ONLY IN AMERICA - Invade Our Country, and Somehow You're a Victim: Illegal Immigrants Flown to Martha’s Vineyard by DeSantis Qualify for Crime-Victim Visas; Some of 49 Migrants Flown to Martha’s Vineyard by the State of Florida are Now Able to Legally Work in US

Illegal Immigrants Flown to Martha’s Vineyard by DeSantis Qualify for Crime-Victim Visas:
Some of the illegal immigrants that Florida governor Ron DeSantis flew to Martha’s Vineyard in September 2022 now qualify for crime-victim visas, allowing them to legally work in the U.S.
At least three of the 49 immigrants applied for U-visas last year, claiming to be victims of a crime. They allege DeSantis and other Florida officials tricked them into taking part in the flight operation two years ago with false promises of work and housing. The two charter flights took off from San Antonio, Texas, and made a pit stop in Florida before reaching their final destination at Martha’s Vineyard, an island off the coast of Massachusetts.
Immigration attorney Rachel Self said three of the original group of 49 Venezuelan nationals received “bona fide determinations” for their U-visa applications, meaning they can find jobs and stay in the U.S. without being deported while waiting for their special visas to come through.
“These determinations are one step closer to justice,” Self told the Boston Globe this week. “[They] further underscore that anyone who knows all the facts . . . simply cannot ignore the criminality of the actors.”
More determinations will likely be issued since all 49 immigrants were caught up in the same scheme, she added.
National Review contacted DeSantis’s communications office for comment.
Immediately after the migrant flights, DeSantis took credit for the taxpayer-funded operation. His decision sparked outrage from Democratic lawmakers and caused the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce to declare a “humanitarian crisis.” --->READ MORE HERE

Some of 49 migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard by the state of Florida are now able to legally work in US:
Some of the illegal migrants sent from Florida to Massachusetts may be given the right to work and live in the U.S. as "victims" of "criminal activity."
Forty-nine migrants were flown to Martha's Vineyard in September 2022 by Gov. Ron DeSantis's government in protest of blue states' disregard for mass illegal immigration's effects on southern states.
Some of these illegal migrants were from the state of Florida, and some of them were from Texas. The latter are now being given "U visas" that will allow them legal status and working capacity in the U.S. as victims of potential crimes, their attorney announced.
Sheriff Javier Salazar of Bexar County, Texas, certified that those illegal migrants formerly within his jurisdiction that were flown to Massachusetts are qualified for the visas after an investigation by the county's Organized Crime Division.
Salazar has previously recommended that the Bexar County district attorney bring charges for crimes related to deceptive tactics of transporting the migrants to Martha's Vineyard.
"The Governor of Florida orchestrated the abduction of 49 human beings. The actions of all those involved in this scheme were criminal," attorney Rachel Self accused in a statement following the U visa eligibility announcement. "The Bexar County DA’s inaction in this matter is concerning and cannot be understated." --->READ MORE HERE
