The local residents of the posh island playground of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, are experiencing the sweet sorrow of bidding “Adios” to the fifty Venezuelan migrants who landed at their island sanctuary, last week, courtesy of Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.  Less than 48 hours after arriving, with hope their hearts and an island brochure in their hands, the unexpected newcomers were quickly shuffled off to Joint Base Cape Cod by order of the governor and under tight military guard.  One departing migrant told the Martha’s Vineyard Times that he wished he could stay.  Another mused, “The island is beautiful, and the people are very good.”  Alas, desperate local officials declared the surprise arrival a “humanitarian crisis,” despite many of the summer homes standing vacant, including former President Barack Obama’s 29 acre waterfront estate.  One furious islander told NBC News that DeSantis’ migrant relocation scheme was like “me taking my trash out and just driving to different areas where I live and just throwing my trash there.”

Nevertheless, some local residents insist that their brief brush with the illegal immigrants and hearing their harrowing tales of death and deprivation “enriched us.”  Lisa Belcastro, who manages a winter homeless shelter, was near tears as she waved goodbye.  “I just I want their journey to have a happy ending,” she told CNN.  One bystander tossed the migrants a bag of chocolates.  Juan, we hardly knew ye.
