House Homeland Security chair calls on DOJ, DHS to probe DeSantis

House Homeland Security Committee chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) on Thursday joined the chorus of calls urging the federal government to investigate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' (R) transport of migrants.

Why it matters: Thompson is urging the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice to probe whether coercion was involved after some of the migrants filed a lawsuit against DeSantis alleging Florida officials used "bold-faced lies" to mislead them about the flights.

The migrants said they were promised cash assistance, employment services and housing assistance as part of the transport.

What he's saying: "I write with grave concern regarding the allegations that the migrants who were flown to Martha's Vineyard on September 14th were coerced to board the flight through false information," Thompson said in the letter.

He is demanding an investigation into whether federal laws were violated as well as an "immediate review of the circumstances regarding these individuals' release into and transport within the United States."

9. This is like asking the fox to guard the hen house

It has been reported that DHS agents falsified addressed and other information on the documents that the asylum seekers were given as genuine documentation of their status. Why would DHS be requested to investigate their own fraudulent documentation? I'd love to know if what I've read is incorrect.....
