Texas Sheriff opens criminal investigation into Ron DeSantis for "luring" migrants
Pretty clear from this that DeSantis is making a run for president regardless if Trump decides to run.
Summary of investigation:
-DeSantis paid Florida aviation company Vertol Systems $1.5mm to move migrants from Texas to Martha's Vineyard
-A Venezuelan was paid a fee to tell other migrants that there were job offers waiting for them elsewhere; the migrants were "lured" according to the Sheriff to a hotel, before being flown to Florida then Martha's Vineyard
-Sheriff said the migrants were just left there after a brief photo op
-DeSantis says these were illegal migrants that were abandoned and homeless in Texas; Sheriff says all the migrants were actually here legally and were documented
-DeSantis says all the migrants signed consent forms and were given maps upon arrival; Sheriff says that the migrants were misled and are victims of a crime
