Lawsuit Filed By Alianza Americas

Alianza Americas, a non profit immigrant advocacy group has filed a class action lawsuit. Lawyers for the civil rights organization represent more than 30 of the nearly 50 migrants that were flown to Martha’s Vineyard. The transportation of the migrants was part of an on going protest by Republican Governors. The lawsuit was filed against Gov. Ron DeSantis, The Florida Department of Transportation, Secretary Jared Perdue, The State of Florida, and the State Department of Transportation. The suit said the defendants defrauded vulnerable immigrants to advance a political motive. Executive director of Alianza Americas, Oscara Chacon, called DeSantis’ flights to Martha’s Vineyard “morally despicable.”
