A nonprofit network that left-wing billionaire George Soros backs has bankrolled an activist group that is suing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other officials over the state’s move to fly illegal migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
The advocacy law firm Lawyers for Civil Rights filed the lawsuit Tuesday with Alianza Americas, an immigration nonprofit, on behalf of “Vineyard migrants and all similarly situated people who are fraudulently induced to travel across state lines by DeSantis and the State of Florida.”
Three nonprofits in Soros’ Open Society Foundations network have notably given almost $1.4 million to Alianza Americas between 2016 and 2020, according to Open Society Foundations records.
“Soros’ vision of a global ‘open society’ hinges on wrenching open every country’s borders, whether the citizens of those countries want to or not,” Hayden Ludwig, a senior researcher at the conservative investigative think tank Capital Research, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “We’ve traced tens of millions of dollars flowing through his Open Society Network into open borders groups in America, Europe, and the developing world, always with the same goal: undermining national sovereignty.”
