Martha’s Vineyard Group Fundraises Off Helping Migrants Who Were Only In Town 24 Hours

The Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation set up a GoFundMe for the 50 migrants sent to the island by Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as part of his program relocating illegal migrants to sanctuary cities.

The migrants stayed on Martha’s Vineyard for about 24 hours before Massachusetts called in the national guard and relocated them to a military base on Cape Cod. The online fundraiser, which raised more than $38,000, claimed the migrants hadn’t been informed of where they were going and were “lured” by the promise of jobs; as originally reported by Townhall.

“Martha’s Vineyard is a community of open-hearted individuals that view these migrants as people, not political pawns,” the GoFundMe page read. “However, the island is a resort community with only 20,000 year-round residents, and it already faces a shortage of affordable housing and off-season jobs.”

“Please join me in donating to the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, which can quickly distribute funds to the neediest organizations. This action by DeSantis is a cruel ruse that manipulates families seeking a better life—but we can help to provide support,” it said.

Although the migrants had all been relocated by Friday morning, the fundraiser is still collecting money for the groups that assisted the migrants.

The fundraiser’s organizer, Sarah Goulet, owns a New York communications company and was married on Martha’s Vineyard in 2018. Her family owns a $1.6 million home on the island, according to Townhall.

Goulet did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  1. Once again, De Santis brilliantly exposes the left’s hyperbolic hypocrisy. We get to view their pandering BLM, LGBTQ, immigrants and refugees welcome signs while they meltdown over 50 illegals coming to one of the richest islands in the world. They’re so Racist and Xenophobic that they call in the National Guard to remove the immigrants because they can’t even stand them on their mansion filled island for 48 hours. And they call De Santis a “human trafficker” over FIFTY illegals but are silent on the thousands Biden has flown, in secret flights, and dropped off all over the U.S., or the 2 million he has let walk in since he was installed as President. This alone should be enough to vote out every single lying, hypocritical, “elite” Democrat in November.

    And, oh yeah, there’s out of control inflation, Democrat caused exploding crime all across the U.S., selling our strategic oil reserves to China while simultaneously destroying our fossil fuel industry, continuing to destroy jobs and lives with vaccine mandates, and killing over a hundred thousand Americans every year with the Chinese made fentanyl flooding across our open border. And they continue to print money endlessly for a “Green New Deal” here that we see collapsing Europe and send unaccountable billions to Ukraine to fund a proxy war with Russia that we didn’t want, didn’t vote on and can’t win. Did I miss anything?

  2. Did you miss anything? Sure! But what you wrote was brilliant.

    Yeah, the hypocrisy, corruption and pure satanic evil does go on and on an on…
