BCSO filing criminal charges after 49 foreign nationals flown from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is not responding after a criminal case was filed over foreign nationals being flown to Martha’s Vineyard.

KSAT-TV reports Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar issued a statement confirming the filing, but few other details are known.

The case stems from the transport of 49 foreign nationals out of San Antonio on a plane in September 2022.

Both DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott have maintained a policy of flying or busing illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, such as Washington, D.C., New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago.

The Associated Press is reporting the state of Florida picked up additional foreign nationals in Texas and flew them to Sacramento on Monday. California Governor Gavin Newsom says he could pursue kidnapping charges against DeSantis.
