Florida’s Republican governor made moves to help illegal immigrants get information on how to receive taxpayer-funded housing assistance, receive social security cards, and join public schools.
Governor Ron Desantis, despite claiming to be an America First advocate, shipped illegal immigrants deeper into the country in a controversial political stunt last week.
Desantis’ office confirmed the illegal foreigners were given brochures that informed them of benefits they could receive after the Republican governor sent them on a plant to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.
Tony Fenske, the communications director under Desantis, told Florida’s Voice News every illegal alien was given the packet which provided details on how to receive a variety of benefits and services.
The brochure, written in English and Spanish, explains:
“During the first 90 days after a refugees arrival in Massachusetts resettlement agencies provide basic needs support including:
– assistance with housing
– food and other basic necessities
– clothing, and
– transportation to job interviews and job training
– assistance in applying for social security cards
– registering children for school
– using public transportation, facilities, and services
– community and cultural orientation”

Desantis’ illegal immigration stunt may have gotten positive news coverage from right-wing media ultimately backfired on the governor.
Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate questioned why Gov. Desantis is supportive of moving immigrants “further inland.” Lake, speaking with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, vowed to declare a “border invasion” on day one, should she be elected in November.
“My plan is the most bold, aggressive plan on the border. We’re going to secure the border. We’re going to call it what it is, issue a declaration of invasion on day one, get troops on the border in the form of our National Guard,” the Arizona America first candidate began.
“We’re going to stop people from coming over and we’re going to stop the cartels from having control of our border. I don’t like it as a mother and I know no Arizonan likes it that we are the pipeline for the most dangerous, deadly drug this country has ever seen – called fentanyl,” Lake added.
