(TJV) The Venezuelan illegal aliens flown to Martha’s Vineyard last week filed a class action lawsuit Tuesday against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Florida officials.
“The migrants allege in the complaint that they were given misleading information promising cash assistance, employment services and housing assistance, which they called ‘bold-faced lies,’” according to Axios.
The migrats are being represented by lawyers with the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) Alianza Americas and Lawyers for Civil Rights.
Most likely the activist lawyers , concocted the lawsuit and the migrants are being used as pawns in their open borders activism.
In response to the class action lawsuit, DeSantis has released the “consent forms” allegedly signed by the migrants.
The lawsuit accuses DeSantis of violating the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights of the illegal aliens by enticing them to board flights to Martha’s Vineyard.
“By fraudulently inducing individual Plaintiffs to cross state lines in the manner described herein, Defendants unreasonably seized Plaintiffs without just cause,” the lawsuit claims:
By fraudulently inducing individual Plaintiffs to board an airplane and cross state lines in the manner described herein, Defendants engaged in an egregious abuse of power that deprived individual Plaintiffs of their liberty in a manner that shocks the conscience. [Emphasis added]
Defendants’ conduct of inducing immigrants to travel across state lines by fraud and misrepresentation discriminates against individuals on the basis of race and national origin … this conduct impermissibly discriminates against non-citizen Plaintiffs on the basis of alienage and deprives them of the equal protection of the laws within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. [Emphasis added]
The lawsuit asks the federal courts to determine that DeSantis violated federal law by transporting illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard and to prevent the governor from carrying out any more migrant flights to other states and localities.
The case is Alianza Americas v. DeSantis, No. 1:22-cv-11550 in the United States District Court of Massachusetts.
