Texas sheriff accuses DeSantis of preying upon migrants [Video]


  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis charted two planes to fly Venezuelan migrants from San Antonio to Florida and onward to Martha’s Vineyard.
  • Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar accused the DeSantis administration of preying upon the migrants and luring them with false promises of a better future.
  • DeSantis responded that they only provided a better opportunity for migrants who were left to fend for themselves in Bexar County.

Last week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) flew 50 migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts in an effort to draw attention to the border crisis. The move has since angered many, including the island’s locals, Democrats, and Texas authorities.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar (D) announced that his office will be working with lawyers and advocacy groups to open up a criminal investigation.

“Here we have 48 people that are already on hard times. They are here legally in our country at that point,” Salazar stated. “I believe that they were preyed upon. Somebody came from out of state, preyed upon these people, lured them with promises of a better life, which is absolutely what they were looking for.”

Venezuelan migrants boarded two charter flights from San Antonio to Florida and onward to Martha’s Vineyard.

DeSantis said that his office provided migrants with “an opportunity to seek greener pastures in a sanctuary jurisdiction that offered greater resources for them,” instead of being abandoned in Bexar County “to fend for themselves.”

His office’s statement read, “They have been provided accommodations, sustenance, clothing, and more options to succeed following their unfair enticement into the United States, unlike the 53 immigrants who died in a truck found abandoned in Bexar County this June.” The statement referred to the deaths of 53 migrants who were found locked in a San Antonio truck earlier this year.

Still, the island’s city leaders and homeless advocates were surprised by the sudden arrival of the migrants. Harbor Homes helped shore up resources to care for the migrants.

The shelter’s executive director, Sue Diverio, told Fox News Digital last week that they are used to “dealing with immigration populations.” But a plane landing “puts a different level of crisis intervention into it” due to the “unexpected arrival of refugees.”

Democrats accused DeSantis of playing with people’s lives to earn political points. Others described the move as illegal and some even called it human trafficking.

According to the DeSantis administration, they informed the migrants of their destination and also gave them the choice to decline “multiple” times, with some indeed declining. They added that they provided hotels, showers, haircuts, and meals for a few days before the trip.

They added that they did not give false promises of jobs in Martha’s Vineyard and that they simply informed them about the benefits and services that sanctuary states commonly offer.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) also accused DeSantis of kidnapping and even wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland to ask if the Florida governor could face charges. Critics pointed out that in 2006, Newsom, who was then mayor of San Francisco, bussed thousands of homeless people out of the state.

  1. Sheriff Salazar
    As an officer of the law HOW CAN YOU SAY THOSE PEOPLE WERE HERE LEGALLY. That one statement shows your prejudice and faulty thinking. As a Texas resident you should know the effects of illegals on the local economy. It should be shared by the whole country not just a few states. Governor DeSantis, Abbot and Deucy are doing the correct thing. Mr Biden did the same but he did not give them a choice. He flew them in the dead of night to communities of his choosing— mostly Republican states and cities. I think you must be one of the ignorant liberal fools we have seen on the rise since 2020.

I have not said this before!!!!!! So please publish my comment.

  3. Good for DeSantis. Government doesn’t help Texas, or Florida. Government only want the illegals to allowed to USA, but expects them to stay there. What are the Demons worried about? They just want the illegals to be on the Southern states to vote illegally, but the don’t won’t these to come to their town. Sounds crooked, but normal fir Demon party.

  4. This doesn’t make sense. I was under the impression that the biden maladministration shipped the ILLEGALS (Sheriff Salazar) to Florida before Governor DeSantis decided to move them along to the Socialist Republic of Massachusetts.
    Why would DeSantis be going to Texas looking for illegals. Doesn’t he have enough of his own?

  5. That sheriff is a demorat idiot! biden should be investigated for not upholding the law and shipping illegals to states at night so no one sees.

    1. Where did the Demoncrats dig up this dimwit lawbreaking sheriff from? Is he going to investigate the pretender in chief for flying illegals to states without any notification?

      Govenor Abbot needs to fire this lawbreaking attention whore for failure to stop illegals for violating our soverignity.

      1. This Pig is a typical Dem stooge. The Dems seek out and recruit those with mental disorders and put them in positions where they can do the most harm to our country. It is all part of their plan to sell out our country for their dreams of power and wealth.

  6. Maybe,just maybe someone needs to remind people that”the horses rear end”that is supposed to be making AMERICA better is about as worthless as teats on a boar.The border states do NOT have to put up with this democRAT”revenge of the NERDS”.

  7. Oh what, the sheriff is accusing DeSantis of preying upon migrants the way migrants are preying upon our citizens and raping and murdering and molesting them and stealing from them!? What a hypocrite, tell the migrants to go back to their crappy third world countries and RUIN THEM and RUN THEM into the ground and stop ruining ours with their criminal bull crap. What a hypocrite of a sheriff, to accuse DeSantis of preying on the migrants is like the pot calling the kettle black, if the migrants don’t want to be prey TELL THEM TO STOP BEING PREDATORS!!!!!!! You liberals want to sell out white America and see ALL white men overdose on opioids and being “put in their place” for all the supposed colonialism and imperialism, who started mass colonialism and imperialism more than any other country the freaking Hispanics!!!! So I’m sick and tired of it, and the Mexicans and Central Americans and South Americans murdered WAY more Native Americans than white people EVER did, to the point of GENOCIDE. ALL PEOPLES are guilty of atrocity, ALL OF THEM, PERIOD. So to accuse DeSantis of one thing and to give a free pass to all the ILLEGAL ILL BRED bastards of other countries to come here and rape and murder and thieve is total B.S. hypocrisy that only a blatant latent liberal idiot would ever come up with.
