Migrants who were flown from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, under a new program by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sued DeSantis, a Republican, and other state officials Tuesday, alleging they were victims of fraud for political purposes.

In addition to seeking damages, they are also asking the court to block DeSantis and others named in the lawsuit from “inducing immigrants to travel across state lines by fraud and misrepresentation.”.

Immigrants gather with their belongings outside St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Edgartown, Mass., on Martha's Vineyard, on Sept. 14.

Taryn Fenske, a spokesperson for DeSantis, said in a statement that the migrants chose to board the flights.

"The transportation of the immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard was done on a voluntary basis," Fenske said.

The group also posted images of what it said were misleading brochures distributed to migrants to entice them to board the planes.

DeSantis has insisted that no laws were broken, and he has pledged to continue his administration’s $12 million program to relocate migrants. »
