A video released by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) shows that the migrants who were relocated from Florida to California were grateful and happy with their decision. Despite being accused of kidnapping and misleading them by the Democrats, the migrants confirmed that the relocation was voluntary, safe, and they were treated well.
The video shows the migrants happily signing documents, taking selfies, and expressing gratitude to Florida authorities for the flight and accommodations. One man can be seen saying, “We made it to California! Thank God!” on the tarmac.

Despite the evidence proving the migrants’ consent, Democrat Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, has accused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis of kidnapping the migrants and is considering filing charges against the state. This outrage is nothing but a political stunt to undermine a successful relocation program meant to alleviate the border crisis.
The relocation program is part of Florida’s efforts to manage the current border crisis. The first relocation flight, which was sent to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, caused a firestorm of kidnapping accusations by left-leaning mayors in El Paso, Texas, and Denver, Colorado. However, the consent forms signed by the migrants show that the relocation was a voluntary choice.
The FDEM statement confirms that the migrants’ relocation was entirely voluntary, and they indicated with verbal and written consent that they wanted to go to California. The contractor ensured their safety, that they were sent to a third-party NGO, and Catholic Charities, which is funded by the federal government.
It’s no surprise that Democrats are attacking Florida while remaining silent on other border states’ relocation programs, notably those run by left-leaning mayors. Florida is providing a necessary solution to the current border crisis by preventing overcrowding and helping redistribute people to different parts of the country.
.@RonDeSantis you small, pathetic man.
This isn't Martha's Vineyard.

In conclusion, the video evidence of the migrants’ consent to relocate from Florida to California proves that there was no kidnapping and that Governor Ron DeSantis has acted on the side of law and order to protect the American people. The Democrats’ baseless accusations must stop, and it’s time to focus on finding real solutions to the ongoing border crisis.
