The Massachusetts National Guard has been activated to deal with 50 illegal immigrants flown in from Florida. The Guard is shipping the migrants to Joint Base Cape Cod off of the ritzy leftist island.
American Military News reports:
The Massachusetts governor’s office announced the plan in a press release on Friday, noting that 125 members of the state’s National Guard are joining the “relief effort.”
NBC News’ Emilie Ikeda tweeted video of the scene on Martha’s Vineyard.

Additional video shows multiple buses arriving on Martha’s Vineyard to transport the illegal immigrants “off the island.”
“Buses have arrived in Edgartown to transport migrants from St. Andrew’s Parish House. There is one big bus and two shorter buses to transport folks off the island. People with bags are taking selfies and hugging volunteers goodbye,” tweeted the Boston Globe’s Samantha J. Gross.
