Next Stop, Delaware: Plane That Took Migrants to Martha's Vineyard Flying to Town Near Biden's 2 Homes
President Joe Biden’s home state may be the next to receive a flight of illegal migrants and asylum seekers courtesy of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
A plane was slated to fly from Texas to Delaware on Tuesday, with a stopover in Crestview, Florida, according to the Delaware News Journal.
A flight tracker listed the aircraft’s destination as Delaware Coastal Airport in Georgetown, Delaware.
That’s less than a 40-minute drive from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where Biden has a comfortable beachfront mansion. The airport in Georgetown is the closest one to Biden’s Rehoboth Beach home.

It’s common for illegal migrants arriving at the southern border to make a legal claim for asylum. Immigration courts still deny the overwhelming majority of asylum claims despite approval rates climbing under Biden, according to a Syracuse University study.
Biden made a sarcastic allusion to DeSantis visiting Delaware’s Atlantic beaches when asked about the migrant flights on Tuesday.
