DeSantis vows to continue transferring migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. Some of the migrants who arrived in Martha’s Vineyard in Cape Cod detailed their arduous journeys to the United States, and after becoming a part of a national spectacle, they described feeling anxious about their futures.
As part of an intensifying conflict between Republican governors and the White House over immigration policy, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis claimed credit for transporting the group of perhaps fifty people to the liberal enclave by plane.
A meaningful education, the freedom to express his opinions without fear of persecution, and a job where he can earn enough money to afford food are all things that Carlos Muos, who has a son who is four years old, said he didn’t have growing up in Venezuela. Carlos Muos said he traveled all the way from Venezuela to give those things to his son.
Muos, who had been studying electrical engineering before the economic collapse of Venezuela forced him to stop his studies, has stated that he wants to resume his education and hopes that his kid would one day follow in his footsteps and attend college.
“Peace is what I seek,” he declared. “Tranquility.”
Muos is among a group of migrants, most of whom are from Venezuela, who unexpectedly landed in Martha’s Vineyard after being chartered on two separate planes by DeSantis. It is the most recent measure in a series of actions taken by Republican governors with the intention of shocking Democratic bastions with big influxes of migrants.
It has drawn a torrent of criticism from opponents, including President Joe Biden, who accused DeSantis of “playing politics with human beings, using them as props.” DeSantis vowed on Friday to continue the programme, but it has drawn a firestorm of criticism.
Everlides Dela Hoz, a mother and a grandmother, remembered the arduous journey to the United States, during which she watched others in her group of passengers die from heart attacks, drowning, and a snake bite. She was one of the travelers who made it to the United States.
Many people, upon discovering that they were now on Martha’s Vineyard, voiced sentiments of uncertainty as they pondered the possibilities of what lay ahead for them. Others, who were promised jobs and housing, felt as though they had been lied to.
Through a translator, Dela Hoz shared her experience, saying, “When we got on the plane, they told us that they would provide us employment, a place to live, and everything.” “It seems as though the entire group is in a bad mood. However, they did transport us to a pleasant location.
On Friday, Pedro Luis Torrelaba, who is 36 years old, was quoted as saying, “I simply feel misled since they spoke a lie and it has come to nothing.”
In the meantime, the administration of Vice President Joe Biden has said that it will “urge resources” to El Paso, the sixth-largest city in the state of Texas, where homeless shelters are at capacity and migrants who have nowhere else to go are sleeping on the streets.
The Department of Homeland Security did not reply to requests for comment, so the White House did not expound on what the administration is doing to help migrants. Instead, the White House deferred inquiries to the Department of Homeland Security.
