Whether you agree with it or not, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’s decision to send two planes carrying nearly 50 migrants on Wednesday to Martha’s Vineyard, the tony island playground of the rich off the south shore of Massachusetts, has thrust the issue of illegal immigration into the national spotlight – in a big way.
Needless to say, debate over the move dominated the airwaves, where opinions fell mostly along party lines.
Liberal elites, who support the politicians responsible for our open southern border both at the ballot box and through large political donations, have remained largely insulated from the crisis it has created — until now.
NBC News reported on Friday that DeSantis’ political stunt has divided Venezuelan Americans. The network spoke to advertising executive Max Lefeld, a Venezuelan American and a founding member of the Casa Venezuela Dallas foundation, an organization that provides assistance to asylum-seekers.
“It’s like me taking my trash out and just driving to different areas where I live and just throwing my trash there,” Lefeld said.
NBC used Lefeld’s comparison of asylum seekers to “trash” as the caption on a Twitter post that included the article.
Conservatives were quick to point out how much Lefeld’s comment revealed about the left’s true feelings about migrants.
