(FOX NEWS) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis dismissed criticism of him flying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, claiming his political opponents have ignored similar initiatives from the White House.
DeSantis spoke at an event in Florida Tuesday during which he took questions from the press.
DeSantis was asked by a reporter to comment on harsh criticism from across the aisle accusing him of “human trafficking” for flying approximately 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, a famous stronghold of wealthy Democrats.
DeSantis added that the only reason his critics are addressing the issue now is because of the Martha’s Vineyard flights.
The Florida governor claimed the treatment of migrants at the border under President Biden’s administration has been atrocious.
“I’m sorry, those migrants were being treated horribly by Biden,” DeSantis said. “They were hungry, homeless, they had no opportunity at all. The state of Florida […] offered transport to sanctuary jurisdictions because it’s our view that — one, the border should be secured, and we want to have Biden reinstitute policies like ‘Remain in Mexico’ and making sure that people aren’t overwhelming.”
