California Governor Gavin Newsom sent a letter to Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting that they investigate the “kidnapping” charges for those involved in the attempt by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis , to send illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
It’s a letter that has to be judged twice to believe it’s real, and that Newsom really thought he had a good argument.
The California governor announced his “formal request” on Twitter, calling for an “immediate investigation” into Florida’s “inhumane efforts.”
“Several individuals transported to Martha’s Vineyard have claimed that a recruiter induced them to accept the tour offer based on false statements that they would be transported to Boston and given quick access to work permits,” Newsom claimed.
“I urge the US Department of Justice to investigate whether the alleged fraudulent incitement would support the kidnapping allegations under relevant state laws.”

The The Bharat Express News reports that Republican governors of red states have urged “passengers to sign waivers that the free travel is voluntary.”
In addition, Christina Pushaw, DeSantis’ rapid response director, has tweeted images of Democrats in the Florida legislature voting for a budget that had earmarked $12 million to transport “unauthorized aliens” out of the state.
“Almost every Dem voted for it. Now they call [Governor Ron DeSantis] a criminal for persevering,” Pushaw tweeted.
Yes, you read that right.

DeSantis reportedly sent two planes full of illegal immigrants to deep-blue Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday.
The wave of migrants (50 of them) from Central America invading the predominantly white, progressive area prompted local authorities to declare an “unexpected urgent humanitarian situation”.
A handful of migrants involved in the flights claimed they were told they were being flown to Boston instead.
DeSantis is just so good at this. Always progressive and plays this to perfection. master class. https://t.co/k6dw9h5LWK

It wasn’t a ‘kidnapping’ when Biden did it
Gavin Newsom’s trick pleading kidnapping charges for DeSantis is more of an indication that he’s just reacting emotionally to the situation than he has a solid legal argument.
Either that or the Bryl cream starts seeping into his brain.
As absurd as the argument may be, would it surprise you if Garland, one of the most politically motivated AGs in the history of the Justice Department, actually launched an investigation?
Funny, though, that neither Newsom nor Garland spat angrily when President Biden flew illegal immigrants to New York state airports.
TBEN reported in June that the Biden administration had increased the number of migrant flights to New York — which has been happening since at least August 2021 — with an additional airport being used to handle the overflow.
A local reporter shared the video, captioning it with a disclaimer that read, “Officers say flights are legal under US immigration law.”

An article in the New York Post quoted an immigration and customs authorities as claiming flights were underway at airports across the country.
These “children” and their adult companions are so poor that they have walked thousands/hundreds of miles for a better life. How cruel is it to settle them in America’s richest place? Isn’t that the dream? Why do you hate kids, Gavin? https://t.co/lOEbLHXKGJ

Strange that it wasn’t a “kidnapping” when Biden did it, but the second DeSantis is sending illegal immigrants to an uber-rich playground where most of them could have easily been housed in Barack Obama’s mansion, liberals are in complete panic.
