Newsom slams ‘morally reprehensible’ migrant transports despite launching homeless bus program as SF mayor


From WWW.FOXNEWS.COM

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is accusing Republican Govs. Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott of possible kidnapping and has called their transporting of illegal immigrants to progressive states “morally reprehensible,” despite launching a program as San Francisco mayor that bussed thousands of homeless people out of San Francisco and the state.

Fox News Digital first reported on Wednesday that DeSantis sent two planes full of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard after promising he would relocate them to a “sanctuary destination.” Abbott similarly began sending thousands of illegals to Washington, D. C., in April and has since sent busloads to New York City and Chicago.

Newsom responded to DeSantis’ latest action by sending a letter asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate whether the governors sending migrants out of their states are breaking the law by kidnapping.

DeSantis fired back during an unrelated news conference in Daytona, describing the flights as “voluntary” and saying Newsom’s letter shows his “hair gel is interfering with his brain function.”

Newsom responded on Twitter by challenging DeSantis to a debate, writing, “I’ll bring my hair gel. You bring your hairspray.”

Abbott also slammed Newsom for claiming migrants are being “kidnapped” and said the migrants volunteer to be bussed elsewhere.

“I know the law very well. We have followed the law to the T and made sure everything we’ve done comports with federal law,” Abbott told Fox News on Friday.

The war of words between the governors came nearly two decades after then-San Francisco Mayor Newsom launched “Homeward Bound,” which gave homeless people in the city a one-way Greyhound bus ticket out of the city.

An NPR reporter who interviewed Newsom in 2006 described the program as the mayor’s “brainchild.”

“Remember, the vast majority of people that are out on the sidewalks are not from San Francisco originally, and they all have some contacts somewhere, a godparent, a mother, brother, sister, uncle, son, daughter,” Newsom argued at the time. “And those are the people, beyond anything else, that can help turn their lives around.”… (Read more)
