Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has suggested the possibility of redirecting Haitian migrants who arrive in his state to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts during a recent interview with Dana Loesch.

An atmosphere of turmoil has gripped Haiti, with the nation grappling with widespread gang violence and a precarious political situation.

In response to the intensifying situation, the United States has advised all American citizens to leave the country and has initiated the evacuation of the U.S. Embassy.

Additionally, a contingent of Marines has been deployed to the embassy.

“We do have our transport program also that’s going to be operational. Haitians land in the Florida Keys, their next stop very well may be Martha’s Vineyard.” DeSantis said.

“Look, Dana, I’ve got to defend my state. I’ve got enough issues just dealing with people fleeing from blue states moving into Florida.” he continued.

In recent weeks, DeSantis has taken action to allocate more resources to the southern regions of the state in order to address the possibility of migration from Haiti.

Last week, an announcement was made regarding the deployment of over 200 state law enforcement officers and approximately 50 National Guard members to South Florida and the Keys.

This deployment will be accompanied by a fleet of aircraft and ships, totaling more than a dozen.

According to DeSantis, it is crucial for Florida authorities to intercept boats transporting Haitian migrants before they reach the state.

He emphasized that returning them becomes a straightforward task if they are apprehended at sea.

According to his statement, if the migrants arrive in Florida, he is unable to repatriate them to Haiti without obtaining proper authorization.

Last week, Florida state officials made an announcement regarding the interception of a boat carrying 25 Haitian migrants by Florida Fish and Wildlife officers.
