Posts make false claims about Martha's Vineyard, migrants

Published on 23/09/2022 at 22:51

Online posts claim the island of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, is a designated "sanctuary" for undocumented migrants, and that a group flown there by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has since been "deported." This is inaccurate; none of the towns on the resort island are sanctuary cities, and the migrants have been relocated to the nearby Joint Base Cape Cod.
