Immigrants are questioning efforts to entice them onto a flight that landed on Martha’s Vineyard island. A political operation concocted by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to resolve America’s border crisis involved sending migrants to an island, resulting in them not being able to make it to their court hearings. These migrants were misinformed and deceived as a strategy to resolve the overstressed immigration system. To elaborate on the process, a strange woman named Perla gained the trust of newly homeless migrants throughout San Antonio by promising them security, before sending them on flights to the island of Martha’s Vineyard. The migrants recruited by Perla state in interviews that they were misled into signing documents after she lured them in with offerings of food, transportation, and employment from homeless shelters.
However, the Florida Governor has declared that all the migrants voluntarily got onto the plane that brought them to the island, and that they were no coerced into anything that they did. His statement contradicts with Perla’s actions as she promised to help these migrants assimilate after bribing them with gift cards to sign waivers that they were not able to read as they were not fully translated into the Spanish language. He defended his actions by claiming that his program provided these migrants with a “fresh start in a sanctuary state”, completely dismissing the fact that his actions were deceptive, and he made them miss their court hearings. The migrants were enraged at the betrayal, but fortunately, lawyers nearby worked to make sure that they were not persecuted for missing their immigration appointments and could still pursue asylum claims.
