Although the nominal sanctuary community of Martha’s Vineyard has long since deported its fifty illegal alien arrivals, Nancy Pelosi still found time at a recent press conference to remind everyone that Democrats want “comprehensive” immigration reform, whatever that means. She also found time to squeeze in some insanely out-of-touch, elitist, and truly vile commentary about Hispanic immigrants.
“We need them to pick the crops down here,” the decrepit House Speaker said to a room of reporters. Relating her commentary to Florida governor Ron DeSantis’ epic relocation efforts of Biden’s illegals to the Democrat haven of hoity-toity island, she also expressed faux worry that Florida’s robust agricultural economy would suffer if too many planes departed for coastal blue cities and states.
“We have a shortage of workers in our country and you see even in Florida some of the farmers and the growers saying, ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north?” Pelosi added.
Watch her openly spew disgusting comments about immigrants

Social media users quickly noted that she was a typical “elitist progressive.’ Another laughed at the thought of Nancy Pelosi uttering the word “moral”; “I expected her to spontaneously combust,” the user noted.
“Apparently there are no crops to pick on Martha’s Vineyard,” mocked another.

After DeSantis flew two planeloads of immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, for a span of forty-eight hours the media, Democrats, and leftist voters pretended to care about the plight of migrants. On a humanitarian level, it made perfect sense to send people to palces that claim to want them. On a political level, it was a homerun considering it exposed leftists for their vacuous virtue signaling. DeSantis hammered this point home in a speech during the height of the pretend outrage:
“We are not a sanctuary state and it’s better to be able to go to a sanctuary jurisdiction. And yes, we will help facilitate that transport for you, to be able to go to greener pastures.
Biden would fly people in the middle of the night. Dump them all across this country. There was no warning on any of this.
And all those people in DC and New York were beating their chests when Trump was president, saying they were so proud to be sanctuary jurisdictions, saying how bad it was to have a secure border.
The minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with everyday is brought to their front door, they all of a sudden go berserk and they’re so upset that this is happening.
And it just shows you their virtue signaling is a fraud.”

Breitbart recounted that the DeSantis move to expose leftist virtue signaling hardly represented a blip in the overall migration of people from the southern border to the American interior:
The group of 50 accounted for a mere 0.001 percent of the almost five million border crossers and illegal aliens who made it to the southern border since President Joe Biden (D) took office in January 2021.
Meanwhile, another [Twitter] user pointed to the looming midterm elections, stating, “Legal Hispanics will answer resoundingly in November and send Nancy and a lot of other radical democrats home.”
