In the media storm following Florida Governor Ron DeSantis dropping off 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, the Homeless Shelter Coordinator Lisa Belcastro was at a complete loss for how to handle the issue.
The island is home to former President Barack Obama and many other prominent figures and has quite the financial backing but she claims they don’t have housing for 50 more people and the migrants must “move somewhere else.”
Belcastro was asked what are the most difficult challenges when handling this and she responded:
“The difficult challenges are — we have to, at some point in time they [illegals] have to move from here to somewhere else – we cannot, we don’t have the services to take care of 50 immigrants and we certainly don’t have housing. We’re in a housing crisis as we are on this island! We can’t house everyone here that lives here and works here.”
Wow! This Martha’s Vineyard Democrat doesn’t seem very welcoming or progressive.
“We don’t have housing for 50 immigrants.”
Uh, don’t the Obamas have a 10 bedroom mansion there? That will fit half of them.

Soon after this impromptu interview, and less than 24 hours from when the migrants were dropped off at the island, a bus showed up to bring them off the island.
This move by DeSantis and Abbott has gone full mainstream media and these moves are consistently trending across the country. As with many issues the political world is split on the ethics and reasoning behind the move.
DeSantis heralded the move as a needed show of what red states are dealing with “There was no warning on any of this. And all those people in D.C. in New York were beating their chests when Trump was president, saying they were so proud of the sanctuary jurisdictions,” he said.
“And it just shows you, you know, their virtue signaling is a fraud, ok? They are supporting policies that are just frankly indefensible. It is not defensible for a superpower to not have any control over the territory of its country, over the borders of its country,” DeSantis added.
Martha’s Vineyard couldn’t handle 50 illegal immigrants for even 24 hours. They called in the buses and deported them from the island. But I thought left wingers loved diversity? Sad day. pic.twitter.com/qh324FrqZE

“It shouldn’t all fall on a handful of red states, and so they’re now doing it. Now they have to decide, okay, this is a policy you supported — to have an open border. You don’t like it as much when you [get] just a small, small, small amount compared to what these folks have dealt with in Texas,” he concluded.
His November opposition Charlie Crist represented many liberal responses as he urged the Department of Justice to investigate his rivals’ “disgusting and vile” relocation program.
