Here's the document the Martha's Vineyard 50 signed

Ron DeSantis vents at 'opportunistic activists' engaging in 'political theater' as lawsuit claims he 'exploited' migrants with Martha's Vineyard flight: Florida Gov. shares consent form given out before trip

  • Ron DeSantis has hit back at 'opportunistic activists' who claimed in a lawsuit he 'exploited' a group of migrants by flowing them to Martha's Vineyard
  • His office claims each of the migrants were required to sign consent forms before they boarded a chartered plane to the island 
  • Spokeswoman Taryn Fenske also said that the trip was done on a 'voluntary' basis to a sanctuary state
  • Plaintiffs allege the governor's office trapped them in a 'premeditated, fraudulent, and illegal scheme'
  • They said the plan 'centered on exploiting [the migrants] for  advancing their own personal, financial and political interests'
  • Migrants claim that those working on DeSantis' scheme trolled outside of an immigration shelter in San Antonio, Texas and offered McDonald's gift cards
  • They promised the migrants they would 'receive employment, housing, educational opportunities' and falsely told them they were flying to DC or Boston
