Immigrants as political pawns

About 50 migrants arrived by plane in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., Wednesday on flights paid for by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and that originated in San Antonio, Texas.

The migrants touched down at about 3:15 p.m. local time. Later Wednesday, a spokesperson for DeSantis sent a statement to NPR and other news outlets confirming that the migrants were transported by Florida under a state program that was funded by the legislature earlier this year. The statement reads in part: “States like Massachusetts, New York and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country by incentivizing illegal immigration.”

“Conservatives” are using immigrants as political pawns to win points with constituents. It is disgusting and immoral. And others who cheer such a stunt need to have their own motives and hearts checked. This is not how Christ and his followers behave when it comes to the least of these.
