Contributing sentiments towards policy:

54% : The day after Florida took credit for sending two planeloads of undocumented immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, Gov. Ron DeSantis suggested the flights were to "protect" the state while the backlash swelled, with critics decrying the flights as an inhumane political stunt.
53% :Illegal immigration is one of the political flash points for Republicans ahead of the November midterm elections and the 2024 presidential race, and is a popular topic on Fox News -- which was given exclusive video of the migrants arriving in Martha's Vineyard.
53% : The migrants had been released by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as they await asylum or other claims to try and remain in the country.
49% : DeSantis, speaking at a news conference in Niceville, said the flights were part of the state's "innovative ways to protect Florida.""We take what's happening at the southern border very seriously, unlike some, unlike the president of the United States who has refused to lift a finger to secure that border," DeSantis said.
43% : Florida's nascent program mirrors one in Texas, where Gov. Gregg Abbot has touted "Operation Lone Star," busing thousands of undocumented migrants voluntarily to sanctuary cities.
