A Florida senator has filed a new lawsuit against Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis for orchestrating the shipment of dozens of migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard.

State Sen. Jason Pizzo, a Democrat who represents the Miami region, is accusing DeSantis of violating budget laws by using local funds to relocate migrants from another state, according to the suit filed late Thursday.

Pizzo’s lawsuit, which doesn’t seek any damages, is asking for a judge to ban DeSantis from using state money for any future migrant flights.


The report states that the legislature did approve this budget and Pizzo voted for it. Pizzo believes that DeSantis was not clear in language of the budget and feels manipulated. The approved budget appropriated $12 million for a program to help “the transport of unauthorized aliens from this state consistent with federal law.”

Pizzo contends that the illegals are not “unauthorized aliens” because once they came to the United States they claimed asylum.

He told the Miami Herald, “This is very clear and straightforward.”

Pizzo continued, “The governor had legislators carry and pass bills that were designed to suit his agenda and that he subsequently signed into law. And even with that completely privileged position, he still can’t comply with the law. He set the rules for the game and then he can’t follow them.”

A DeSantis spokeswoman commented on the lawsuit saying, “Senator Pizzo never misses an opportunity for his 15 minutes of fame and is challenging an action on an appropriation he voted for.”

Reporter Jay O’Brien tweeted Friday, “NEW: FL State Sen Jason Pizzo (D-Miami Dade) has filed a request for an emergency injunction, asking a Tallahassee judge to prevent @GovRonDeSantis’s administration from using state funds to pay for any future migrant flights. .@senpizzo argues the flights violate the language in the state budget, which set side $12 million to pay for ‘the transport of unauthorized aliens from this state consistent with federal law.’ Pizzo says flights originating in Texas with brief stopovers in FL don’t count.”

“Gov. DeSantis responded to this point last week, arguing that bc many migrants intend to come to FL the flights are within that legislative language. ‘Most of them are intending to come to FL. They are coming to FL. We are taking them from FL to sanctuary jurisdictions’ he said. For the ‘link the complaint’ requests, best I can do while currently traveling is repost this from @MarcACaputo. If I get to my laptop before the complaint hits the Leon Co court website, I’ll upload to link. Have an excellent night!”

Pizzo tweeted, “Sec. @FDOT_Secretary – still awaiting reply to @LeaderBookFL’s letter requesting information.”

“Still waiting for a version of this map that shows a connection in Florida.”

  5. This administration should be sued for letting them cross the border ILLEGALLY!! Then this administration needs to be held accountable for purposely allowing our border to be a national security risk!!!

  6. Then pizza take them home with you and u support them !!! Bull shit u lying demorats are only let them in the country so they can vote illegally for our tax money !!!

  7. Crazy times with these Democrats and their political public stunts! Good to know Pizzo’s Senate seat (Dist. 38) is up for grabs Nov. 2022…hope the peeps in Miami vote him out!

  8. Here’s a fact illegal immigrants have no legal rights in our country they are a illegally in this country again another hack piece by the communist Democrat Nazis party

  9. You can’t just come here, claim asylum, and mooch off tax payers without contributing to the system. You don’t break into someone’s house and expect them to house you, feed you and pay all your bills.

  10. Bwahhhhhaaa!!! DeSantis is an attorney and knows the law. He also knows that all these illegals have no rights here in the US, THEY ALL BROKE FEDERAL LAWS!!!!

  11. Stop telling the country these illegal aliens have rights in our country, they enter illegally and are nothing more than criminals! I do think what the Governor’s are doing is a good ideal, it has shined a light on the lefts hypocrisy but I think they should be sent back to their country!
