Gov. DeSantis Claims Credit , for Sending 2 Planes of Migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. According to a statement DeSantis' office emailed to CNN, the Florida governor says he sent two planes carrying about 50 migrants to Martha's Vineyard on Sept. 14.

Ron DeSantis, via statement. Julian Cyr, who represents Martha's Vineyard, said, "There was no advance notice to anyone in Martha's Vineyard or Massachusetts that these migrants were arriving to my knowledge." . The island scrambled to respond. They essentially set up shelters, the equivalent of a hurricane or Nor'easter. They set that up in a matter of hours and these families received a meal.

Charlie Baker issued a statement. The Baker-Polito Administration is in touch with local officials regarding the arrival of migrants in Martha's Vineyard.

There is nothing that DeSantis won't do, and nobody that he won't hurt, in order to score political points, Manny Diaz, Florida Democratic Chair, via statement.
