Gary Varvel is dishonest and contemptible. No one was “deported,” figuratively or otherwise. The lame duck Republican governor of Massachusetts offered the asylum seekers the option of relocating to a nearby military base, which has been used in the recent past to provide support and accommodations for Americans displaced from their homes due to such events as hurricanes and COVID precautions. All of them reportedly accepted the offer – - which isn’t too surprising, because Martha’s Vineyard isn’t very accessible and would isolate the asylum seekers from their ethnic communities on the mainland. Massachusetts responded with simple human decency, a concept so foreign in practice to Trumpartisans like Varvel that they have been driven to delusion and outright dishonesty
Varvel is trying to out-lie and out-stupid H. Payne. And he may well be succeeding.
This is both dishonest and stupid!
( Apparently two qualities that Varvel feels a compulsion to display! )
More lies from the Varvel Universe, at the RNC orders.
This is really dishonest. They weren’t deported. That’s what Abbott and DeSantis did. The asylum applicants (who are in the US legally) were dropped off on an island with no provisions and no warning. The natives on Martha’s Vineyard took them in and cared for them until the Republican governor of Massachusetts could arrange for better living conditions and care on a state-run military base.
They’re victims of state-sponsored human trafficking.
This is exactly what happened, paid for with my tax dollars by the military national guard.
Hypocrisy, thy name is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,all those OhSoCaring virtue signaling liberal$$$$$$$$$$ (MIMBY)
No, I did not know that – well whattaya know! I do, however, know that the immigrants got hoodwinked into a trip to Martha’s Vineyard by a thug governor who is currently under investigation by a Texas sheriff and has been hit by a class action lawsuit.
1/6 – Never forget.
Isn’t it great when a cruel political stunt provides a cartoon for the likes Varvel and other ill informed right wing political comic drawers? Makes it all worth it…
Immigrants are good as long as they go to conservative states but never send them to places like California or Chicago.
Deported? Good for you, next time try entering this country legally and see how it goes.
Former toxic waste dump
So I haven’t heard anything since they were sent to Concentration Camp Cape Cod by President Xi Biden.
Why are you whining? You would have had your kids taken away from you and you would have been sent back to Central America or Ukraine if the orange baboon was still on watch.
Being moved 30 miles away to another facility that has more resources and ability to help isn’t “deportation,” Varvel, you moron.
This sickens me. The people of Martha’s Vineyard HELPED, but you have to LIE and pretend that they’re as immoral as YOU are.
Migrants make the treacherous journey just to survive and cross the border, some dying, raped, and abused, dealing with the ruthless cartels, and yet DeSantis is accused of being immoral and cruel for sending them in nice climate controlled transports to a luxury island. And now these illegals are suing him for that??? This is what’s sickening, the continued hypocrisy of the democrats and their failed border policy. So they got moved 30 miles away to another facility that has more resources and ability to help, it’ was a far better experience then the one they went through to get to the border.
Deported means forceably removed from the country. But if you want deported to mean taken to a facility for housing and integration we can start deporting a lot more people.
But the MVer shouted “Te amo! Te amo!” as the bus carried him away from the island.
yea…only that t-shirt… and kindness…and help…and clothing…and shelter…and safety …and hope from the locals…oh…and lies..and deceit…. and being used as human pawns from repluselican’s in texas and flordia
The migrants sent to Martha’s Vineyard by Ron De Santis (himself the grandson of Italian immigrants) were send to the military base in Cape Cod because they were better equipped to deal with these migrants seeking asylum than the facilities in Martha’s Vineyard. While DeSantis were foisting these migrants on deep blue MA to score brownie points with the MAGA base. Community groups were aiding these migrants until they were brought to the base to be looked after. As usual, Gary, you’re making it more complicated than it needs to be.
He doesn’t look a bit Venezuelan.
