Some readers may recall that I expected that DeSantis wouldn't attempt his Martha's Vineyard stunt again any time soon.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A judge ruled Tuesday that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' administration must turn over records relating to flights taking migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard.

This comes as the judge says the DeSantis' administration did not comply with state public records laws, according to CNN.

In mid September, two planes picked up 48 migrants in San Antonio, Texas, and dropped them off in Martha’s Vineyard after a stop at the Bob Sikes Airport in Crestview. Their arrival prompted a frantic response that included humanitarian aid provided by locals and assistance from Massachusetts officials.



Bexar County sheriff certifies that migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard are crime victims, clearing path for special visas

The move clears a pathway for those people to get a special visa to stay in the country that they otherwise would not have received.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar on Thursday certified that 49 migrants who were flown to Martha’s Vineyard by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis last month were victims of a crime. The move clears a pathway for those migrants to get a special visa to stay in the country that they otherwise would not have received.

Rachel Self, a Massachusetts attorney working with the migrants, told radio station WGBH that the move by Salazar is a key part of the migrants’ applications for a “U visa,” which is reserved for victims of crime or people who witnessed a crime. In a statement, Salazar said his office had submitted documents with the federal system “to ensure the migrants’ availability as witnesses during the investigation.”

    Let's forget having him turn over the documents. Just take him into custody and dump him into the Solitary Unit at Sing Sing.

    I find it interesting that presidents have done this for over a decade, and nothing was said. All of a sudden it's a national emergency worthy of a capital offense.
