Martha’s Vineyard has come under fire on Twitter for declaring a “humanitarian crisis” based on the illegal immigrants sent to them by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, R., on Thursday.

DeSantis’ office revealed to Fox News Digital on Wednesday that the governor was responsible for sending two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard in response to the Biden administration’s failure to secure the southern border.

Massachusetts Democrats, including representatives from Martha’s Vineyard, condemned the governor for using illegal immigrants as “political pawns”, suggesting the city is struggling to care for migrants.

After the news broke, the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce released an update on what they called a “humanitarian crisis”.

CLAY TRAVIS CALLS TO TAKE WARREN’S MARTHA VINEYARD TWEET LITERALLY: ‘SEND ALL’ MIGRANTS TO MASSACHUSETTS

“To our island community, here is an update on the current humanitarian crisis on Martha’s Vineyard…we thank the people for their continued help,” the account wrote.

Twitter users scoffed at the update, noting that the ad itself only reported “about 50 people” in the city as border towns struggle with thousands a day.

Washington Examiner columnist Becket Adams tweeted, “I’m sorry, posting a public notice of this nature for an influx of *50* people is objectively funny. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.”

Greg Price, senior digital strategist at X Strategies LLC, wrote, “They’re declaring 50 people being airlifted to a city that sees thousands of visitors a year as a humanitarian crisis.”

“Wow, 50 illegal aliens have caused a ‘humanitarian crisis’ on Martha’s Vineyard. Imagine the crisis that the policies advocated by MV and Massachusetts have caused in places that receive hundreds or thousands of illegals every day. Screw them , send more,” Townhall.com columnist Derek Hunter wrote.

EpochTV host Hans Mahncke tweeted, “The ‘humanitarian crisis’ The pearl that clings to a situation the pearlers themselves created and yearned for is so out of the ordinary that even people end-stage TDS sufferers should be able to recognize it.”

“So now it’s a ‘crisis’,” tweeted former Department of Defense intelligence analyst Jason Buttrill. “Border states would like to welcome the coastal elite in crisis.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R., has also begun transporting illegal immigrants from his state to liberal cities such as New York, Washington DC and Chicago to protest Biden’s lack of action on the border. Although these metropolitan cities have previously touted their status as “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants, they condemned the move as “inhumane” and struggled to manage the influx.
