Online reports and flight tracking data show that more planes used by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to fly immigrants to other cities have taken off from San Antonio. One flight that is believed to be carrying migrants was expected to fly out of Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio around 8 a.m. Tuesday, September 20, and land Florida around 10:30 a.m. central time.

Data on FlightRadar 24 says the J328 aircraft, designated as UE11, will have a 15-minute layover in Crestview, Florida once it lands.  It will then take off for Delaware Coastal Airport in Sussex County, Delaware. The flight will land 40-minutes from Rehoboth Beach, where President Joe Biden has a vacation home, Newsweek reports.

Journalist Judd Legum tweeted on Monday, September 19, that this plane was used to fly immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard. 

The flight path is similar to a separate flight that also landed in Bob Sikes Airport in Crestview, Florida on Monday night, according to a video posted by Florida attorney Daniel Uhlfelder, who is behind the Remove Ron group. A second video shows Uhlfelder speaking to local law enforcement who took his driver license asking why he was at the airport. He said he was there because he believed the flight was carrying immigrants.

I hasn’t been confirmed whether any of these flights are carrying immigrants. 

DeSantis also sent 48 immigrants on a plane that flew out of San Antonio that landed in Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday, September 14. Massachusetts State Rep. Dylan Fernandes said that the immigrants were told they would have jobs waiting for them upon landing in Martha’s Vineyard, which was a lie. 

On Monday, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said at a press conference that he is opening an investigation into the flights sent to Martha’s Vineyard, but didn’t say what laws could have been broken nor did he mention DeSantis. 

“I believe there is some criminal activity involved here,” Salazar said at the press conference. “But at present we are trying to keep an open mind and we are going to investigate to find out what exact laws were broken if that does turn out to be the case.”
