On Friday, 16 migrants arrived at a church in Sacramento. Migrants continue to arrive in California from the southern border with Mexico.
What was unusual about this is they were flown in by New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. No one has taken responsibility for flying them to California.
They were Venezuelan and Colombian migrants.
This has brought criticism and concern from several prominent leaders.
Governor Newsom said in a statement:
"We are working closely with the Mayor's office, along with local and nonprofit partners to ensure the people who have arrived are treated with respect and dignity, and get to their intended destination as they pursue their immigration cases."
Sacramento ACT president Reverand Efrem Smith said in a statement:
“What has occurred recently with the deceiving drop off of our undocumented brothers and sisters into the Sacramento area grieves my heart. This political polarizing act is heartbreaking and yet I rejoice that I am part of a movement that brings the love of God and goodwill upon the injustices and political wickedness that impacts our vulnerable brothers and sisters.”
In a statement, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said:
“Whoever is behind this must answer the following: Is there anything more cruel than using scared human beings to score cheap political points?”
“Sacramento represents the best of American values. We always welcome ‘the tired, the poor, and the huddled masses,’ and we always will.”
At this point, no one knows who sent the migrants.
Some may suspect it could be from two Republican governors.
Then Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard. In addition, his State has passed a law allowing him to transport migrants to other locations. Funding was included in this bill.
This video suggests the migrants were flown in and paid for by Florida.
Who do you think flew the migrants to Sacramento?
