Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis speaks at a press conference in Rockledge, Florida.
Biden’s stimulus may have helped pay for DeSantis’ political stunt to fly migrants to Massachusetts.
DeSantis stepped up his campaign to troll liberals ahead of a possible 2024 presidential run.
The stunt sparked outrage among immigration advocates and Democrats.
President Joe Biden’s stimulus was so large that it may have had an unintended consequence: helping Fl. Gov. Ron DeSantis finance a political stunt to fly migrants to a wealthy, liberal-leaning slice of Massachusetts.
The Washington Post reported on Friday that Florida may have used the interest accrued on the $8.8 billion it received from the federal government under the stimulus to pay for a pair of flights that dropped off around 50 Venezuelan migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
