Martha’s Vineyard Shelter Coordinator’s Reply To Migrants Arriving Goes Viral: ‘They Have To’ Go ‘Somewhere Else’

Remarks from Lisa Belcastro, the coordinator for Martha’s Vineyard homeless shelter Harbor Homes, went viral Thursday after she was asked about 50 illegal immigrants arriving on the island.

Belcastro’s remarks come after Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis  sent the illegal immigrants to the island off the coast of Massachusetts on Wednesday.

“Yes, Florida can confirm the two planes with illegal immigrants that arrived in Martha’s Vineyard today were part of the state’s relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations,” an official for DeSantis’ office said in a statement. “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 through their designation as ‘sanctuary states’ and support for the Biden Administration’s open border policies.”

“In this past legislative session the Florida Legislature appropriated $12 million to implement a program to facilitate the transport of illegal immigrants from this state consistent with federal law,” the official added.

The 50 illegal immigrants landing on the small island, where ultrawealthy progressives like former President Barack Obama live, sent the political Left into meltdown mode, with some falsely claiming that DeSantis had created “an ethnic cleansing program.”

Millions of illegal immigrants have poured into the U.S. under President Joe Biden, particularly into southern states, but the media and the political Left have shown less interest in addressing the humanitarian and national security crisis that has erupted under Biden.

When Belcastro was asked Thursday about what the “most difficult challenges” were that the island faced from the arrival of the 50 illegal immigrants, she responded: “The difficult challenges are, we have, at some point in time they have to move from here to somewhere else.”

“We cannot, we don’t have the services to take care of 50 immigrants,” she continued. “And we certainly don’t have housing. We’re in a housing crisis as we are on this island. And we don’t, we can’t house everyone here that lives here and work here. We don’t have housing for 50 more people.”
