C.
This cruelty is happening to, you already know, “personal the libs” and make these lefties understand what life is like for MAGA states alongside the southern border. The truth that migrants are fleeing violence and persecution of their residence international locations to hunt asylum in the USA apparently doesn’t exempt them from being utilized in elaborate, multi-state publicity stunts.
Whereas Republicans have been very public about what they’re doing with 1000’s of migrants, President Biden has been somewhat quieter in regards to the million-plus migrants his administration has turned away. (To Biden’s credit score, he has managed to enhance issues for youngsters touring alone and migrant households, though the bar set by the earlier administration was positively not very excessive.)
Right here’s hoping some Republican governors get prosecuted for human trafficking, even when the site visitors was within the route of locations like Martha’s Winery and Washington, D.C.
