DeSantis campaign spokeswoman: Biden voters on Martha’s Vineyard should open their summer homes to illegal aliens


President Joe Biden’s supporters on Martha’s Vineyard should open their empty summer homes to accommodate newly arrived illegal aliens, says a spokeswoman for Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) re-election campaign.

This week, DeSantis flew about 50 illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard – a wealthy enclave of liberals and home to former President Obama, who owns a nearly $12 million property on the small island off the coast of Massachusetts.

In response, liberal activists and Democrats have denounced DeSantis for transporting illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard, though they support Biden’s extensive Catch and Release network that brings thousands of border crossings and illegal aliens into American working- and middle-class cities every day.

Christina Pushaw, a spokeswoman for the DeSantis campaign, said Biden voters on Martha’s Vineyard should open their homes β€” often empty except during the summer months β€” to newly arrived illegal aliens.

“Martha’s Vineyard claims to be a ‘sanctuary’ jurisdiction that welcomes illegal aliens,” Pushaw wrote on Twitter. β€œMost of those multi-million dollar mansions are summer houses that are empty most of the year. They can be used to house thousands of illegal migrants. Time to walk the walk, Biden voters.

For example, the Obamas do not primarily live in their vacation home in Martha’s Vineyard. Instead, the family spends most of their time at their primary residence in Washington, DC – an $8.1 million estate in the exclusive Kalorama neighborhood.

On Martha’s Vineyard, the Obama property has 29 acres, a private beach, seven bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms. The residence alone could probably accommodate up to 15 newly arrived illegal aliens, while the acreage could house the remaining 35 illegal aliens in makeshift facilities.

as the New York Times notes that the vast majority of wealthy residents of Martha’s Vineyard are liberals who voted against former President Trump twice β€” in 2016 and 2020.

For example, in 2016, towns in Martha’s Vineyard voted between 65 and 82 percent for Democrat Hillary Clinton against Trump. Then in 2020, voters on the island went between 70 and 88 percent for Biden against Trump.

Despite their support for Democratic candidates, the residents of Martha’s Vineyard are almost completely immune to illegal immigration. The illegal alien population in Massachusetts, totaling nearly 300,000, lives almost exclusively outside the state’s wealthiest regions, such as Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket.
