    Remarks from Lisa Belcastro, the coordinator for Martha's Vineyard homeless shelter Harbor Homes, went viral Thursday after she was asked about 50 illegal immigrants arriving on the island.

    Belcastro's remarks come after Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis sent the illegal immigrants to the island off the coast of Massachusetts on Wednesday.

    "Yes, Florida can confirm the two planes with illegal immigrants that arrived in Martha's Vineyard today were part of the state's relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations," an official for DeSantis' office said in a statement. "States like Massachusetts, New York, and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country' by incentivizing illegal immigration through their designation as 'sanctuary states' and support for the Biden Administration's open border policies."

    "In this past legislative session the Florida Legislature appropriated $12 million to implement a program to facilitate the transport of illegal immigrants from this state consistent with federal law," the official added.

    The 50 illegal immigrants landing on the small island, where ultrawealthy progressives like former President Barack Obama live, sent the political Left into meltdown mode, with some falsely claiming that DeSantis had created "an ethnic cleansing program."

    Millions of illegal immigrants have poured into the U.S. under President Joe Biden, particularly into southern states, but the media and the political Left have shown less interest in addressing the humanitarian and national security crisis that has erupted under Biden.

    When Belcastro was asked Thursday about what the "most difficult challenges" were that the island faced from the arrival of the 50 illegal immigrants, she responded: "The difficult challenges are, we have, at some point in time they have to move from here to somewhere else."

    "We cannot, we don't have the services to take care of 50 immigrants," she continued. "And we certainly don't have housing. We're in a housing crisis as we are on this island. And we don't, we can't house everyone here that lives here and work here. We don't have housing for 50 more people."

    WATCH:


    "Tucker's riff tonight on the hypocrisy of wealthy MV residents, like the Obamas, rejecting immigrants in THEIR community is perfect," media personality David Asman wrote on Twitter.

    "Liberal elites are the biggest hypocrites on earth," Nile Gardiner, former aide to Margaret Thatcher, wrote on Twitter. "They worship open borders until the border arrives at their own doorstep."

    "Wow. The wealthiest, most well-connected people on earth can't take care of 50 people," Joel Berry, Managing Editor of the Babylon Bee tweeted. "Imagine what the poor and middle-class folks dealing with tens of thousands per day in border towns are dealing with."

    Political commentator Stephen L. Miller mocked: "Despicable xenophobia. This is not who we are."

    "50 people. These rich snobs are claiming they can't handle *50 people* in their town," John Cooper of the Heritage Foundation tweeted. "Meanwhile border towns are dealing with hundreds of people every single day."

    New York Post reporter Jon Levine tweeted: "How many people attended President Obama's covid superspreader party on Martha's Vineyard?"

    "Maybe they can re-erect the tent?" Levine added. "Or just knock on his door. I am sure his home has space."

    Foreign policy analyst Michael Scott Doran responded: "Don't get her wrong. She's likes immigrants. But they need to be in a community with low rent housing."

    "It's unfair to THEM to house them around rich people," Doran continued. "She doesn't realize that she is reading from a script that DeSantis wrote for her."

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
