This week, the Obamas’ vacation on Martha’s Vineyard was interrupted when a driver for the affluent former First Lady was dismissed for unlawfully harassing a former girlfriend and threatening to have her deported following a lover’s fight.
The region, a haven for the nation’s affluent, has recently come under scrutiny for the despicable and bigoted treatment of migrants who were transported to the upscale holiday resort.
The New York Post reported on the specifics of a recent immigration shakeup and the community’s response.
“Longtime Martha’s Vineyard residents hailed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ move to relocate migrants to the vacation island as a way of highlighting President Biden’s border crisis — with one suggesting Friday that ex-President Barack Obama’s $12 million estate should have been used as a processing center.
The idyllic enclave off the coast of Massachusetts was plunged into chaos and the local tourist board declared a “humanitarian crisis’’ Thursday after just 50 Venezuelan migrants landed there.
Resident Elizabeth Osborn Bostrom told The Post that she “stayed out of town most of the day “to avoid the commotion.
“People here leave their doors open. It’s safe and there’s no real crime, usually,” she said.
The next narrative must thus be fairly upsetting to them.
“A Secret Service employee is off the job, and is facing charges of harassment and witness intimidation on Martha’s Vineyard. CNN reports that Douglas Vines is the driver for former First Lady Michelle Obama, according to a police report. Vine threatened to have a woman deported and recorded her without her knowledge. His security clearance has been suspended pending the investigation,” CBS News in Boson reported.
