    Bexar County Sheriff, Javier Salazar, said he will investigate if the DeSantis Administration “lured” the migrants onto the plane with “false pretenses.”

    “Here is a group of 48 who have already fallen through the roughest times. They're legal residents of our country at this point. I think they were pounced upon. Someone came from a different state, and preyed on the people who were enticing them by promising them an improved life and that is exactly the thing they were seeking,” Salazar said in an audio message that announced the investigation.

    Salazar has previously complained on MSNBC in July this year about how president Joe Biden needs to do more to help with the current border crisis.

    “Mr. President, we're looking for your assistance. While I respect your opinion, what I've heard from other law enforcement officials in my State of Texas has been an absolute absence of Washington, DC. It's true that you've got the whole world to defend and serve. But here in Texas, we're in need of your assistance,” he said.

    Salazar said he'll collaborate closely with legal professionals and advocacy organizations.

    After the arrival of the migrants at Martha's Vineyard, Democrats began propagating the ridiculous idea of DeSantis having “kidnapped” the migrants in order to make them political playthings. Democrat California Gov. Gavin Newsom even called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to conduct an investigation into potential violations.

    “Like millions of Americans, I have been horrified at the images of migrants being shipped on buses and planes across the country to be used as political props,” Newsom wrote on Thursday. “Clearly, transporting families, including children, across state lines under false pretenses is morally reprehensible, but it may also be illegal.”

    “I strongly urge the U.S. Department of Justice (US DOJ) to open an investigation into possible criminal or civil violations of federal law based on this alleged fraudulent scheme,” said the official.

    Reporters were interviewed on Martha's Vineyard near the shelter in which migrants were housed. Immigration attorney Rachel Self also accused DeSantis of “kidnapping” the migrants by sending the migrants to an island on which millionaires go on vacation.

    However, in a press release on Monday in which the Biden administration claimed that the refugees were “left to fend for themselves” in Bexar County, and that the governor allowed them to be in the state's “sanctuary” jurisdiction.

    “Florida gave them an opportunity to seek greener pastures in a sanctuary jurisdiction that offered greater resources for them, as we expected,” the administration declared in an official statement.

    “Unless the MA national guard has abandoned these individuals, they have been provided accommodations, sustenance, clothing, and more options to succeed following their unfair enticement into the United States, unlike the 53 immigrants who died in a truck found abandoned in Bexar County this June,” the statement continued.
