The Biden administration, the Delaware governor’s office, and the mainstream media were ready Tuesday to respond to Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis flying more illegal immigrants to the East Coast, this time to President Joe Biden’s home, but the moment never came.
Far-Left activists generated buzz online Monday night by insinuating that DeSantis was going to send migrants to Biden’s home because one of the airplanes that was used to transport illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard was flying from San Antonio, making a quick stop in Florida, and then flying to a small airport near Biden’s home in Delaware.

However, the plane never came, and no illegal immigrants arrived in Delaware as part of Florida’s “relocation program.”
DeSantis played his cards close to his vest when he declined to answer questions earlier in the day about the flight and whether more illegal immigrants were being flown to the East Coast.
“He didn’t tell anyone and purposely left people in the dark. So technically the media, the Democrats, everyone got punked who decided to heed some s*** on Twitter instead of waiting for confirmation from the governor’s office,” a source close to DeSantis told NBC News. “The entire point of this is to put a spotlight on the border. It’s what the governor has said.”
DeSantis torched top Democrats during a press conference Tuesday for falsely suggesting that he had engaged in “kidnapping” or “human trafficking,” saying they were dead silent when Biden flew illegal immigrants all over the country.
“When Biden is flying these people all over the fruited plain in the middle of the night, I didn’t hear a peep out of those people,” DeSantis said. “I didn’t hear a peep.”
“I haven’t heard a peep about all the people that have been told by Biden you can just come in, and they’re going, they’re being abused by the cartels, they’re drowning in the Rio Grande,” he continued. “You had 50 that died in some shed in Texas. I heard no outrage about any of that. I haven’t heard outrage about all the fentanyl that’s come across the border that’s killing Americans in record numbers. I don’t hear outrage about the criminal aliens that have gotten through and have then victimized people — not only in Florida, but all throughout the country. I didn’t hear any outrage about that. The only thing I hear them getting upset about is you have 50 that end up in Martha’s Vineyard, then they get really upset.”
