Migrants File Class-Action Lawsuit Against Ron DeSantis

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) by a group of migrants who were transported from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard last week.

The suit alleges that the move was “cruelty akin to what they fled in their home country” of Venezuela.

The lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Massachusetts, also names the state’s transportation secretary as a defendant.

“Defendants manipulated them, stripped them of their dignity, deprived them of their liberty, bodily autonomy, due process and equal protection under law, and impermissibly interfered with the Federal Government’s exclusive control over immigration in furtherance of an unlawful goal and a personal political agenda,” the suit reads.

However, DeSantis’s camp says that the relocations were “voluntary.” The governor’s office provided a copy of consent forms allegedly signed by the migrants, with “Massachusetts” listed as the final destination.

“The immigrants were homeless, hungry, and abandoned – and these activists didn’t care about them then,” said Taryn Feske, DeSantis’s communications director.

“Florida’s program gave them a fresh start in a sanctuary state and these individuals opted to take advantage of chartered flights to Massachusetts. It was disappointing that Martha’s Vineyard called in the Massachusetts National Guard to bus them away from the island within 48 hours.”

    Why are they not filing this suit against the Biden Administration that initally sent them to Florida? Florida is NOT a border state. How did migrants from Venezuela end up in Florida? Someone sent them there from the southern border they walked across. That would be the start point of the inhumane teatment wouldn’t it?

    1. Enswida Roflox-Musci says:

      Tell me about it. First of all , they are illegals who have no right to bein this country. Secondly, since they are illegals, they have no right to file any lawsuit against any American and thirdly, why not file a suit against Biden administration who allow these illegals to be transported to our country which is against our immigration policies. These actions of their lefties are all for this coming November election. How criminal is this.

      1. George says:

        They cant sue anyone. They entered this country illegally and have no rights in this country. Good luck to all the lawyers who had dollar signs in their eyes.

        1. Jerry C. says:

          Unfortunately, the Supreme Court decided many years ago that everyone on U.S. soil is covered by the Constitution, citizen, legal alien, and illegal alien, alike.

  2. Judy says:

    you know that these illegal immigrants may have signed this law suit, but the liberal Communist Dems told them to do it. What do people not understand….these people are in our country illegally and have no rights. These evil people will do anything to bankrupt our country. Do NOT ever Vote for a Dem/Communist or Rino ever again..

    1. Jack Kaplan says:

      You are so blinded by your far rightRepublican criminal ex president that the Republican Party is the one that is a real threat to democracy.
      You do remember that, don’t you.

      1. Everready says:

        I see the home ran out of your meds and left the gate open now get back take your meds and include extra strong TDS pills! Or are you just a total America hating liberal fkn democrat MORON !!

  3. Ty says:

    These illegal immigrants have no legal protection in the United States because they are not
    Legal citizen of the United States. These lawyers and judges should be thrown out of the USA for wasting taxpayers money. Grow a set of balls and treat these illegal criminals for what they are criminals. We don’t support these illegal criminals if they can’t come here legally they have no say about anything in the United States. Sick and tired of taxpayers hard earned money wasted on people who can’t follow our laws. They need to be exported immediately . Sick of Democrats time to export them also. Let’s go Brandon S/H

  4. Kirk says:

    How did those migrants get the money to file suit? How would they even know whom to contact to file a suit so quickly? It makes more sense that someone that’s upset with DeSantis initiated this suit. And finally since when are individuals that are not citizens allowed to file suit against tax paying US citizens?

  5. John says:

    Don’t you get it. This was a sick political stunt. They were lied to and left on the side of the road like trash.. These are real people. I’ll bet every one of you has an ancestor that came here from another country seeking a better life.

    1. Rattlerjake says:

      And as is typical of you worthless leftists, you fail to distinguish between legal immigrants and illegal aliens who are breaking our laws.

    2. Andrew says:

      Not illegally.

    3. douglas colbert says:

      Hey John, are you referring to when Biden dumped them in Florida?

  6. Elizabeth says:

    I am afraid that what everyone is saying is true. These people are in our country illegally and have no rights here. Such a ridiculous case should be thrown out immediately rather than waste our tax dollars on it. I don’t understand how these people think they can enter our country illegally and think they have rights. After all they could have been deported instead of being sent to a sanctuary state. They should shut up and be thankful just to be here !

    1. Andrew says:

      Equal protection under the law? They broke our laws by crossing the border illegally.

  7. George says:

    Let them file it. That way they will be able to find them to deport them when the red wave takes over.

  8. Andrew says:

    Keep sending them DeSantis. It’s working.

  9. Fb111 says:

    I gotta agree with Kirk! Who put the idea they could sue into their minds? Who is representing them in this suit? Answer these two questions, and you will find a Leftist lawyer who is probably being paid by the “government” to file this suit! They were so happy to be in Martha’s Vineyard when they first got off the planes, now, since the Elitists have ejected them from Paradise, they’re claiming worse treatment than they got in Venezuela! Sounds to me like the Vineyardites are the ones who should be sued for false advertising, failing to honor their own signs welcoming immigrants to the community!

    The evil sickness of the commiecrats is spread easily to illegals–they dont want them in their mansions–Obama should welcome them to his mansion!!!!!!
