Citizens for Sanity, a conservative nonprofit who consistently poke fun at the left, took out a newspaper ad to mock the citizens of Martha’s Vineyard, a liberal island sanctuary, who were quick to expel 50 migrants after they were dropped off to the community on orders from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
The ad was run in the Providence Journal, a major Rhode Island daily newspaper, and imitates the wealthy residents of the island, claiming to support immigration. However the ad quickly explains that the illegal immigrants coming from the southern border are not welcome in the Massachusetts community.
“Our beautiful island home of Martha’s Vineyard is very small and the mansions have very expensive artwork, Persian rugs, and unchlorinated saltwater swimming pools that are very difficult to clean,” the ad explains. “For these reasons, we cannot accept any undocumented Americans at this time and respectfully ask they be sent to a working class community they can enrich with their global diversity and romantic poverty.”
The mockery was triggered after the island’s residents swiftly removed the migrants flown there on September 14. After just one night on the island, the migrants were bused out to the military’s Joint Base Cape Cod in Massachusetts, after the state’s governor, Charlie Baker (R) declared an emergency and deployed the national guard.
DeSantis and fellow GOP Governors Greg Abbott, of Texas, and Doug Ducey, of Arizona, have been sending thousands of illegal immigrants, who they claim voluntarily sign up for the trip, to cities such as New York, Washington and Chicago. Each of these heavily liberal cities have given themselves the moniker of “sanctuary cities,” but have repeatedly cried foul, claiming they are overburdened by the arrival of a few hundred migrants. Some have gone so far as to declare states of emergencies, which has led many Republicans and moderates to point out the hypocrisy of the sanctuary city leaders.
More than two million migrants have swarmed across the Mexican border since Biden took office and rescinded many of the border security policies of his predecessor, former President Trump.
Citizens For Sanity says that its mission is “to return common sense to America, to highlight the importance of logic and reason, and to defeat “wokeism” and anti-critical thinking ideologies that have permeated every sector of our country and threaten the very freedoms that are foundational to the American Dream.”
