Ritzy Nantucket braces for plane load of illegal immigrants

There is a plane destined for Nantucket filled with enough illegal immigrants to fill a bucket.

While that may be a play on the opening line of many a limerick, local officials on the upscale island are saying they expect a plane full of migrants to arrive this week.

“On October 7, 2022 at 2:54 PM, Nantucket Central Dispatch received an informational call from the Nantucket Memorial Airport Operations about a reported flight scheduled to arrive in Nantucket on Tuesday, October 11, 2022,” the Nantucket Police Department said in a press release.

“The purpose of the call was to inform the Nantucket Police Department that the reported scheduled flight had many similarities to the flight and incident that occurred on Martha’s Vineyard,” the release continued. “The charter company was contacted by Nantucket Memorial Airport Operations and they reported the charter flight was a business flight for a group out of Chicago.

But not to worry, officials on Martha’s Vineyard set the precedent on how to quickly dispatch undesirable illegal immigrants when they had the two plane loads that arrived on the tony island at the orders of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis quickly removed to a nearby military base. DeSantis said the flights were part of an effort to “transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations.” The state even activated up to 125 members of the National Guard to assist in moving the migrants to Joint Base Cape Cod, the justification being that the base was better equipped to meet their housing, food, and basic needs.

“In the event that a plane carrying migrants arrives, the Nantucket Police Department and many other city authorities have a detailed plan to deal with such a situation,” police concluded.

The charter company involved is reportedly the same private company that flew the roughly 50 illegal immigrants to the Vineyard, according to The Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror.

Despite the Vineyard housing well over 150,000 wealthy tourists every summer, the claim was that 50 migrants “overwhelmed” the small island that “styled itself as a ‘sanctuary destination’ that welcomes migrants,” as characterized by PBS — three of the six small towns on the island voted to adopt sanctuary policies in 2017, according to PolitiFact.

Yet, the local tourism board deemed the arrival of four dozen or so people a “humanitarian crisis.”

Interestingly, President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden celebrated Thanksgiving on Nantucket Island last year, at the home of private-equity billionaire David Rubenstein.
