DeSantis flew migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and the Texas sheriff says they were criminal victims
Texas’s Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar is investigating potential cases of criminal restraint with migrant flights.
Texas’s sheriff has verified that those flown from Texas to Massachusetts qualify for a special visa because they were victims of a crime.
Decades of migrants who were transported to Martha’s Vineyard from Texas have been certified as victims of a crime, according to Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar, who made the announcement on Thursday.
We are looking into this issue as potential unlawful restraint, Salazar stated in a statement, “based upon the reports of migrants being taken from Bexar County under false pretenses.”
We have submitted documentation through the federal system to ensure the migrants’ availability as witnesses during the investigation.

The Democratic Party and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for sending 48 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, a posh seaside community off the coast of Massachusetts, calling it a kind of “human trafficking.”
Salazar recently declared the start of a criminal inquiry into the Texas-bound flights.
Salazar is not, nonetheless, alone himself. Political rivals at all levels of government are outraged by DeSantis’ enthusiasm for relocating illegal immigrants to more liberal “sanctuary cities” in the northern states.
