“Ron DeSantis didn’t pay Vertol Systems, Company Inc. $615,000 to fly immigrants from Florida to Massachusetts. He paid Vertol Systems, Company Inc. $615,000 to fly immigrants from TEXAS to Massachusetts. Wait, what? Yes, really. For all his posturing about immigrants being such a thorn in Florida’s side that he needed a $12 million legislative appropriation to ‘deport’ them to other states, he had to go all the way to San Antonio (nearly a thousand miles from Tallahassee) just to find enough immigrants to fill a plane for his stunt. Is that even legal? … one wonders where he got the money to import those immigrants to Florida before exporting them to Massachusetts. The appropriation doesn’t seem to cover that.” (09/17/22)
