The ongoing feud between California Governor Gavin Newsom and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken a new turn as a second plane carrying migrants landed in Sacramento. The flight, which originated in Florida, had passengers carrying papers indicating they were seeking asylum in the United States.
This follows the landing of another plane carrying more than a dozen migrants in Sacramento just days ago. Governor Newsom has accused Governor DeSantis of using migrants as political pawns in their long-standing war of words.
In response, Governor DeSantis has defended the move, stating that Florida is not capable of processing all the migrants and that Governor Newsom should be grateful for their arrival.
The situation has garnered national attention, with the editorial board of the Los Angeles Times slamming the use of migrants as political tools. The board stated that the migrants are human beings and should not be used for political gain.
Meanwhile, Governor Newsom has made headlines for his harsh words towards Governor DeSantis, calling him a “small, pathetic man” for his handling of the situation.
The feud between the two governors shows no signs of abating, and it remains to be seen what will happen with the migrants who have now landed in California.
